If you want to decorate for a white and blue church anniversary, you probably want to keep the overall cost of each decoration rather low. There is usually a large amount of space in a church, so it takes several artistic pieces to properly decorate. For example, if there are 10 pews, you'll need at least 10 pew bows. If each bow costs £6 to create, you're already looking at £65. To help control the cost, use budget-friendly tulle, ribbon and faux flowers to create your own white and blue church anniversary decorations.

Instructions

    Pew Bows

  1. 1

    Cut a 30-inch long piece of white tulle to create the base of a fluffy pew bow to decorate for a white and blue church anniversary. Tie the tulle into a bow with 4-inch long loops on each side.

  2. 2

    Cut a 24-inch long piece of silky blue ribbon. Tie the ribbon into a bow with 3-inch long loops on each side. Cover the back of the bow knot with glue and secure the blue bow to the front-middle of the tulle bow so that the knots are centred.

  3. 3

    Cut the stem off of a white, silk carnation and cover the back of the flower with glue. Secure the back of the flower to the centre of the blue bow, right over the knot. Let it dry.

  4. 4

    Repeat the process as needed to create multiple pew bows. Use ribbon, wire or poster putty to secure the back of the pew bow to the aisle-side of a pew to decorate for a white and blue church anniversary.

    Wall Bows

  1. 1

    Cut a 30-inch long piece of white tulle to create the base of the white and blue church anniversary wall bow. Cut a 30-inch long piece of blue ribbon. Center the blue ribbon on the tulle so that the ends match up. Cut another piece of tulle 6 inches long.

  2. 2

    Measure in 3 inches from one end of the 30-inch long tulle/ribbon stack and make a 3-inch long loop in the stack. Pinch the first loop between your fingers and make another 3-inch loop. Repeat process two more times to create four loops, two on the right and two on the left. Use the 6-inch piece of tulle to wrap around the middle of your four-loop bow. Tie the 6-inch tulle in a knot at the back to secure the bow together.

  3. 3

    Cut the stem off of a white, silk carnation. Glue the back of the carnation in the middle of the bow and let it dry.

  4. 4

    Repeat the process as needed to create multiple wall bows. Use ribbon, wire or poster putty to secure the back of the wall bow to a wall or pole to decorate for a white and blue church anniversary.
