small dot of glue where you’d like the twine to start and wait a few seconds for it to become tacky. Then take your length of twine and press it into the glue, holding it tightly while you wrap the first layer of twine. Be sure to wrap the twine over the glue point to hide it and anchor it in place.
Continue wrapping the twine in parallel lines around the vase until you reach your desired width and anchor with more glue at the bottom. Then to create the diagonal pattern, start wrapping the twine in a figure 8 pattern around the jar – up on one side, down on the other. When you have the look you want, finish up with another dab of glue. Then take your piece
of ribbon or lace and secure the twine by tying it tightly around both layers. Voila! A simple but different way to use mason jars at your wedding!

Didn’t you just love the peach and sage green color story from yesterday’s post? Today we have a new DIY project for you: the adorable Mr and Mrs table runner designed by Rachel for the Farm to Table inspiration shoot. This burlap runner would be such a sweet touch to highlight the head table at a wedding, or you could even customize the runners with your new monogram or last name and use them on
all your tables.
of burlap 8 feet long by 18 inches wide (for a 6ft long table or 60” round)
Black matte decorator’s spray paint
Exacto knife and cutting board
Blue painters tape or duct tape
Use the stencil template provided and decide how big you would like the letters. For an exact replica, this will need to be printed on 11 x 18 paper on a large scale printer found in most offices or copy shops.
Cut out the stencil with your exacto knife making sure to preserve the inside bubbles of the ‘R’ and the ampersand.
Iron the burlap and lay out the stencil so that it is centered on the ‘&.’ Tape it down and carefully spray paint inside the stencil repeating three times along the length of burlap. The vintage look is achieved by a light hand with the spray paint.
Happy Monday! We’re starting off the week with a magical inspiration shoot that our own Rachel of Finch & Thistle Event Design styled for Nonpareil magazine – a beautiful magazine for brides and event professionals with lots of DIY details.
The shoot was based on a fun idea that prominent design and fashion bloggers would put together a mood board for their dream wedding. Then they would handpick the designer, photographer, florist etc to interpret that mood board. Kathleen of Twig and Thistle picked Rachel to style and design the shoot with a “Farm to Table” theme and a peach and pear color scheme. She wanted to have lots of handcrafted details and worn, rustic elements in the design. This is what Rachel came up with…
Some behind the scenes details from Rachel…”I used vintage marmalade pots found on Ebay for the two smaller centerpieces and the white metal vase came from a flea market. The Mr & Mrs runner project was inspired by the burlap runners one of my brides made this summer and the herb pot favors seemed a sweet and inexpensive take on the Farm to Table theme.
Our baker fell through at the last minute, so I improvised and cheap viagra decorated simple white cakes from Bainbridge Island’s Town & Country supermarket! Some scattered Secal pears, Black Mission figs and olive branches kept the farm feel a bit more sophisticated.”
The sage green herbs in four inch pots wrapped in burlap and lace make for a perfect wedding favor that guests can enjoy for months to come.
Love this hand printed MR & MRS table runner as much as we do? Check
back tomorrow for DIY instructions on how to recreate it!
The bridal bouquet is so soft and lovely with peach roses, Cafe au Lait dahlias dusty miller, antique hydrangea, flowering oregano and tiny white garden roses. Rachel tied it with lace and added a vintage brooch for some sparkly contrast.
These handmade mason jar lanterns are another easy DIY project that look absolutely stunning shining from the trees at dusk.
We love this pretty summer wedding from the talented Ben Blood that was recently featured over on 100 Layer Cake and we just had to share the details with you all.
Kevin and Jenny’s wedding ceremo
ny took place under a tree at Pomeroy Farm in Yacolt, WA with an outdoor reception in a field. We love that they were brave enough to skip the tent and enjoy an evening under the stars!
The couple designed their wedding logo and stationery themselves.
Jenny’s dress was by Jenny Yoo, purchased in Portland at The English Dept and the groom and groomsmen’s vests were found at various vintage stores. Their sweet polka dot ties were made by Me and Matilda.
Almost every detail of this wedding was DIY’ed by the couple themselves or a close family member. They complimented the farm feel by continuing the vintage, country look through every element of the decor – vintage books, bouquets made of wheat stalks and darling tiny felt kites as boutonnieres. Kevin’s mother made the tablecloths and pennant flags and Jenny and her sister made the bouquets and boutonnieres. Kites were hung in the ceremony tree and friends and family arrived early to help with setup.
Jenny and Kevin decided upon a new last name by combining both their names – Klinksi and
Dorn – to Klinskidorn.
We adore the handmade signs for the old fashioned lawn games. Too clever!
Flowers from the Vancouver, WA farmers market placed in vases scavenged from thrift and antique stores decorated the tables. Vintage books also added color and visual interest.
