Pew Decorations

DIY Pew Decorations is a great way to save money on a church wedding. Here are some simple steps you can take to make beautiful pew bows.

  • Buy sheer white fabric at your local fabric store. You can request chair sashes to get them at the proper size.
  • Fold the sash in half so that you can pinpoint the center.

  • Voila!

Make these beautiful pew decorations on the cheap! Just gather tulle, silk ribbons, and your flowers of choice.
