Brides dream of their wedding day for years — picturing everything going just as they planned in their perfect venue, surrounded by friends and family. However, due to COVID-19, couples getting married in 2020 likely haven’t had anything go their way. This year’s weddings have looked different in many ways between venues canceling and laws prohibiting gatherings over a specific size. While many couples have moved their weddings to next summer or are merely eloping, some couples have opted for more intimate gatherings in less traditional outdoor venues, such as backyards or public parks. These smaller gatherings might be less work than the typical wedding of 200 people, however, it takes extra hands and some creativity to make these celebrations beautiful, unique, and memorable. Enter needle felting with Bear Creek!

Needle felting is the perfect way to add that unique creative flair to your next wedding celebration! Here are a few fun wedding craft ideas for you to consider as you plan your 2020 COVID wedding gathering!

  • Create a custom needle felted wedding cake topper

Dessert is the best part of every party, and while many couples are opting for nontraditional dessert options for their big day, it’s still a wedding, which calls for a traditional topper! So whether you’re putting it on a cheesecake or a plate of cookies, creating a custom needle felted topper will add that special touch every 2020 wedding needs! To make an excellent cake topper, consider creating bride and groom versions of their favorite creatures! For inspiration, check out our favorite needle felted animals!

  • Deck out the centerpieces with needle felted creations

From vases to floral arrangements, table centerpieces can start to add up, and with so many unreturned deposits due to COVID, 2020, couples don’t need any additional costs. Make the wedding decor something to remember through needle felting custom centerpieces like beautiful felted figurines or felted floral arrangements!

  • Create a custom needle felted floral arrangement for the bride

Creative alternatives to traditional flower bouquets are all the rage! Creating a needle felted bouquet is the perfect way to add a splash of color and artistic flair to the bride’s ensemble. Ask the bride to send photos of her favorite real flower bouquet options and create a needle felted replica that won’t whither, but can be cherished for years to come!

Even though couples likely won’t be getting to have the wedding they always dreamed of, with some creative solutions and a lot of love and care, their special day can be better than they ever imagined!
