If you’re looking for decorations for a wedding or party with big impact, you can’t go past this amazing giant crepe paper peony! The big petals are layered around a paper mache base. Yes, it would take a while to create this, but if you are making it for a wedding or party, you can keep it afterwards to decorate with!

Things I did today:
Started making a bag for my bow and an arm guard (which kinda looks like a pad). I started doing archery a couple of weeks ago and as a graduation present, my boyfriend bought me a bow. I didn’t have much money to buy any extra stuff (I only got four arrows, when everyone else was shooting with 12) so I decided I’d make what I could.
I need to get some stiffening tomorrow to finish my bag and some clips to finish the arm guard. I keep catching my arm when I fire, which really stings, so hopefully next week I’ll be less bruised. The bag is made from some old curtains and a zip we had spare. The guard is vinyl, quilt padding and more curtaining, which I then top stitched and added some elastic.
