OK, OK, OK…. I promise after today I will stop talking about wedding stuff and Chicago. But give me one more day. You won’t regret it.
If you want to see the most amazing wedding craft ever, keep reading :)
I wanted to make my sister something for her wedding and was totally inspired to make her bride and groom figurines after trolling craftgawker one day. I saw these adorable wedding cake toppers on Crafts Unleashed, and although they did s’mores and no cake, I knew I had to make them.
To make these figurines you need to buy little wooden body forms at a craft store.
Hobby Lobby only had men figures, so I just used that and they turned out great. Take your time and carefully paint each figurine. Seriously, this takes so much patience. And a tiny paint brush. But mostly patience.
I painted the dress and white part of the tux first, then layered on the darker colors. I did the hair last so I could continuously grab the little head to paint the body. I let the body dry before moving onto the hair.
When I was done painting everything, which took a couple of hours, I added a veil using leftover tulle from my neighbor’s wedding veil.
A small dab of hot glue and some careful placement — my bride doll had a veil!
I ended up giving these to Allie early, so she put them at her and Stan’s spot at their wedding :)
So stinking cute :) I wish I had made a set for the hubby and I for our wedding.
