Note: I’m working away with my dad and Sue and we’re making progress on a bunch of different projects in Maryland.  This week I have appointments with a couple of realtors to get suggestions for a list price for our house and our pack and move days are scheduled for the end of the week.  Here’s hoping it all goes as planned.

Considering that we have just moved to quite a popular destination wedding location and I never get tired of reminiscing about our wedding, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play with a bunch of fabulous bling from the David Tutera bridal collection.

Specifically I thought it would be fun to recreate our welcome table complete with our unique guest book (more on that in another post) and a fun picture banner idea I wish I had created for our own special day.

Additional supplies (all purchased at the Dollar Store) include:

  • ribbon
  • craft paper
  • glue stick
  • clothes pins
  • glitter letter stickers

I think a picture banner would be a fun way to greet your guests at a wedding reception or even a graduation party, shower or anniversary party.  Any fun party that is a celebration of a milestone really.

Here are the steps I took to create a do it yourself picture banner with a lot of fun David Tutera accessories.

Step 1 – Use a David Tutera table number as a template to create slightly smaller craft paper quatrefoil shape.  The table numbers have a black decorative line on them that I just cut around to keep the same shape, just slightly smaller.  I knew I was going to make 5 different pictures for the banner so I cut 10 shapes out of the craft paper so I could cover the front and back of each table number.

Step 3 – Glue your pictures onto the craft paper.  I just printed my pictures on a regular color printer and used a glue stick for all of the gluing.  Place something a little heavy on it while it sets and you’re good to go.

Step 4 – Bling them out with David Tutera goodies.  I really love the look of the crown pick as a pin and the oval rhinestones added just the right amount of sparkle.

    This is lovely, very pretty. My daughter is getting married next year and I’m pinning a lot of ideas, since she wants it here. Yikes! So, I’ve pinned this, I love it.
