Getting married and want to DIY the perfect wedding centerpieces? This may be the perfect Cricut project for you! Michelle Edgemont of Michelle Edgemont Design teaches us to create a stunning floral arrangement with Cricut-made embellishments.

The newest wedding trend in 2021 is using dried flowers as delicate, organic accents to your décor. Whether in their natural colors, or dyed shades of pink, teal, and purple, using dried flowers means that you can make your own wedding centerpieces months in advance. I love saving time and money where I can!

First, a bit about the unique florals within our arrangement. These wedding centerpieces are a mix of bleached dyed rustic, dyed bunny tails, bleached lemon leaf, yellow billy balls, and dyed seed pods. Pro tip: choose dried flowers in a variety of textures for your arrangement to add intrigue and dimension.

In the display used for today’s project, I have flowers that are tall and skinny, flowers that are fluffy, and a few that are voluminous and wide. The color palette should include a few primary neutrals and a pop of bold color. For this arrangement, I included white, baby pink, and lilac florals, with pops of yellow and teal.

For the design of these wedding centerpieces, I styled the dried flowers in mason jars and bud vases. Although mason jars are inexpensive, their rustic style didn’t really jive with the modern, art deco aesthetic of the wedding in mind. To fix this, I designed three geometric patterns in Design Space that I foil transferred onto black cardstock. Once wrapped around the mason jars, the cardstock sleeves instantly transformed the wedding centerpieces into works of art.

The sparkle from the gold foil is so pretty! I love this project because it gives you the opportunity to DIY your wedding centerpieces months in advance, has endless design possibilities to match the style of your wedding, and is budget-friendly.

The best thing about this centerpiece design is that you can make them well ahead of your wedding. Store them in large plastic tubs with lids to make them easy to transport to your venue. After your wedding, you can use a few of the vases around your home as decor and a beautiful keepsake from your special day. We can’t wait to see what arrangements you create!
