When it comes to this time-honored tradition, we often have no trouble finding our “something new” item. Today’s craft focuses on a new way to celebrate the “old, borrowed and blue” part of the wedding tradition!

Brooches are a lovely touch for your “something blue,” as shown on this pair of boots. It is important to make sure the brooch is securely fastened, so it does not fall off and get lost.

Another fun way to celebrate the “old and borrowed” aspect, is to obtain pieces of old jewelry or fabric from a family member or friend. This bridal bouquet showcases the mother’s favorite ring and lace from a grandmother’s fabric collection.
