After seeing the price of some really beautiful garters, we thought, "why not make it ourselves?" As her maid of honor, it was my pleasure to make this fun present for her (and her hubby-to-be).
We hit up the shelves of Joann, bought some lace, ostrich feather, bling, pearls, and elastic. After sewing the elastic and lace together, I added the personal touches with her desires in mind. I made the ribbon rosette with ribbon I already had on hand. A little glue gun action, and ta da! So beautiful & personalized.
It only cost us around $18 for both (coupons, people!), and it's a great personal touch.
So there you go! Possibly some inspiration! Go ahead & do it yourself!
