    Using watercolor in your wedding can be an easy way to add both color and pretty artistic flair. Make drink tags, escort cards, or favor labels with these easy instructions.     Materials: You will need watercolor paints, paper tags, a white crayon, a paint brush and water.     Process: Write in your details on the paper tag with a white crayon. I did a combo of table numbers and simple words to show how each would look. Be sure to press firmly with the crayon.     A preview of the finished product. Loving this vibrant orange.     Dip your brush in the water and the paint, before stroking lightly over your tag.     Mix colors and do a couple coats to ensure good texture.
      The watercolors will not adhere to the wax portion of the tag where the crayon has left its mark.
      What a difference adding favor tags makes! Let dry and attach to your favor or item of choice!     Lastly, get creative and have fun!      Project Design By: Victoria Hudgins Photos By: Carly Taylor

    Greet your guests with something they'll always remember with these DIY ombre seashell escort cards. They are the perfect touch for a beach wedding or a subtle nod to the sea for any bride dreaming of a coastal reception.

      The finished escort cards look beautiful and unique, but they're also very quick and easy to make.     Materials:  Seashells (which can be found at a local craft store) Acrylic Paint Paint Brush Paper Towel or Rag Metallic Sharpie Scissors Cotton Piping Filler Cord Craft Glue How To:     1. Start by painting the bottom or top half of a seashell and let the paint sit for 15-30 seconds.     2. Next, gently wipe away the majority of the paint. This will leave you with an ombre painted look.       3. Once the paint is dry to the touch, which shouldn't be long since most of the paint was wiped away in step 2, write guests names and table numbers on each shell, with a metallic marker.     4. Then cut a piece of filler cord, roughly 5 inches long, and tie it in a knot in the center of the cord.     5. Attach these knotted cords to the seashells with glue for a nautical look.      Enjoy your beautiful escort cards!

      Supplies: 1. Metal Zinc Tray 14"x14"($10) 2. Wheat Grass Seeds($4)  3. Potting Soil ($8) 4. Gravel for Drainage     Step One: Put a layer of gravel to help with drainage. The metal tray we used did not have built in drainage so the gravel helps with that. Step Two: Put a layer of soil on top of the gravel, make sure you leave 1/2" of the metal vessel showing. Step Three: Put a generous layer of seeds down, make sure it is even up to the edges. Step Four: Cover the seeds with a .25" layer of soil. Pat down.     Step Five: Water the seeds with a gentle flow of water (either a watering can or a paper cup with holes punched in the bottom)so the seeds aren't washed around. Keep in a sunny area and water daily, keeping the soil moist. Grass should be ready 7-10 days after planting.     This gorgeous wheat grass is 14 days old.     The grass will eventually look overgrown so you'll want to test it in advance of the big day so you'll know what works best for you.     Wheat grass is an easy way to liven up a spring or summer event. You can use it for seating cards or even incorporate it into centerpieces.     For the seating cards, you will need the cards and popsicle sticks ( $2 from a craft store).     Wheat grass seeds can be bought at a health food store like Whole Foods. If after a week of growth you notice bare spots you can move the grass that is full around to cover it and give it a few days to grow in.     Voila! Your gorgeous DIY project is done!     This seating card display costs under $25.     Happy DIYing!

    There is no better way to ensure your guests remember the special day you are planning then to post the date on their fridge!   In lieu of giving them a face photo to stare at for the coming 4-9 months, why not hand off a pretty felt magnet that can grace their kitchen with your love even after you're married!     Materials: Felt Scissors Ribbon A custom stamp Small adhesive magnets Embroidery thread A needle   To Make:   Cut felt (2 layers at a time) in the shape of a heart.     Your hearts don't have to be perfect - the more unique and homemade the better!     Cut a coordinating ribbon and stamp in your wedding date.     Place the dated ribbon coming out from one side of the heart.     Place the top layer over the bottom and begin hand stitching the heart together using embroidery thread. Be sure to stitch through the ribbon to hold it into place.       Almost there ...     Send off with a sweet announcement to your guests.     Photos By Carly Taylor

    Photos/Project By: Victoria Hudgins   Using fresh or dried herbs is a wonderful and economical way to bring a seasonal touch to your wedding. Lavender is my favorite dried herb to use because it is easy to work with, affordable, and smells amazing. Here's how I made these simple lavender escort cards!
        Collect a bunch of lavender and hang upside down to dry out. Or, purchase dried lavender from a local florist or home store.     Use simple white escort cards and write in names and table numbers for your guests.     Using an exacto knife, slice two small horizontal holes at the top of each card.     Thread your lavender through the holes, cutting off any excess stem at the end.     Since the herbs are dried, you can complete this project well before your wedding day.     Place bunches of lavender on the display table for added décor.

    This homemade project is so sweet and surprisingly easy to create!      You will need an iron to get your fabric just right.     You will also need blank envelopes, fabric (we like a variety of several patterns!), a glue stick is a must -- a cutting mat, an X-acto knife ... and do not forget your scissors!     Initially, you will need to make a pattern for your envelope.    For the Pattern: 1. Open your envelope and lay it down flat on your ironed fabric.     2. Trace the envelope and then cut out the fabric.   3. Next, trim the fabric so it's slightly more narrow and shorter than the envelope.    4. Slip the fabric inside the envelope to make sure it fits the width. You may have to trim some more until it looks about right. If the top of it is too long, this is OK, you will trim this later after you glue.     To Line the Envelopes: 1. After you've cut out your fabric liners (using the template or your own pattern), fit one inside an envelope to make sure it fits.    2.When it looks about right and is nice and flat with no wrinkles, lift up the top part that goes over the envelope flap. Cover this section of the envelope in glue.      3.Next, lift up the bottom portion and hold the envelope open. Cover the inside of the envelope with glue and press down the fabric.   4. Make sure the fabric is glued securely, especially along the edges of the flap.   5. Leave it to dry for about 15 minutes.   6. Take an X-acto knife and a cutting mat and trim around the edges. Make sure these are nice and clean.     7. Use 3 dabs of glue along the envelope flap to secure the envelope to mail.   Your guests will be surprised when they open the envelope and find the beautiful fabric liner! Add other special touches, like personalized stamps as well.     Voila! The total cost, including envelope, is about .70 cents per envelope.     Photos By Chelsea Fuss
