Saying I Do {Bridal Shower #2}

By now if you have read my blog long enough you know both of my sons are getting married this year within 3 weeks of one another! I had hosted shower number 1 for wedding number 1 and now it was time for shower number 2 for wedding number 2.

Each of my soon to be daughter-n-laws are as different as my 2 sons. I wanted each bride to feel special as I created parties which complimented each of them. {You can see shower #1 here!}

One of the few things I kept similar for the girls was a sign announcing their shower and a cute chalkboard telling how many days until they are the new Mrs. Hersey from Hobby Lobby! {Each girl loved these!}

As usual I searched Pinterest for some great ideas and then I just took them my own route. The theme for this shower was to wear your wildest shoes!

One of the crafts I did for this shower was to spray paint a wine bottle with Krylon chalkboard paint.

This was a very easy project to do with great wow factor as the centerpiece of my table!

1) I removed the label from a large wine bottle and cleaned it well with soap and water and let dry.

2) I sprayed the bottle with the Krylon Chalk Board paint and allowed to dry.

According to Krylon’s website this paint:

  • Creates a tough, slate-like chalkboard surface
  • Easy application
  • Durable, long-lasting finish
Dry to Touch
15 minutes
Dry to Handle
Fully dry 3 hours
For use with
Wood, Metal, Glass, Plaster, Ceramic, Paper, Paper Mache.

3) After allowing to dry for 24 hours I wrote words about marriage like “I do” “Trevor & Brandy” “June 14, 2013” “Love” “Till death do us part” etc on the bottle with chalk and then topped it off with colorful feathers and a stripped flower all from Hobby Lobby.
