Recently, I attended a wedding shower for the lovely lady who is marrying one of Mr. G’s brothers. I love the girl and it’s awesome that Mr. G’s family keeps growing and giving me more people to enjoy!
My MIL and SIL were two of the shower hosts, and when they mentioned they were in charge of centerpieces as well as some other things, I quickly volunteered to take over the centerpieces. It worked out great because 1) I live for craft projects and 2) it gave my SIL more time to concentrate on the oodles of delicious cupcakes she was baking for the shower.
There were no colors picked for the shower, but it was loosely Disney themed (because the two got engaged at Disney World), so I picked up that theme and ran with it.
I was up for anything, but my main goal was something I could make or make pieces of beforehand because I would need 10 of these to travel up to my in-laws with me, and then on to the shower from there.
I was inspired by this image from Etsy. It’s clearly for a birthday party, but it gave me a good jumping off point. (All of the following are personal photos unless otherwise noted.)
After that, I turned to Adobe Illustrator to create the pieces I knew I’d need. I knew I wanted a Mickey head with the happy couple’s name cut out of it. I planned to cut it out using the SCAL software and my Cricut. Unfortunately, I have a smaller Cricut that can only cut up to the size 6″x12″, but I remedied that by cutting the Mickey ears out separately from the rest of the head.
