Crafty Beggars, Wendy Turner Webster and Julie Peasgood, want to show you how easy it is to craft your own DIY wedding. Each Crafty Beggar has handcrafted their very own wedding project that promises to be a showstopper on your big day. So, what have they got for us?
“When the lovely Loen and I did a show together we had quite an array of items to get through, from embossing powders and fabric papers to decoupage papers and spring flowers. I have come to realise that when you’re a Create and Craft Ambassador, there is never a dull moment!” – Wendy Turner Webster of the Crafty Beggars
Wendy Turner Webster, of the Crafty Beggars, is renowned for her ability to reuse and upcycle old items found in the home. With the motto ‘Don’t bin it!’, she transforms old pieces of furniture, packaging, and accessories into something beautiful. That’s why we gave Wendy a challenge. We asked her to jazz up 10 old glass jars for practical and decorative use.
“When I first used coloured foils with some double-sided adhesive transfers, I actually gave a little yelp of delight when I saw the result! (Now you know what passes for entertainment in the Turner Webster household!). Joking aside, what I love about working with foils is the stunningly super-shiny results – it’s as simple as that. You can use a lot of foils to create a real wow factor or just a few bits here and there for highlighting purposes. Whatever way you choose to use them, the results will always be attention-grabbing.” – Wendy Turner Webster
