Wedding Wednesday - The Garter

Remember when I posted about the Cardinals Opening Day and I showed you this picture of my garters?

Today, I wanted to share how super easy DIY project this was.

I started by purchasing 2 red garters from Michaels.  I don't remember exactly how much I paid for each garter, but they were fairly inexpensive - maybe $6?  The website is currently only offering the satin garters in hot pink, plum or aqua.  However, colors may change with the seasons.

Then, I found this set of Cardinals earrings. 

I don't remember exactly where I purchased these, but it was one of those little sports shops in the mall.  I think they were around $9.  I bought earrings because it gave me a set of the charms since there are 2 garters. 

You need to carefully remove the charms from the earring base and then use red thread to sew the charm to the garter at the base of the bow.  Simple! 

This idea can be used with any favorite sports team. 

Happy crafting!


  1. Cute! I wonder what team I would want on my garter. Oh boy now I have to start following a sports team!


I'd love to hear from you!
