Currently Loving {DIY} Thursday Link Up

With the summer in full swing and romance in the air, it's very easy to get carried away with all the gorgeous weddings. I have planned and attended a few wedding in last number of years and loved every minute of it. There is just something so fresh and breathtaking about seeing a newly married couple, full of life, love and dreams. It always puts me in a fun, romantic mood and makes me want to whisk my hubby on a getaway. 

This year I have the privilege to plan and help decorate my cousin's wedding, who's getting married overseas. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the wedding itself but I have been gathering supplies, spray painting everything in sight and stalking Pinterest for ideas. Everything is very expensive in the part of country my dearest cousin lives in, so even with shipping, it's cheaper to buy stuff here and send it over. Plus it's fun for me! 

The bride is one of the sweetest people in the world, and I'm so glad I get the opportunity to plan the funnest and prettiest wedding I can. She gave me the full freedom in creating a look that will be budget-friendly yet chic. The wedding itself is in the fall so the colors needed to be appropriate for the season and here is what we came up with. 

Today I'm sharing with you a tried and true method to create a desired look on a budget. A no-brainer DIY for people who are planning weddings, showers or any other celebrations. Part of the decor is gold accents and those can add up to a pretty penny. I went to the thrift store and found as many matching martini glasses as I could find, then spray painted them gold. 

You will need:Glassware
Spray paint
Plenty of paper to cover the work surface

First I taped off the button half of the glass with tiny pieces of painter's tape.

Then I covered the rest of the glass with paper, exposing only the part that needs to be sprayed

Spray and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. I was doing this on a very hot day so they were dry in a matter of seconds.

I put them out on the sun once finished to dry. 

And there you go! Cheap and easy way to creative pretty decorations for any party!
