If you have picked a certain theme, like I have, you will notice that it can get difficult and expensive to find exactly what you are envisioning in your mind.
Etsy is a great resource for brides with an unlimited budget, but this bride likes to find a good deal. Omaha has several Hobby Lobby stores — and in my mind it should be called “Hobby Heaven,” where as Mr. Behavin has a completely different name for it. This has been my “go to” spot for all things wedding, such as colored sand and glassware for the sand ceremony, tulle for the flower girl’s dress, burlap, twine, ribbon, garter, paper, kraft paper gift bags and a card box
One thing I could never find was a knife set for cutting the cake. That’s when it I realized I could just make something to fit the theme. So I went back to “Hobby Heaven” and found a set that could be altered. It must have been my lucky day, because the whole wedding aisle was on sale! I ended up getting a set for only $7.50.
I wrapped the handles with twine, and then added a satin ribbon to make it look a bit fancier. I used hot glue to keep it all together. I have become a twine wrapping pro since I wrapped 40 wine bottles for center pieces.
