Rustic Wedding Escort Cards

Afloral.com partnered up crafts blogger Ash and Crafts to bring this charming DIY to life.  Rustic weddings are everywhere, set yours apart with handmade escort cards featuring rustic wood tags and faux succulents from Afloral.com.  Follow these easy steps for a unique wedding decoration.

Feature1)  Gather your supplies.  Ash and Crafts used wood tags, small faux succulents, swirl card holders, Mod Podge, sponge brushes, a glue gun and hot glue, wire cutters, and a laser printer. 1Supplies1 2) Print the names of your guests on a laser printer.  Print a mirrored copy of your image/text because it will flipped once you transfer it.  Your printer option might say “mirrored” or “flip horizontally”. 3 3) With the printed text facing up, use your foam brush to apply a generous layer of Mod Podge over the printed area. 45 4) Flip the printed paper over and apply it the wood slice. Use your fingers or  a credit card to get rid of any air bubbles. Allow this to dry for about 1 hour. 6 5) Soak a paper towel or sponge in some water and pat it against the paper. Then keep rubbing the paper until it is soaked with water and begins to rub off. You’ll find that the paper will disintegrate but leave behind the printed areas. To avoid rubbing off the printed text, do not rub too hard once most of the paper is gone. Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 11.25.05 AM 1 6) Once you have rubbed off all the paper, allow the wood slice to dry. Once dried, you can seal the text by painting a thin layer of Mod Podge.

7) Clip the stem off the small succulent.  After the seal has dried, use a hot glue gun to attach a mini succulent to the corner of the wood slice. 827Visit Ash and Crafts for another faux succulent escort card DIY and for more rustic DIY wedding ideas visit Afloral.com.

{Savannah’s Request}
I’m planning a fall wedding for 2014 and my colors are ivory/champagne. I plan on having touches of burlap (table runners & favor bags only), lace & raffia wrapped mason jars to hold the centerpieces and for lighting (floating candles), and decorated grapevine wreaths. Even a grapevine monogram topper for our cake, but I’m still having issues choose flowers. I need some suggestions please. Thanks.

My dress is champagne and ivory, my girls are wearing brown. I like the idea of accenting with green and pink. I am trying to figure out what to do for flower arraignments and the centerpieces. We are planning on a fall wedding next September at a golf course. I would appreciate your help! Thanks!
