While looking over at Craftster, I happened upon a cool replacement idea for guest books…a Wish Tree. The idea is to have people write their well-wishes on little notes then attach them to your wish tree. I liked this idea. When I realized I could make it from pieces found in my backyard, I really liked this idea!
For mine, I gathered up tree branches and used floral tape to bind them together for a more tree-like look. When I had a “tree” I liked, I spray painted it black. Here’s the first one I made:
K had a great idea to make these be the centerpieces for tables instead of flowers. This way, people can write their “wishes” at their leisure. After everything is over, I’ll pick the tree I like best and put them all on that one. Voila! A one-of-a-kind wedding memory and decorative item for my home.
