Metallics have been a fixture at weddings over the past year and with all the creative ways stylists are finding to use them to add a touch of class to weddings - we can see them going anywhere soon! Make a chic decor statement by making gold, silver or copper a dominant aspect of your theme or add a little dose of glam with a touch or metallic ornamentation here and there.
Do-it-yourself brides can revel in the wonders that can be done with a can of metallic spray paint and a crafternoon! You'd be surprised at how easily items can be transformed into wedding-worthy trimmings! We've picked a few of our favourite quick and easy metallic DIY projects from the blog, Modern Wedding DIY Magazine and online to inspire you!
ONE: HANGING HIMMELI PENDANTS
Himmeli pendants are Christmas ornaments from Finland usually made from straw. Stylists used brass tubing sprayed gold to make these pendants which finished off a 'geo-inspired' look. See the full look on page 92 of Modern Wedding DIY magazine!
TWO: WINE GLASSES
Spruce up old wine glasses sitting deep in your cupboards or head to your local op-shop by shimmering up the stems! Learn how on page 108 in the new Modern Wedding DIY Magazine!
THREE: FAUX FRUIT
Faux-fruit doesn't have to be relegated to a dusty old fruit basket. Give it new life by presenting it a little differently. A golden piece of fruit is a perfect decorative item to enhance a place setting. Find our how-to for this piece here!
Metallic coloured branches care a beautiful alternative to a candelabra. We love the organic and interesting shapes contrasted with sleek gold. For added glamour, hand glass beads or crystal decor off the centrepiece.
