For Robin’s wedding.
No traditional silly little archway for this special bride! Suspended behind the minister and the wedding couple on yellow ribbon, framing their love vows, will be an 8′ x 6′ giant frame (a 2-foot frame profile). It is all to create that picture-perfect day!
I am madly embellishing it today (yes, with paper mache made of laundry starch, glue, white paint and flour and a few rolls of paper towels) and silk flowers and odds and ends. Truly, if I’d known how easy paper mache embellishing was going to be, I’d have by-passed the silks. I was afraid I couldn’t do enough to fill up the 2-foot width of the frame profile, but you can see, it is easy! Tomorrow, we will paint everything white white white (though we once toyed with the mimosa-yellow as a wow-factor) and hopefully, in some theatrical way, it will look like an ornate, old, carved frame.
Must haves: lace to add texture, corsage pins for extra stick-strength, Aelene’s Tacky Glue, no worry about the mess in the house, a good hot-glue gun and no fear! Have paper towels, will travel!
Little known fact: you cannot use spray paint on foam-based structures – it will melt the foam. Trust me and my foam-expert friend, Pearly-Q.
