Wood Letter Wedding Decoration & Felt Flowers

I never thought I could love felt flowers almost as much as the real deal. But awhile ago when we talked about these felt wedding ideas and I couldn’t believe how beautiful felt could really be. And with further digging, I spotted this wood letter wedding decoration over at The Felt Flower Shop and now I just adore all things felt. Take a look and I think you’ll see what I mean! (Oh, and this can be re-used after the wedding as home decor!) The ampersand is cute, too.

DIY Washi Tape Ideas

First, what is washi tape? Washi tape is like a masking tape (removable from most surfaces) and is typically combined with acrylic glue. The best way to explain washi tape is to think of a pretty form of masking tape: it comes in a variety of colors, patterns, and prints and can be incorporated into many DIY projects.
