I jumpstarted my DIYs last month and I didn’t expect it but I had fun doing the wedding cord! I love how it turned out!

Blue and green wedding cord..

The crystal beads and letter initials were purchased from the Philippines (thank you Pine Rose haha) on a whim since I didn’t know exactly what beads I wanted to buy and how I wanted the cord too look like! When I got back here in Singapore, I realized that the beads lacked variety so I purchased additional czech glass beads, round acrylic gold  accents and gold plated rose connector from

Labor of love 'to!

I’ve also finished around 15 pcs wedding wands and I need to make around 10 more in blue color. I also plan to make banner wands with the words congratulations, yay, etc since our chuch doesn’t allow confetti/petal throws.

Lastly, I wanted two of our flower girls to carry a “here comes the bride” sign just before I walk down aisle so I created one! I wanted heart shaped chalkboards but I couldn’t find cheap chalkboards (chalkboard paper and chalkboard paint are expensive as well) so I tried making it using a black construction paper and the “chalk” will be white pastel crayon and it worked perfectly!

mock up. haven't decided what "font" to use to write the words "here comes the bride"

Almost done!

I don’t have a photo of the finished banner but I’ll be posting it soon! I tied the hearts together using ribbon and I made handles at the ends using the same ribbon. I might add flowers at the handles.
