DIY wedding flower arrangement flags

This week has been really wedding heavy!  Whew, lots of wedding details to do, lots of them done already... here's another little project I put together for reception decor!

I wanted to incorporate more funky homespun details, and I loved these flower arrangements at a vintage-ey 60's wedding on Ruffled:

So I took more of my fabric scraps (many left over from the triangle bunting!) and turned them into little flags glued onto skewers!!

They're also similar to these garden flags from this tutorial on Design*Sponge, except they're not waterproof and they're double-sided.

Anyway.  Just another homemade touch for our wedding!  Where could I use these, aside from in flower arrangements?

(If you did any DIYs for your wedding or the wedding of a friend or loved one, I'd love for you to share them in the Adventures in Dressmaking DIY Weddings Flickr group!!)

P.S.  Here's how they looked at the wedding! 


  1. Awesome! I love them, you could make tiny, pretty drink stirers as well! I LOVE everything you are doing for your wedding.

  2. Boutiniers! (totally spelled wrong) you could use mini versions or just the large version as the back peice. That would be so cool!

  3. stick a couple in your bouquet!

  4. If you're doing any kind of "signature drink" you could put them in like stir sticks.

  5. Line the aisle with them if you're ceremony will be outside!

  6. those are so cute! lots of good ideas already, so i can't think of any others! i added some of my wedding photos to the flickr group yesterday!

  7. Could you use a few in your h'orderves at the reception?
