If you have planned a wedding or have helped someone plan a wedding then you are probably familiar with the dreaded "wedding mark-up". If you aren't, it's when something costs three times the usual price because everyone knows people will pay out the a$$ for their special day. I find this phenomenon offensive and DIY is my way of fighting back! No I will not spend $200 on a bridal garter! Stand with me ladies!

It was really hard to choose an appliqué, there were so many pretty ones. Can I just put them on everything?

Make sure the lace is very stretchy, you don't want it falling down.

Voilà! Make this a little bigger and it would make a gorgeous headband. Or keep it the same size and put it on your dog, I won't judge.
