My Wedding - DIY Drink Stirrers

It feels like the whole nation has wedding fever at the moment, which is good because it's hiding the fact that I've become obsessed! Weddings are all I can think about - whether it's the Royal Wedding or my two weddings, one of which is a week tomorrow {eek!} and the next, which is on 28th May. The good news is that bar a couple of minor meltdowns on The Boy for not doing enough, we do seem to be coming along quite well. Next week is going to be the big wedding DIY day, when I'll be creating all the wedding favours and little details with my two maids of honour {good tactical choice to have two - more help!}.

One big wedding project is the DIY drink stirrers, which are much loved at American weddings. I've decided to create my own, with the help of a fab DIY tutorial care of Peach and Pearl. After much agonising on colour and style, I've decided on grey grosgrain ribbon to match my wedding invitations, and also because my lovely friend Sarah gave me some of her left-over ribbon from her wedding day. It really is the easiest project ever, and well worth the {small amount of effort}. Check out my first attempt!

P.S. I bought my wooden sticks from eBay and the best ribbon length is 5 inches. I'd recommend using grosgrain ribbon rather than shiny ribbon, because it fastens better.
