These wedding decorations will brighten up that special day whether the event is inside or out. Any movement will set them in motion, not just wind. Printable templates for the two designs pictured are included with the instructions. Just print and cut them out. I’ve also added one blank template. Print it out and use it as a pattern to create this project with your own artwork or specialty papers from craft stores. Add craft paint, glitter, stickers, rubber stamp images, etc. The design possibilities are unlimited. The catchers are printed on regular copy paper but can be created with any lightweight paper including some wedding themed gift wrap.
