Rustic, nature-inspired weddings are quickly gaining popularity, and why not? They’re fun and give you all the fabulous-ness of a more formal wedding without all the fuss. A rustic theme is the perfect complement for an outdoor ceremony, especially for couples who enjoy hiking, camping, or just spending time outside, and these handmade wine cork frames are a great way to emphasize your theme throughout your big day.
While burlap has quickly become the go-to décor for rustic weddings, there are some fun alternatives. Wine corks, for example, are also a great way to accent a natural color scheme. Plus, nothing says the great outdoors like a beautiful vineyard!

Before we get started, don’t worry: there’s no sewing involved in this project and there aren’t any tricky patterns to follow. These no-sew beaded tulle picks can easily replace (or supplement) the flowers in your bouquets, your boutonnieres, and even your corsages. And because they’re so lightweight, you can even make a few extra to decorate your cake or incorporate into your veil. All you need is some tulle, some beads, and a little bit of a patience.
Note: Make sure your wire is thin enough to fit through your beads. Some large-gauged wire is too thick to fit through small seed beads.
