Recently half of EcoLuxe Studios, aka Elisa, was married at a beautiful ocean front home in Rhode Island. Being the DIY art and craft type people we put our creative brains together to create a memorable, thoughtful and detailed oriented wedding with the perfect touches. In this blog we want to share with you on how to achieve a stunning arbor for your special day at very little cost and work!
First off, you will need to get a hold of a handyman in your extended network to build a basic arbor. Simple! 4 legs, and a top that has a middle beam. Stain the wood the color you desire and set aside for the time being.
Here is the fun part! Go to your local craft store and buy ribbons and we are talking about A LOT! Pick your favorite ones and play with color, texture, and sheen. The length of ribbon varies depending on the width of your arbor. A common rule would be to add the width of arbor with an extra 2 yards for hanging purposes. In our case we did 9yds a ribbon.
Check out the photos as they are labeled with a step-by-step tutorial on getting this amazing look for little cost and a lot of wow factor that will be sure to impress your guests!
