<ul><li><p>Creative &amp; Beautiful DIY Wedding </p><p>Decoration Ideas </p></li><li><p>Your wedding dcor can transform an ordinary venue into a beautiful and magical space for one </p><p>night, so that you can celebrate your very special event in style. It is not necessary to spend a lot of </p><p>money on dcor for your wedding either, especially since this event will probably be very expensive </p><p>already. In order to cut down on your expenses, there are simple DIY decorations that you can make </p><p>that will look great yet will not cost you a lot. </p><p>Here are some fun and creative DIY wedding decoration ideas: </p><p>Wedding Balloon Arches </p><p>This simple design element can make the space look special, especially if you use balloon arches to </p><p>frame where you and your spouse will be standing while you are getting married. Usually a frame is </p><p>used to build a balloon arch, which simply involves twisting the balloons around the frame. </p><p>However, it is not always necessary to have a frame. </p><p>You can create the arch by using foil or latex helium balloons and tying them to a long length of </p><p>string or fishing wire. Then, use a weight to weigh down both ends of the wire. The balloons will </p><p>naturally create an arch because of the helium. You can change the shape of the arch by moving the </p><p>balloons closer together or further apart. </p><p>Latex balloons when correctly helium-filled have an approximate float time of 10-12 hours, so make </p><p>sure that you build the arch right before the Wedding for the arch top look its best! Find a great </p><p>selection of quality latex balloons here. </p><p>Foil balloons, when correctly helium-filled average a float time of 5-7 days making an earlier set-up </p><p>easier. Find a wide range of quality Foil Balloons a great prices here. </p></li><li><p>Hanging Blossom Centrepiece </p><p>Looking for an idea for a beautiful wedding centrepiece that will create a magical atmosphere? </p><p>Instead of putting flowers in a vase on the table, why not try hanging them from ribbon and </p><p>suspending them from the ceiling? You can also add candle holders to create a special effect with </p><p>various levels of soft light. For a beautiful vintage look, you can consider using dried flowers </p><p>suspended from the ceiling. </p></li><li><p>Floating Candle Table Decorations </p><p>Heres another attractive idea for decorating the tables at your wedding floating candle bowls. </p><p>They are inexpensive, as all you will need to buy are glass containers and tea candles. Fill the </p><p>containers up with water and add some flower petals, pretty leaves and perhaps even some glitter. </p><p>Then, use the small tea light candles to float on top of the water. You could even consider adding </p><p>some food colouring to the water to give it a colourful tinge. </p><p>Calligraphy Rock Place Holders </p><p>This project starts with a trip to the forest or the beach, where you can look for beautiful rocks that </p><p>are all smooth and around the same size and shape. However, dont worry about having them all </p><p>exactly the same, this crafty natural wedding dcor idea is all about the imperfect beauty of nature. </p><p>The next step is to clean the rocks thoroughly, scrubbing them with an old toothbrush to get the dirt </p><p>out of the crevices. Then, use acrylic craft paint to decorate them and to paint the names of your </p><p>guests on them. You can use stencils to get the perfect lettering, or just paint freehand if you have a </p><p>steady hand and good calligraphy skills. Allow the paint to dry and then give it a coat of clear acrylic </p><p>medium to seal it. Place the rocks on the table to mark the place settings. </p><p>Balloon Drop </p><p>One way to make a special moment even more memorable is to plan a balloon drop. When you and </p><p>your spouse have your first kiss at the altar, or when your first dance happens, you can have net </p><p>above you release dozens of brightly coloured foil or latex balloons. </p></li><li><p>Its not as hard as you might think to create a balloon drop. You can find the netting at a landscape </p><p>supply store, as it is often used for fish ponds. Spread the net out onto the floor and fill it up with </p><p>inflated balloons. Use a weaving stitch along the short edge to make the bottom of the pocket and </p><p>then sew down the length of the netting as you fill it with the balloons. Dont tie off the farthest end </p><p>of the line, as it must be able to pull completely free. Then, flip the net and attach the unsewn side </p><p>to the ceiling, with the stitched side hanging down. When it is time, have someone pull the cord to </p><p>release the balloons and have them fall down. </p><p>Balloons Galore has a wide range of balloons, including personalised balloons that will make your big </p><p>day extra special. </p></li><li><p>Balloons Galore </p><p>15 Stanier Road </p><p>Broughton Astley </p><p>Leicestershire </p><p>LE9 6TW </p><p> </p></li></ul>
