Hooray for the SPD linkup coming back! I wasn't quite sure what to blog about without the link-up. I have a huge list of projects lined up to share and I'm really excited about it.
Today I'm going to share with you what I made for my bridal shower hostess gifts. I came up with the idea in my head, based off of a few projects I've seen floating around Pinterest.
Here are the individual ideas I found on Pinterest:
Dollar Tree Chalkboards
Painted Wooden Spoons
Polka Dot Wine Glasses
And I combined all three, plus a cake stand and dish towel to create this:
You can tell from the picture above that I painted the chalkboards Mint Green and I wrote each hostesses name on them in chalk.
This is what the wine glasses looked like:
Mint and Gold to match the wedding colors
And here are the wooden spoons:
It's hard to tell in the picture, but I used various shades of green/blue going from dark to light to make it appear ombre.
I was so excited when I found these dish towels at TJMaxx because they matched the spoons perfectly. Unfortunately, I couldn't find enough towels or wooden spoons so the hostesses' gifts at our second shower were a little different.
This is how I assembled them before I put them on the cake stand and wrapped them up in clear plastic.
These are the different cake stands I made:
I get the plates from Target, TJMaxx, Ross, etc. I find the candlesticks at antique stores and flea markets. I just paint them and glue them to the plates. Super easy and super cheap.
As you can probably imagine, it took a lot of TLC to create 15 hostess gifts. I spent a lot of time on my days off working on these, but it was so fun. I love giving homemade gifts because I love receiving homemade gifts.
Thanks for stopping by. Can't wait to see all the projects linked up!
