Kusudama Flower table decoration

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I am enjoying what I think is called a Staycation. My husband has taken the week as leave and we are having a lovely time catching up with friends, going out and going to the cinema. We do love going to see films.

I did get the Save the Dare fridge magnets finished. So that is the first wedding job done. There are many more to come.  We have been talking about table decorations and I have been having a play.


We had been thinking about paper flowers and I remembered I had been given and Kusudama ball kit by my crafty friend. This is just a play. We did see in one shop a jam jar with lace stuck on it, which I thing would look nice, selling for £6. They would be so easy to make. If you mention weddings the price just seems to shoot up. There is a battery tea light in the bottom it doesn't show to well in the sun. 


I have seen these flowers before I was surprised how easily they went together. The centres are Babies Breath with Bead from Hobbycraft. 


Here are the fridge magnets. They are just a bit smaller than A7. I actually bruised on of my fingers cutting the magnetic tape to stick on  the back. . 


I made a box to keep them together. Our daughter did draw the picture herself it is her rabbits as a bride and groom. Yes the boy rabbit is smaller than the girl rabbit. 


This is just a first experiment. I am not sure how table decorations will work out but it will be a fun project to work on. 

Have a great day. We are just off to a Silver Screen screening at the cinema.


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
