Hey There Lovely! DIY Bridesmaids Shadow Box Gift Idea

Don’t you just love spoiling your girls? It’s so much special having them with you on your big day and the small things you do for them makes it more memorable like this sweet DIY gift idea I have for you today! It’s a sweet way to ask them to be beside you while you say your ‘I Do’s’ and at the same time keep it afterwards.

I am obsessed with shadow boxes at the moment and I love how you can put so many things in it (like a small diorama) and always come out so adorable.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Shadow box 8″x8″ (from Typo)
  • Blue tack
  • Nail polish
  • Trinkets to give your girls
  • Hey There Lovely! card free printable

There’s so much you can do or put in this but for my box I put in my favourite shade of nail polish and a monogram necklace.

First off have your box standing and place your trinkets inside however you want them. Putting blue tack at the bottom of some items would really help to hold them still.

Once you have the trinkets placed, it’s time for the backdrop. The great thing about this is that it is a card as well so you don’t have to print out a separate card at all. Place the card at the back of the frame (you can put some blue tack between the base and the card as well, makes it easier!) then that’s it!

Adding a photo of you would be a nice touch as well, just like what I’ve tried here and instead of a necklace, I just hanged a feather earring on the photo.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I love putting everything together!
