I'm Jenna Lee with Splurge Events, and today I'm going to show you how to create a wedding shower centerpiece. The materials you will need are doll sticks, card stock paper, pinking shears, a stamping pad with alphabet stamps, ric-rac ribbon trim, a glue gun, pain stir sticks painted in all different colors with scrabble letters, soda bottles, baker's twine, clear glass footed and pompom trim. So you take your card stock paper and fold it over to the size that you want to cut your triangles. With your pinking shears, you'll cut to the edge of your fold and make your triangles. Once you have enough triangles, you'll take your stamps and your stamping pad and using even pressure you stamp the letters that you're wanting. Once you have all the letters that you need, you'll take your ribbon, you'll add some glue and then you'll apply your letters, like that. When your letters are all applied, you take your doll sticks, put them into your soda bottles and you'll just simply tie one edge of your ribbon onto the doll stick and then tie the other edge of your ribbon onto the other doll stick. And then when you pull that tight, you'll be able to read your message or the initials of the couple. And then you can also cut larger triangles for trivia questions to place on the table with your other items and it makes a great conversation piece. To make the name place cards, you take your pain stir stick for the next stop and then you take your scrabble letters. Spell out what you want to spell and you take your glue gun and you add a little bit of glue and then just place your letters. And once you have all of your letters placed, you can take some of your baker's twine and just wrap it around the edge for another fun effect and you just tie it off and cut it when you're finished. So in the end it might look something like this. And then take your glass footed; you'll run some hot glue around the outside of the glass footed and then you take your pompom trim and you just attach it along the outside of the candle. So when it's finished, it looks something like this. And when you put it altogether, it looks something like this. I'm Jenna Lee with Splurge Events, and I just showed you how to create a wedding shower centerpiece.
