Wedding DIYs: Lifesize Letters


These letters held court at our reception. They were spun out of fear of an empty corner and ended up being the perfect photo op with St. Louis city lights twinkling in the background. 

They're made out of cardboard boxes, packing tape, and white paper. I got the idea from ever trusted Pinterest. I found this picture and it just spoke to me. 

I had also found a lot of paper flowers online that I wanted to incorporate-- but mostly this one was 'the inspiration'.

Thus- a plan was hatched. For a multitude of wedding projects, I invested in a cricut. It really ended up paying for itself. I used a cricut template to cut out about 100 paper flower pieces. I had a lot of willing, kind, generous friends that helped me put them all together.

Flower assembly was. a. process.

With the paper flowers put together, I was still missing the letters. My sister put together the outlines of P&C and then I spent about 8 hours building cardboard walls, wrapping cardboard, and then gluing the flowers in place. 

Adding some scale to the project.

The night of the wedding- they really served as the perfect backdrop.
