I looove crafting! I can seriously search Pinterest for hours and hours just looking at different DIYs. I think that is one of the things I was most excited about when it comes to wedding planning…all of the crafting! Being a dedicated Pintrester, I found these little seashell messages while scrolling away one day. Let me tell ya, though, they were so simple to make! You really don’t have to be an experienced crafter. Just like when I asked my maids of honor to join us on our wedding day, I wanted a creative way to ask, “Will you be my bridesmaid?” that was also in the beach theme of our wedding.
I found these seashells in the closet of my room at my parents’ house—don’t ask me why they were still in there. I think they were from some tropical party we had when I was younger? Not sure on that one, but you can find similar shells at Michaels or Jo-Ann Fabric. I really didn’t like using real shells, but since I already had them in my closet for the past 10 years, I thought it would be good to use them up…it wouldn’t do any good throwing them back in the ocean now. But on a side note: Since I am very ocean conscious, our wedding will not have dead starfish and sea creatures all over everything. Not what I’m about.
Supplies you will need:
- construction paper
- twine, hemp, or string
