I love DIY Weddings and brides who take on the challenge to make their weddings extra special and unique. I too was a DIY bride six years ago and up to this day, I still think it was one of the happiest days for a self-proclaimed crafter like me.
Having my little online shop gives me a great excuse to craft. Seriously! It’s like doing my favorite pastime (Crafts & DIY) and get paid for doing it! BLISS. Not only that, I get an excuse to do some wedding accessories that is unique and creative. I get all sorts of requests from the moss-green wedding ring pillow to really cool and unique bouttonierres.
Last week, I was asked to do a wedding foot jewelry or some call it Toe Thongs. Yes, bling for the feet. I guess this is great for Beach-themed weddings or even for photo shoots.
I made a simple Foot Jewelry made of rhinestone and clear crystal beads. The bride wanted something inexpensive so I opted for those kinds of beads and chose the rhinestone to make it look more elegant but not pricey.
I would definitely try making these foot jewelry again using some wiring techniques and some swarovski crystals. That will definitely look stunning. Meantime, what do you think about my first attempt?

I couldn’t be more excited when I got an email from a follower a couple of weeks ago asking if I could do a rustic/country-inspired moss wedding ring pillow. I said yes in a heartbeat.
I’ve done one like this last year but had a ‘not so inspiring experience’ with the client and I figured it didn’t deserve any space here in my blog so that’s the history of me and moss wedding ring pillows, haha!.
But this time, I was very excited (too excited was more like it) and very inspired to make this. The bride-to-be just asked me to make a unique wedding ring pillow that is vintage-inspired and for an outdoor wedding.
Nothing says outdoors like this ring pillow, right?
I used jute twine to add to the rustic look. Since it was a wedding, I thought it’d be cute to add these teeny tiny kissing birds which were barely an inch in size. I also added some handmade items that I’ve made a week ago like the paper flower, the paper heart twine and the felt flower which added character to the moss ring pillow.
I hope the bride and groom will love this unique wedding ring pillow (will ship this tomorrow) that I made especially for them. I definitely enjoyed making it!
Love, love, love!

Hi everyone! How’s your weekend? We’re having a long weekend and I am so loving it. There’s three long weekends for the month of August in our side of the world. Yes, threeeeeee! I love the sound of that! That means I can have some well-deserved quality time with family and friends. And of course some orders to finish up. I haven’t really said hello to all of you as often as I wanted to. So sorry about this but I hope I can say hi to everybody even once a week but with some orders and work, deadlines are really catching up on me. But thank you ladies for the orders.
For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, I have a little online shop called Marryl & Lauren. I make handmade wedding details like crystal wedding cords, wedding ring pillows, unique boutonnieres and so much more. I love working with my hands and there’s just something about weddings that makes me happy and reminds me of my wedding some years ago. I was the DIY bride and did so many DIY projects in my wedding. This little online shop and my other blog is my way of sharing to brides-to-be some wedding inspiration and DIY projects.
I thought I might share with you a wedding ring pillow I’m making for a lovely couple Emil and Maita. They are having a purple and pink wedding theme.
I’ve accented this purple pillow with my handmade fabric flower with rhinestones and pearls in the center. The purple pillow looks really elegant with the white fabric flower.
To Emil and Maita, thanks for making me part of your wedding. I’ve enjoyed making this wedding ring pillow for you. Congratulations and best wishes!
