• {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!)
      😮

       The earthquake and the avalanche aftermath have hit Nepal and surrounding areas with tragedy more than we could ever imagine. The latest update is that over 4,000 have been killed by this devastating tragedy and thousands remain missing. The sweet ladies behind @utterlyengaged and @ever_ours have created @fornepalwithlove, just as they did for Japan and the Philippines to raise money for Nepal. With the death toll rising every hour and the area not equipped with the essentials they need, they have chosen @ShelterBox as their go-to organization. ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. Each large green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. One box helps one family and we're hoping to raise enough for 5 boxes to help 5 families. Please help with whatever you can. I encourage you to follow @fornepalwithlove and feel free to regram and repost this image to spread the word. And donate at http://www.fornepalwithlove.com -- every little bit helps! I'll be donating what I can and I will also donate 10% of any new sponsored posts or ad buys starting today for the next month. #fornepalwithlove ❤️
       Walking to the car this morning on our way to school Charlie saw a bird flying by and said "look momma, a bird! It was making a beautiful noise." I said "yes buddy, that is the bird singing." He said "that was a beautiful sound. But you know what is even more beautiful?" Me: "no buddy, what?" Charlie: "you!"  This kid is smoooooth I tell ya. Totally works too. #stuffmycharliesays #charlesdashiell  by @punambean
