Spring Wedding DIY Projects

Have you been roaming Pinterest, trying to find some inspiration for your wedding decor? Well, we want to remind you 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 own wedding decorations 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 want! ✨👩‍🎨

Your creativity, inspiration, and ideas can lead you to create the wedding of your dreams! Here are some ideas on DIY wedding decor 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 even let them know what food is on the menu. 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, 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 decor. 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. 🌿

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 even an altar. 👰 All you need is some sort of string or fishing line, flowers, water, a needle, and scissors.

  1. Let your flowers hydrate in water for several hours before cutting the flowers. Hydrating the flowers properly will give them the best possible appearance.

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

  3. Cut the stems off of your flowers, so you just have the tops.

  4. Thread the flowers through the string, making sure they are evenly spaced out so there is some distance between them. (tip: tie a knot in the line beforehand to evenly space the flowers).

  5. Once they are all attached, you can hang them from a doorway, rod, or really anywhere! 🌸

Winter Wedding DIYs

Winter is fast approaching and with it comes lower temperatures, holiday charm and in some areas even snow! Our Phoenix and Vegas locations don't see much snow 😉, however our store in Denver will definitely be enjoying snow flurries and maybe even a white Christmas. 

As you know we love a good DIY project, so we've rounded up a few of our favorite DIY projects alongside our tips on how to design the perfect Winter Wedding.

Colors

Use white, silver and light blues to create a light, frosty feel that will represent winter vibes. You can incorporate these colors into the tablecloths, centerpieces, flowers, etc. If you are looking for a darker, richer color for accents you can use a deep burgundy. It looks so beautiful as a color on bridesmaid’s dresses and makes the bride really shine. This will help you keep the winter charm without having to use the traditional red and green Christmas colors. 

DIY Project #1 - White Glass & Foliage Centerpiece via Deer Pearl Flowers

Steps: 

1. Purchase mis-matched glassware from Goodwill or any thrift shop 

2. Pain the inside with acrylic paint (let dry overnight) 

3. Purchase winter inspired foliage from Michaels

4. Add a few fresh flowers 

Flowers

Who says flower crowns are only for spring weddings? We're loving this unique and easy DIY winter inspired flower crown that you can easily achieve below for less than $20. Take advantage of the berries, pine corns, fir sprigs and more during the winter seasons.  

Project #2 - Flower Crown via Brit.co

1. Wrap flower wire around your head to measure your crown size 

2. Select winter inspired foliage and berries (live or faux) 

3. Start with the greenery and wrap around the wire crown piece- securing with a smaller wire as you wrap around the crown piece. 

4. Add berries and other accents at the end - securing with smaller wire

Nature

Integrating elements of nature such as pine cones, and pieces of fir/pine trees (Christmas trees) will also add to the winter theme. Let nature take a play into your winter wedding by using pieces of wood, berries and nature inspired colors. 

Project 3 - Barn Wood Minimalist Centerpiece via Cedar Wood Weddings

 1. Search online for local barn wood 

2. Purchase votives and pillar candles from Dollar Tree or YummiCandles.com

3. Arrange in alternating patterns and accent with crisp white linens, napkins and glassware

Lights

Uplighting, portofino or bistro lights, spot lighting and twinkle lights are the many ways to use lighting to spruce up your celebration. There's nothing like a winter wedding without that twinkling feel.  Hanging lights, twinkling lights and various sizes of candles are all great ways to brighten up your special day.
