DIY Wedding

It finally happened! My wedding finally came to fruition after so much planning. Here is a link to my wedding pics if you're curious!

 There were so many parts of this wedding that were D.I.Y. that I'm not sure where to even start. I knew right away that I wanted to incorporate this amazing sequin wall that I found on this tutorial:

I fell in love with it and knew I had to have it. Here is the finished product:

It came out great!! Here is the process I went through. All in all it took about 2 weekends to finish, the longest part was waiting for the packages to arrive to build it.
 The sequins have arrived!
  Here are my foam core boards that I got from my local art shop. They were both 42"x80".
Giant sequins.
Getting them wrapped in gold wrapping paper.
Making my guide.
Measuring out where to put the pins.
After testing a few rows to make sure the sequins lined up, I started a movie and zoned out.
Almost finished with the first one.
So many pins!!
Looking good and lining up well!
Testing out patches to make sure everything lines up.
All done and time for fun!

The final result!! Not exactly sure if I would do it again, but I love the way it came out. One problem I did run into though was that the tutorial called for 600 sequins, and although that sounds like a lot, I still needed more just FYI. Happy crafting!! :)
