And here's how I made them:
one. I bought some mini apple crates at Michael's for a buck each.
two. The crates were not a very pretty color. They were just plain wood so I stained them to make them more rustic.
three. I painted the numbers and a different variety of apple onto each crate with plain old acrylic paint.
four. I threw in some fake fall leaves (also purchased at Michael's and originally in the form of a fall garland. I just ripped off the leaves) and some apples on top of the leaves.
My original plan for my wedding was to use real apples for everything and donate them to a soup kitchen after the wedding. However, this would have meant buying a loooottttt of apples really close to my wedding and it would have probably cost a pretty penny.
I lucked out and found some fake apples, on clearance at the Christmas Tree Shop.
Who would have thought?
So that's it. They were pretty simple and they added a nice touch to my fall, apple themed wedding.
Man, writing all of this really makes me miss the wedding planning process. Not all the small, obnoxious details but definitely all the DIY stuff.
Anyone want me to do some DIY for their wedding? ;)
Happy Saturday everyone!
