Simple Sunday - Snowflake Wedding Favours!

So I'm back, and my, has it been a while!
Wedding prep has been keeping me very, very busy. (Not to mention the whole 2 kids, 4 dogs and a new caravan, but that's for another post!

Speaking of weddings, I thought I'd do a wee post about my favours,

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted a snowflake wedding. I always imagined delicate little snowflake favours to hang on a tree, in a window, whatever.
Mainly the tree, as I am Christmas Tree OBSESSED, but once again, that's for another post!

So, when me and Barry decided we were getting married, off I went to search for the perfect wedding favours.
And so I searched.
And searched.
And searched some more.
I found some gorgeous pieces. I found snowflakes that sparkled, snowflakes that spun, 3D snowflakes.

Beautiful. All so beautiful.
But none were quite right. 
So, I had a wee brainstorm, and because I'm an idiot and decided I didn't already have enough to do, I had the 'genius' idea that I';d make them myself.

They wire shape is crafted, and then they are threaded with over 250 individual glass beads, by hand. By myself. 
Let's repeat that.
Per. Snowflake.

So here I am, with less than 8 weeks to go before our wedding, and I haven't quite finished them all yet.


I have found something that I really, really love doing.
(Even if I do find myself muttering expletives when a wire snaps)

I will continue to make them. For as long as I can.

My initial wedding decor was going to be darker shades of teal (blog post here), but in the end I went for ice blues and crystal shades in crackle glass beads, and I am so glad I did. 
My wedding snowflakes are shades of blue, white and silver, and I LOVE them.

I have however, since branched into other colours, which I'll discuss more in depth in a later post.

SO for now, here's some pictures, of my crafty craftiness.
They are my own design, and I am extremely proud of them. They're just what I imagined, and I just hope that my guests love them as much as I do!
