You may recall a post I wrote last year as part of a Festive Face-Off Challenge set by Country Baskets – I made a pretty Vintage Christmas Wreath.
Well, I was contacted by them again to ask if I’d like to take part in their latest blogger challenge – Accessorize Yourself, where I would have to make an accessory that I would wear to a wedding. I’m always up for a challenge, so gladly accepted!
These are the items I was sent…
- roll of pink/purple organza
- a bouquet of faux flowers – roses & orchids
- lace ribbon
- wired crystals
- diamantes on a long strand
- a roll of heart ribbon
- wedding place cards
…I was allowed to use my own supplies, which ended up being some pop clasps and a needle and thread.
And what did I decide to make? Well, after much deliberation, I made a wrist corsage, which I thought was something a little bit different. To make my accessory, I used the organza, faux flowers, lace ribbon, heart ribbon and the wired crystals. (Entries must use 5 items from the supplies sent.)
Unfortunately, I had some technical difficulties, in that one of my video files became corrupted, and so, I had to cut that complete from the final edit – boooo – but I recorded me talking about the final steps, which actually was just me sewing the bits together. I’m also aware in the title I misspelled accessorize, but by that point I was so annoyed with the video corruption, that I didn’t have it in me to go back and sort it out… I hope you forgive me!
Disclosure: I was sent craft materials from Country Baskets to make a wedding accessory. This post is my entry into the Accessorize Yourself Challenge.
