DIY: Lace Wedding Centerpieces

Looking for the perfect table toppers? Enhance your reception table bouquets with some inexpensive, rustic flair. We love the homey, backyard-wedding feel of these lace covers for Mason jar vases. Mix and match using our great selection of lace to give your DIY wedding a quick and easy, vintage look.

What you’ll need:

Cluny Lace

Cotton Eyelet Lace 

Leaf Lace Fringe

Scissors

Glue Gun

1 spool of invisible thread

30 Mason Jars (minus the lids)

Note: We used 3 different sizes of mason jars but you can choose to use 3 of the same.

1

Measure the lace around each jar allowing for a 1/2″ seam (doing the measuring and trimming all at once saves precious time!)

 

2

Cut lace accordingly

3

Wrap the piece of lace around the jar and eyeball a section 1/2” from the edge

4

This is where you can choose to delicately glue the piece together overlapping at the ½” mark, or sew the edges together. We prefer gluing to save on time. If you’re sewing, make sure that you’re using invisible thread. It’ll disappear into the trim!

 

Voila! Beautiful vase coverings that give your tables a country feel!

Want to put together your own assortment of lace? Choose from M&J Trimming’s incredible selection of guipure, knitted and more to find the perfect lace for your special day. These DIY lace coverings for mason jars are also the perfect giveaway for guests that want to bring a little bit of your wedding day home with them!

With Paris Fashion Week rounding up, we are beyond obsessed with anything and everything black and white.

2. Fold the thinner piece in half3. Glue both halves together creating a thicker piece (You can match the lace or mismatch for a more romantic touch…)

4. Pick up the leftover piece of lace and lay this piece under the now thicker band making sure it is centered.
Step 45. Using your Beacon Magna-Tac 809, now glue down this piece for an additional layered look

Running of the Brides 2010

By Blerona 

As many may know, Filene’s Basement   is most famous for its annual Bridal Gown Events  when brides-to-be can save hundreds, even thousands of dollars on designer wedding gowns.

And it is with great pleasure to announce that M&J Trimming will be working alongside Filene’s Basement in Union Square, NY on February 5th for their annual Running of The Brides Event.

Their huge selections of designer dresses are beautiful, but sometimes brides might think the one they chose is just a little plain. Well that’s where M&J Trimming comes in. Our bridal specialists will be there with samples of bridal trim to help give suggestions on embellishing the wedding dress fashionably with our newest bridal trim, and accessories.

And that’s not all, M&J Trimming will also be handing out Discount Cards to all attendees at the event, giving Brides-to-be another discount to save on trimmings, embellishments, veils, headpieces, custom gloves, silk flowers and more! So once you’ve picked out your designer dress and decided on your favorite trimming, come to M&J Trimming in New York with your card and purchase your selected trim at a discounted price!

Working with Filene’s Basement is a partnership we are very proud of. We cannot wait to help Brides-to-be get their ‘Dream Dress’!
