• {DIY} Personalized S’mores Sticks

    Welcome to our second real wedding DIY feature!  I’m loving this feature so much, aren’t you?  If you’re doing a DIY project for your wedding, or did one already, and you have at least one photo of the finished product and would like to see it featured here on Oh Lovely Day, email it to me with the “DIY Submission” in the subject line, with the photo or photos, a full list of materials needed, and instructions, and it may be featured!

    Ok, so on to today’s DIY.  This is only the first of two DIY projects I’ll be featuring from the fabulous rustic ranch wedding I shared earlier this week.  I know I said it before, but this is one of my favorite weddings EVAAAARRRR!  Did I stress that enough?  And today’s DIY is so simple, yet such a perfect touch to add to your wedding.  It is brilliant I tell you!  So many thanks to Brittany for this one!

    {Personalized S’mores Sticks DIY}

    Materials Needed:

    Steel Wire Sticks (sold in approx 7 feet sticks)
    Bamboo (or any kind of wood that conveniently has a hole in it)

    Bendable gage wire sold in a spool

    Hot Glue Gun/Sticks


    Time Needed for DIY:
    Cut, slide and glue : Approx 3 minutes (glue must be dry before moving on to design)
    Bending design : Approx 5-7 minutes each
    Overall time: approx 10 minutes each

    Instructions:
    1.  If needed, cut steel sticks in approx 2.5 feet lengths. 
    2.  Line up hole in bamboo to one edge of stick and slide through until steel and wood line up. 
    3.  Generously hot glue the tip to secure  handle wood piece to steel poker. 
    4.  Depended on your design, cut bendable wire gage about 1.5 feet long. 
    5.  About 1 inch from bottom of handle begin wrapping wire around in upward spiral at least two or    
         three times. 
    6.  Start forming your wire to bend into your idea! We did hearts, M’s for our last name, and B+R for our 
         initials. 
    7.  We made about 30 for our 120 guests. We placed them in a tall bucket to display next to the fire.    
         They were a hit! :)

    Are these not genius!?  I mean, what a creative and personal touch to add to the plain ole s’more sticks at your wedding!  THIS is the perfect example of how to make your wedding YOU and add personal details and elements.  These didn’t take much time and they didn’t cost much money to make, but they added a HUGE personal touch.  Will someone puhleeze do this at their wedding?  

    Big thanks again to Brittany for sharing this DIY with us (and to her bridesmaids for helping her make them) and to JL Photographers for the fantastic photos.  And stay tuned, because Brittany’s husband Rob is going to share a DIY with us from their wedding soon too!

      I’m sorry I’m not familiar with s’more sticks.
      What are they for? What do you do with them?
      I don’t get the idea just from reading & looking at the pictures.. ?
      Could someone please explain it to me? That would be awesome!)
      :o

      Where did you find the materials for these? I googled steel wire sticks to no avail! I’ve also never had the pleasure of buying bamboo…any tips??

       Ended our day with these two in the ocean, in their clothes. It was a good day.
