The Royal Wedding (Part 4)

Out of all the handmade things I made for the wedding, this ought to be my favourite. These hantarans were made a day before the wedding reception, and took me less than few hours to assemble everything - it's nice to have natural resources (lots of trees) around your house hehe.


Each of the hantaran was decorated with a pantun plaque. Pantun is a four verse poem that rhymes and always been associated with expressing poetic feelings in Malay culture. My father is an avid fan of anything poetic, so he made 9 out of 11 pantuns all by himself. Trust me, even I have problems in understanding the words that he used for the pantun heh.


I bought the plaques at one of the art stores and decoupage them with the pantuns. The process wasn't that hard, but it took me few days too, since each step needs to be thoroughly coated with sealant to make the plaques waterproof.


Oh. And I did incorporate a lil bit of quilling in one of the hantarans hee...
