We are celebrating the best day of the week with Michelle from The Whole EnCHELLEada. If you haven't been hiding under a rock, then you know that Ms. Michelle is about to become Mrs. L in a few short months! Thank goodness that we all didn't have Pinterest when we planned so let's enjoy the process with the future Mrs. L!
Pinterest has revolutionized wedding planning. Yep, that's a bold statement but it's true. Over the past few months I've been pinning away, collecting ideas for all of our wedding details. With a little over four months to go, it really is time to stop pinning and start doing. I used this month's Pinterest-a-thon as an opportunity to get started.
For the last year or so we've collected wine corks to use someday, and today is that lucky day! I followed this tutorial from Tip Junkie. The instructions are pretty basic, as is the entire project. I decided to go with an ombre look (so hot right now!) with the corks. I also worked hard to make sure the Charles Shaw corks were mainly in the center. We're not ashamed of Chuck, just didn't want him to dominate our L. Speaking of that L, the craziest part of this project was making an "L" and realizing that I am getting married and changing my last name. Sometimes I forget that part because I'm too busy mentally decorating the mantels.
Using the remainder of the corks I made a heart. I set all the corks out first to decide how to make it, using the pin as my guide. My suggestion is start at the bottom point and work your way up! I absolutely love the outcome of this and it only took about 20 minutes to make.
