My tiny obsession with the “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” tradition was the ultimate inspiration for the name of this blog. You see, my “something blue” wasn’t blue at all – it was turquoise because it’s my favorite color. Hence the name Something Turquoise. I absolutely love hearing everyones interesting stories behind all of their special items. Did you know that we ask each bride of every wedding we feature, what her items were? Such great stories! Today I wanted to share a fun little idea for a kilt pin full of special little trinkets that you can pin under your wedding dress. I have a few ideas for you below, but I am sure that my simple ideas will only inspire great ones in you.
As with all our DIY tutorials, if you create one of our projects please send us a picture – We Love Seeing Your Creativity! If you use Instagram or Twitter please use the hashtag #SomethingTurquoiseDIY and it will show up on our Get Social page. Happy Crafting!
