My biggest diy success

So, as many of you know, I had started making a very large DIY wax paper backdrop for my wedding. It took me 6 months to finally complete it. I literally had this vision in my head, and just hoped it would work out.

I did not actually see the final product until my wedding day when it was set up. I was terrified that it would look like a tacky child’s project, but it turned out beautiful. The paper is extremely delicate, so I had to find a way to have everything ready and packed and then just put it together the night before my wedding. I basically spent 2 hours the night before my wedding, stringing all 100 strands on a long piece of rope and just prayed that it would look good as a backdrop. It was absolutely stunning and I want to share it with all of you!!
Everyone was using it as a photo backdrop which was pretty cool too!
