Bells are Ringing, Leaves are Falling

Wedding bells are ringing...the leaves are falling...
Ok ok ok- SORRY!
I know summer is still barely hanging on, but fall is approaching! And with that comes fall weddings!
There is something just so fun about weddings in the fall. The crisp cool air, the beautiful colors, apple cider, and the list goes on.

I was commissioned to make the favors for a wedding this October by a really fun couple, Gaelyn & Gif. What makes them fun? Besides both having They are avid rock climbers: http://rockclimberlife.com/, health and nutrition gurus, and earth lovers, both of them being "green" engineers.

Anywho- their wedding is in October and wonderfully fall themed. They came to me wanting favors, that double as something "green" as well as the table place cards. After much brainstorming, sketching and talking, the idea for wire leaf ornaments came to be.

Whats green about wire leaves you ask? Well, nothing really. They are all handmade by me and OOAK (one of a kind). The green part: The tag that helps you remember their joyous wedding day G^2 ; 10-6-12.



Pop cans- soda pop cans - aluminium cans. Whatever you call them- we love the fizzy stuff! But the cans leftover...hmpf. Of course they always get recycled, but I decided to use them up-cycled for the ornaments!



Happy weddding-ing!
