Wedding DIY Projects

Pinterest, magazines and wedding blogs can all help spark some creativity for wedding ideas. Although, remember that you don’t always have to purchase the exact flowers, centerpieces or tablecloths that you see. There are many easy ways to create your wedding décor all by yourself! Not only will this cut down on costs and allow you to spend your wedding budget in other ways, but it will also allow you to get personal and make each aspect specifically what you dreamed of in your head. Your creativity, inspiration and ideas can lead you to create the wedding of your dreams!

Each element of your wedding can be easily turned into a DIY project. From the vases to the candleholders, even smaller elements of your wedding can be individualized to your liking. Here are some ideas on DIY wedding décor for your special day!

Wooden Signs

Wooden signs add a cute, boho feel to any wedding celebration. These signs can direct the guests to the ceremony or celebrations or even to let them know what food is which at the buffet. There are many places where these signs can be incorporated and thankfully they only require a few materials. You will need smooth, wood pieces {they don’t all have to be the same size, shape, etc.}, stencils and either paint pens or paint and a paintbrush.

1.     Take the piece of wood and place the stencils on the wood to spell out the words you want.

2.     Trace the stencils with a pencil so you have the outline shapes of each letter.

3.     Remove the stencil and begin to fill in the letters with either the paint pens or paint.

4.     Let them dry and you will have amazing signs for your wedding!

Lanterns

Lanterns are a great way to incorporate a different kind of item into your wedding décor. Inexpensive lanterns are available to purchase at places such as Michaels and Ikea. Although you can place a candle in the lantern for a more traditional look, you can also add flowers to the inside of the lantern or any other item that matches your theme. All you need are the lanterns and then whatever item you want to put inside!

Suspended Flower Strings

Looking to add some more flowers to your wedding but want a new way to incorporate them? We love the look of hanging flower strings and think they are perfect for hanging around your celebrations or hanging from an altar. All you need is string, twine or a clear cord and flowers.

1.     Take the ball of string, twine or cord and cut long lines from the spool.

2.     Cut the stems off of your flowers so it is just the tops of the flowers.

3.     Attach the flowers to the long piece of string, twine or clear cord, making sure they are evenly spaced out so there is some distance between them.

4.     Once they are all tied onto the string, hang up and take some pictures!
