Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer
This DIY is one that’s been a work in progress for quite some time but I’m very excited to share it with you. I’ve seen so many wonderful and creative ways to showcase a bit of your wedding day forever and I’m here to show you how I’m displaying this treasured memory. This bouquet shadowbox DIY turned how better than I could’ve hoped for! I’m in love with the result and eager to get this on my gallery wall. If you haven’t seen My Gallery Wall post yet, click the link here to take a peek! Without further ado, let’s get into this!
Supplies You’ll Need :
Shadowbox of desired size
Wedding Décor (champagne cork, small table décor, piece of lace from your dress)
How To :
It’s going to pain you and you’ll hate every second of it, but you need to pick apart the flowers in your bouquet. Hang your selected flowers upside down in a well ventilated dark place to dry out. Leave them for a week or so to be sure they dry completely.
Cut and glue your decorative paper to the size of the background of your shadowbox (depends on which size you choose). I find that a simple Elmer’s glue stick works best for this so that you don’t get any bumps or perforations in your background.
Start placing your flowers on the paper and arrange them to your desired look. Don’t glue anything until you’ve decided on the perfect placement!
Once you’ve decided on flower placement, figure out your placement of your pictures and other various wedding décor. Once you have decided on placement, it’s time to glue!
I glued my picture down first, since it was on the bottom, and my Elmer’s glue stick came in handy for this again. Next, I took my Gorilla Glue and started gluing down my flowers and décor.
I left it overnight to dry and settle; then, I reassembled the shadowbox and voila!
Gorgeous shadowbox containing so many wonderful memories. I’m beyond thrilled to finally have this done so I can reminisce about that day every time I see it. Comment below and let me know how you preserved or want to preserve your wedding bouquet!
