    Add a touch of cuteness to your spring table decor with this felt bunny DIY project!

     

    Materials:

    Felt (white and pink)
    Needle & thread (white)
    Scissors
    Marker
    Pom poms (white)

     

    Directions:

     

    1. Draw, trace, or print out a bunny outline to use as a template.

    2. Once you have a template, place it onto the white felt and use it to cut out two bunny shapes.

    3. Use the same template to cut out two bunny ears from the pink felt. These will be used for the inner portion of the bunny's ears.

     

    4. Stitch one pink ear onto each bunny. Make sure that the pink portion of the ear is on the side of the bunny that will be facing inwards.

    5. Place one bunny cut out on top of the other. Use a needle and thread to stitch the two pieces together along the border of the body. Make sure to leave the bottom part open. 

    6. For the tail, sew a white pom pom onto the back of the bunny.

    7. Feel free to add more details such as eyes and a cute nose!

     

    8. Roll a piece of leftover felt and place it inside the bunny to help prop it up.

    9. You're done! :)

    For a vintage-inspired style, we love the idea of displaying vintage plates on the wall. Usually this is done indoors, but if you're having a spring party, why not bring them outdoors? Here's how we hung vintage plates in our spring lookbook.

     

    Materials:

    Plates
    Museum Putty

     

    Directions:

     

    1. Gather a collection of cute tea plates. You can find inexpensive ones at your local thrift shop or goodwill.

    2. Affix 2 or 3 small pieces of museum putty to the back of each plate.

    3. Firmly press the plates onto a wall.

    4. Cover your wall with as many as you like and enjoy!

    Transform old vintage finds into something new! For our spring lookbook, we revamped an old croquet set into a cute prop. You could also use this for spring parties or decor. Note: You can find an inexpensive croquet set online or at local garage sales, thrift stores, etc. We found ours for $5 on Goodwill’s website!

     

    Materials:

    Croquet Set
    Spray paint
    Acrylic paint
    Paint brush

     

    Directions:

    1. Choose a color that you’d like to paint your croquet mallet with and start spray painting! You’ll have to paint one side and allow time for it to dry before flipping the mallet over to paint the other side.

     

    2. Once the paint on the croquet mallet has dried, use a small paint brush and acrylic to decorate your mallet with stripes. Feel free to use as many different colors as you’d like!

     

    3. Make it a set by painting the croquet balls in matching colors! To paint each croquet ball, you’ll have to spray paint one side and allow time to dry before painting the other side.

     

    4. Have fun!

    With our spring lookbook, Tea for Two, still on our minds, we browsed Style Me Pretty for more tea party inspiration. When we came across these teacup vases, we instantly bookmarked them for future inspiration. Aren't they charming? In addition to providing vintage-inspired wedding detail, these could be gorgeous wedding favors too!

    This spur of the moment bridal shoot was photographed by Jennifer, of Flora + Fauna photography, and we're so impressed with the end result! 

    Jennifer said, "The model I used is one of my best friends. I'm kind of obsessed with freckles. I think they photograph so beautifully! Every once in a while, I feel like I need some inspiration -- so I threw together a cute little head wreath, called my friend, and put together a wardrobe. We drove around and found this fun little field to shoot in."

    In addition to her cute freckles, we've fallen in love with this model's vibrant hair and wildflower head wreath, and of course, we think she looks stunning in our Gemma Lynn wedding dress too. ♥
