We are so excited to feature this week's DIY inspiration. Adorable winter scene wedding favors. So easy to put together and super cute (don't you think?). Great for any winter wedding tablescape whether you are going for a traditional look or a more rustic look. The best part is your guests will love displaying them in their homes afterwards. Get the how-to below.
- Cedar Branches (or other faux branches)
- Mini Pine Cones
- Fake Snow
- Scissors or Wire Cutters
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Glass Glue (not shown)
Cut off small sections of your cedar branches (we found our craft supplies at Save-on-Crafts). Arrange them to your liking so that some stand upright and others fan out. Pay close attention that the cuttings fit inside your glass holder (more info on that later). Your cuttings should begin to form the support for holding your love birds. Add a bit off hot glue between the cedar cuttings to hold the branches together. Allow to dry.
Next, arrange your two love birds so they are nested in your cedar setting. Once you are happy with your arrangement, glue the birds down. Voila! Next up, fill in any holes or areas that need sprucing with your mini pine cones. Secure with hot glue. We placed one front and center because they were too adorable to pass up.
Now...before adding your snow, make sure that your scene fits inside your holder. Test by putting the lid on. Trim any excess cedar branches if needed. Once everything is to your liking, finish off your winter scene with a good sprinkling of fake snow.
For assembly, add a dab of hot glue to the bottom of your love bird setting and secure to the base of your holder. We added extra fake snow to our holder for good measure. Before adding the glass top, run some Loctite glass glue around the rim, so your snow scene will be forever preserved. (This will also help guests with transporting their favors home. Super important to consider).
