From beginning to end, a wedding has so much potential for DIY decor. Think about it: as the newlyweds walk/drive/skip away, guests often shower them with rice or confetti. Usually, there are bells and whistles and everything in between. Streamers are also a popular choice, especially since they create an awesome visual. But what about flowers? It only seems appropriate for a wedding celebration. Plus, it’s more environmentally friendly than confetti and glitter. Because plants.
That’s where this wedding DIY comes in. I used plastic push pop containers, so they’re totally reusable. Obviously, they’re made for ice pops, but something tells me that’s not appropriate send-off material.
- Push pop containers (I used these by Darice, but you can also find them on Amazon)
- Dried flowers… lots of them
- Gems, appliques, and other embellishments
- Hot glue gun or strong craft glue
1. Fill each push pop with dried flowers. This is one of many opportunities to coordinate every aspect of your wedding. For example, you can use leftover or extra petals from your bouquet or centerpieces.
2. Adhere the embellishments of your choice. Again, this is the perfect chance to utilize leftovers or extras from other projects.
That’s it! If you want the photographer to catch a beautiful shot, have guests wave the push pops around while letting the petals out. They can also shake them in the air.
Another alternative is to use these push pop containers as storage. From there, people have the choice to hand-toss the dried flowers bit by bit.
