We embrace everyone and everything creative. This week we are looking at an awesome DIY project. Weddings are really the time to put in and show your personality and creativity. A big theme for weddings lately has been rustic themes, and if you are looking toward doing something like that for your wedding, we have some serious floral DIY ideas that will take your rustic wedding theme to a whole other level and make your decor stand out from everyone else.
Bringing in who you are and what you love into your wedding is so much fun, and really what a wedding should be. If you want to take this popular rustic theme and make it your own, you can use trophy bouquets to decorate any venue.
Find an old trophy cup you have. You can either keep its shine for an equestrian look, give it a rustic look for your rustic or vintage theme, or completely paint it to go with the color theme of your wedding or party.
For the horse lovers and beautiful equestrian goers who are planning on having this sport apart of their wedding, flowers in a trophy cup can be the most beautiful and fitting decor for your wedding. You can either leave it the way it is, or you can paint it with a metallic gold or silver paint. Make sure to find paint that works on metals. The bright colors against the gold or silver trophy cup will look amazing, and it is a simple and beautiful way to bring the floral and sport together.
The best part about this is you can use your beautiful ribbons from your shows in your wedding as well! We love this wedding look using the ribbons at each ends of the garland. This would look great for the head seating for the bride and groom. It might also be a fun idea to use them at the tables, possibly for menus or table decor.
For the eclectic and rustic wedding theme, using trophies might not be your first thought, but finding your old trophies can be the best thing that happened to you. Find your old trophies and if they don’t have enough rust or ware to them you can do that on your own. One way is to use chalk paint and then once that is dry use antique medium over that with just a paper towel. You can also use a wire brush, which will definitely get the job done. After you have made them look just perfect you can really put any sort of flowers in to give you the eclectic and rustic look that no one else will have.
Here are other trophy bouquets ideas for any occasion or just around the house..
