1. bridesmaids hair accessories (made with a mixture of millinery supplies, silk flowers, vintage salvaged jewelry)
2. ribbon dowels
I used the ribbon dowels to accentuate the ceremony walk way. After the ceremony we used them in our bridal party photos. I think it adds a lot of quirk and fun to it. The great thing about making your own decorations are the prices. The dowels alone were probably about $1 per, after buying the ribbons and dowels (home depot). The hair accessories ended up being about $10-15 each.
