I’m all about creating thoughtful little details that make a wedding day ultra special… like these personalized clay bouquet charms! If you’ve ever been in a wedding (especially a large one) – you know how crazy it can get with bridesmaids setting down their bouquets and forgetting whose is whose. Now sometimes it might not matter, but what if each bridesmaids bouquet was specifically meant for their mismatched colored dress or what if the bride wanted an ombre flower look? Figuring out what bouquet belongs to what girl can get confusing, but not if you make your bridesmaids these darling initial charms! Quick, easy and totally inexpensive – you can have these done and ready in under an hour. Sure to charm your bridesmaids and your photographer!

Start by warming up the clay in your hands and then rolling it to about 1/4″ thick, large enough for your circle cookie cutter. This Premo Sculpey clay is so easy to work with and comes in SO many beautiful colors.

Now stamp the initials into each clay charm with alphabet rubber stamps. Any kind will do but I love these from Prima Press because you can align and stamp multiple letters at once.

To add a little embellishment, I simply poked holes around the circle with a toothpick.
