Last month I shared with you all my packing list for a destination bachelorette. Today, I want to share with you all how I made some of the decorations for the weekend and some free printouts and templates you can use for your future parties!
Photo Booth Backdrop
I used the same methods as my DIY Magazine Heart Garland, but instead of feeding the hearts through the sewing machine horizontally, I put them through vertically.
Photo Booth Props
Scrapbook Paper | Scissors | Wooden Skewers | Glue
I used Budget Savvy Bride’s freebies, selecting the items I liked and cutting them out of the scrapbook paper. Cut out two of every shape and sandwich the wooden skewers between the two. Keep the two together with glue or tape.
I assembled these at New Orleans and had to make due with tape, which did not work so well. I would suggest bringing along glue or the adhesive used for scrapbooking.
Cut out a pattern you want for your banner. I simply took a rectangular piece of scrap paper, folded it in half and cut a small right triangle in it to create mine.
Cut out however many you need for your saying. “Cheers My Dears” required 13 pieces. Use the hearts for spacers between each word.
Use your letter stencils to trace the letters on and paint or color them in with a marker. I used a white paint marker then traced the edges with a matching teal marker because that was what worked best on the scrapbook paper I was using. It had glitter mixed into it, so normal marker couldn’t adhere to the material.
Use the single hole punch to punch holes on either end of each letter. String it all together and decorate!
Note: you can put whatever you want in your own party favors
Ordering or buying the items are straightforward. Go the extra mile with customized labels to put on the confetti poppers and with the hair ties! The links send you to Canva where you can edit the labels I’ve made.
10″x 8″ Picture Frame | Canva Print Out | Lipsticks | Pen
Click on the link for the print out I made. I used one of DesignLoveFest’s tech wallpapers for the background for mine. I’m not sure what her copyright is, I assume she allows for personal use with no monetary profit like I used here for a simple gift for the bride. But not for distribution, so I removed the background on the shared link. You can easily leave it blank with simply the words because it’s meant to be a placeholder for a group picture or a memorable bachelorette picture.
