This morning we have a lovely little preview for you from the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings – my absolute fav! I have been incredibly fortunate to have not one, not two, not three, but four of my tutorials shared on the Martha Stewart Weddings website recently and so I wanted to return the favor and share my favorite article with you. I’m sure like me, you’ll dye over the unique ideas below…
While browsing the issue, I was instantly drawn to this feature on the versatility of canvas. It has an ultra strong weave with a neutral presence and there are endless ways to manipulate it into beauty, as the talented David Stark shows us.
I’m completely obsessed with this idea! Display favors like these amazing candlesticks from CreativeCandles.com in a simple canvas paintbrush caddy. Get the “light your way to the soiree” stencil here.
Here we have beautiful handmade canvas flowers adorning a canvas inspired cake and monogramed vow notebooks with slipcovers made of canvas. The table cloth is linen and was dip-dyed. Click here to learn how to make the flowers.
“Canvas can be made from linen, hemp or cotton, which offers a broad range of weights and beautiful textures.” – David Stark. Below a linen ribbon was monogrammed to create a lovely bouquet wrap.
Aren’t these candle holder slip covers to-dye for? I think so and I’m totally going to make them… oh Martha, what will you think of next?
You will find this article and much more in the stunning new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, on stands now. If you are more of a digital bride, they have an iPad version too that’s unbelievable, and a steal at only $8.
