Hey guys my name is Kelsey and my name is Becky, and we are the sorry girls and today We are back to another dollar storage challenge. And guess what? This week, it’s wedding themed. We’re doing wedding week this whole week I’m gonna pick out something. Becky is going to pick out something and we’re gonna make something Mm-hmm. inspo. need some inspo I’m thinking like centerpieces or Backdrops or something like that because those can add up and it’d be awesome to do it out of dollar store stuff These are already very wedding. Oh my god. I love this so much. What?! Like I low key Just want these for myself. These can be used for marking placeholders and stuff, if you like sawed a little line you could put a piece of paper in it. You do like pillar candles in like a Glass jar like this or the centerpiece. That’s kind of a no-brainer, but maybe it’s too obvious. My idea involves amirror and I’m not finding much mirror here I am a nervous Oh hit the jackpot! This supposed to be cotton? Oh, it’s a pussy willow I Mean the faux flower aisle obviously for wedding. Ugly location challenge part two? Yes, yas! All right, I think I got everything I need. Wasn’t much and it didn’t take long. Hi guys, so I’m gonna start this challenge, and if we didn’t say it already, it’s wedding week! We were doing a ton of wedding themed things this whole week And I think a great wedding themed video is the dollar store challenge because weddings can get so expensive so we’re gonna try and do some sweet wedding decor for much much less moneies. So my idea actually is something that I Wanted to do for my wedding, or had on my board of ideas for my wedding But didn’t get around to do it and plus It was really expensive in theory But I’m gonna do it for you today for much less. You guys might have recognized this from our video like not that long ago We made a planter stand out of this But I am actually gonna take this apart and use the rings separately and Then make a florally ring Backdrop that you can use for like a head table or like a signing table or whatever. And for the flowers I got these all from the dollar store as well. These are falling apart But that’s okay because I would take it apart anyways I liked that they had like a pinkie tint so it’s a bit Bridally And also some fake eucalyptus because I love eucalyptus It’s one of my favorite. Is it a flower? plant? Plants? In total all the supplies cost me around $11 And that’s Canadian so that’s really not that much for something like this. So, first step is cutting this apart and getting the rings out Okay, so I got them all off. You’re gonna need some strong pliers But it’s definitely doable so now I have my three rings and really you can position these any way you want I think I’m kind of gonna try and do like a in a row like Olympics style design, I have this wire that we already has the office. It’s copper wire and I’m just going to join them all together in the shape And once it’s all secured tightly I’m gonna spray-paint it all with a nice copper spray paint Next I’m using more of this copper wire and I’m going to take all the flowers and that eucalyptus and kind of arrange it nicely on here. Also, gonna use it to kind of cover up the sharp little bits from where I cut it. Okay, so the flowers on it like made a world of difference This is already so Gorge and you could like stop here if you want it to but I’m gonna add a last step So we have this scrap wood in the office that I’m gonna write Mr. And Mrs. on or Mr. Mr. , Mrs. Mrs. tailor it to you with some white paint and then I’m gonna use fishing wire so it’s invisible to kind of hang it in the middle of it of rings and That’ll be it Okay, so once the sign is done and added on it looks like this And I just added additional fishing wire to hang the whole thing up It’s really cute like I honestly would have had this at my own wedding if I had made it earlier So I’m interested to see what Kelsey makes, but I think if I did it a good one this week guys So what I picked up from the dollar store was six pieces of this mirrored glass with a beveled edge So what I’m going to do is make a seating chart, or where you can write down Everybody’s names.Eeach mirror will be like a table type thing. I’m gonna make it look like a windowpane, I think, but out of mirror.And to decorate I just picked up some eucalyptus I think Becky and I both spotted the the new eucalyptus they have, so I snagged some of those. So my first step is to use a piece of scrap MDF that we already have, cut it to the size of my new faux windowpane. Space these out here Looks pretty good if I do say so myself Simple. Cut my MDF. Nowm I’m just gonna give it a coat of white paint. I think this is a white? Is there a reason why? Because white is Bridal. Man I didn’t know that thank God Becky came in through and saved me Why is the color white Bridal? Has anybody questioned this? Because there’s lots of virgins? lol So, I have my board painted white here I just painted the edges and the middle because, why waste time and paint? So, next all I’m gonna do is take off the little feet that are on the back of these mirrors And use some construction adhesive to place them where I measured them out. So, my mirror panels are glued on no fingerprints here. So, my next step is going to be using a combination of a white paint marker and white paint to write find your seats and all of the tables and names so that people can find their table. So, I have everything written on to my mirrored planes and the best part about this is that it’s actually pretty easy to wipe paint markers and paint off of mirrors So, I could easily scratch off a name if somebody decided they didn’t want to come or somebody decided they did want to come. Or if you make the mistake because we’re all human. So, lastly, I’m gonna take my faux ecalyptus and just add it on to the edges for some style points, and then we’re done. So this is my final seating chart, I did the lines like you could fill in lines or just like write names, but I want it to look like a seating chart even though I don’t have a wedding to fill it out for right now Super happy with this. It only cost me like 15 bucks. If you did this idea on like a larger mirror or a mirror that you liked you can wipe off the paint depending on what paint you might want to test it first But that’s a good tip that if you did have a gorgeous mirror you want to use and you Tested the paint or the marker you could wipe it off and still have a perfectly good mirror again Wow good job team I feel like our stuff could very much be at the same wedding. Yes. I know the same vibe same vibe Guys how do you guys think we did?

  1. I love Becky's floral hoops! She has my vote! The seating chart was gorgeous too though! I think paint on mirrors is hard to read so I didn't use any at my wedding.

  2. The reason the seating chart didn't win in my oppion was because i feel we saw this diy already apread on the channle

  3. It's q tie for me! Both are gorg and i will absolutely copy it for future events I will be coordinating 😊😊😊. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas

  4. white for wedding was to show wealth but white weddings came into effect in 1840 by Queen Victoria and the people fell in love with it so now its been a trend on white weddings

  5. Is their name the sorry girls because theyre Canadian and it’s a stereotype that Canadians are nice and apologize for everything LOL?

  6. I love the mirror idea but realistically I think the first one is more doable for me…. Plus my dad would tell me that he can't see anything written on the mirror 😂 lol. Great ideas girls!

  7. It’s white because your suppose to wait until marriage to have sex. White is the color of purity. Back then if you had sex before marriage you would pretty much be a hypocrite if you wore white. Also really cute stuff guys!

  8. They went to the Dollar Store and THATS what they came up with?!? Nooooo!!! People- check our other Dollar Tree wedding ideas on YouTube FIRST.. this one doesn’t even compare to those.. sorry ladies

  9. … I have so many Disney fanatics in my life if I copied the first one exactly they would think I did a "hidden Mickey" at my own wedding. And also probably start hunting for more.

  10. I discovered your channel today and I’m addicted! I’m binging! Sorry, not sorry!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  11. Why didn't I find your video earlier… 🙁 I had my wedding last year and I could totally use these diy… Great ideas!

  12. White is bridal because of Queen Victoria. She set the trend with her wedding dress, before then women usually wore whatever was in their closets most likely darker and easier to clean dresses.

  13. You should try to do this with an actual dollar store where everything is a dollar not above the dollar that’s even more challenging

  14. With Memorial Day coming up, I'd love to see some DIY flowers, crosses, etc to decorate grave sites! Sounds depressing, but it's something I'd actually use!

  15. love the video, PLS PLS PLS do not cut MDF in future without a face mask, it is carcinogenic and so dangerous in dust form. keep the great vids coming.

  16. I am a design assistant for a wedding decorator and these are so sweet. I have definitely used the hoop ring flowers before.

  17. Is that Dollar store in the Us or Canada? Because there's a lot of thing i saw on the video that my local Dollar Store don't have… 😞

  18. Liked the ideas! Where is this dollar tree located? It seemed HUGE! The ones in Orlando are not that big with the variety of items seen in your video.

  19. The floral ring thing was the best the mirror thing was ugly if I’m honest. Plus at least on camera it was way hard to see what it said.

  20. They are both so cute. The 3 rings gave me Mickey mouse vibes which is not bad!!! lots of party ideas for that too!

  21. love your channel,
    White showed that the girls family had money, white cloth was expensive and it got dirty if you worked, all the girls(now brides maids) wore white too so if someone tried to steal the bride it would be confusing(yes this really happened) flowers were liberally used because that many people in one place before the invention of deodorant was needed, wedding cake was also to show wealth fruits, sugars and nuts were expensive, most of the wedding traditions of today come from old ways of showing wealth and position within the community or ways to make thing go smoothly, I love researching old ways of doing things, some of these traditions are older the the bible stories and carry the same messages, xx love you guys, don't stop with the wedding stuff, having a back garden(English) wedding next year.

  22. I was told white is bridal because queen Elizabeth the first, she wanted to be noticed in the crowd at her wedding , many followed her tradition obviously

  23. Thanks for the information!  Magnets get business name and phone number out to current or potential clients in a manner that enables you to 'stick' in their mind whenever they need your items. Magnets make this happen. Whether you make them yourself or utilize a professional they should be an important part of your advertising toolbox.

  24. What dollar tree is that?? The dollar trees where I’m from.. doesn’t have none of that and it’s messy 😣
