Diy Tutorial - Bride & Groom Pegs

For all the creative brides out there, how cute are these little DIY bride and groom pegs? Perfect as wedding favours, table decorations, name card holders, a cake topper or even pegged onto your champagne glasses, I bet your all wondering how do I make these. Well look no further!

For the small price of £13.68, you could make 50 of these lovely little handmade bride and groom pegs and here’s how…

 

What You’ll Need

DIY Tutorial - Bride and Groom Pegs - What You'll Need

To start this creative project you will need –

  • Plain wooden pegs (we picked up 50 pegs for 99p in the local 99p store)
  • Paints and a paintbrush (watercolours work well, alternatively you could use acrylics)
  • 1m of white lace
  • All purpose craft glue (pritt sticks just don’t work)
  • Pretty bows (optional)

 

Step One

Take a plain wooden clothes peg and turn it upside down so the jaws of the peg are at the top (we don’t want you to paint the wrong end)!

Paint one side of the peg black for your groom’s suit and the other white for your brides dress (make sure you leave a space at the top of the peg for their neck and head).

 

Step Two

Using a small paintbrush, paint on the bride’s hair in the colour and style of your choice and add facial features such as bright pink lips and eyes (we would recommend drawing the eyes on with a black ball point pen, as using a paintbrush can leave the bride and groom looking like pandas depending on how steady your hand is!)

 

Step Three

Cut out a small long triangle shape out of your white lace (like the one shown in the picture.) Make sure the triangle is around the same width as the side of the peg and the length of around 1/2 of the peg. This will be the bride’s veil.

 

Step Four

Put a small amount of craft glue onto the top half of the lace triangle and starting at the very top of the brides head (where her head touches the grooms), carefully glue down your lace veil, leaving the bottom half to come away from the brides neck.

 

Step Five

Next, using your white lace, cut out a larger triangle, this will be used as the brides skirt and train.

This triangle should be around the same length as the peg and around 3x the width of the peg depending on how long and wide you want your brides train.

 

Step Six

Just like the smaller triangle, put craft glue on the top half of your larger lace triangle and glue to the peg around half way down (where you think the skirt should start). Glue down any bits which have folded round the side of the bride and you should be left with a lovely train.
