DIY Wedding Ideas

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch   Sometimes the best flowers for boutonnieres have the shortest stems. Which is why this delphinium and freesia bout is so cute. Using floral wire to keep stems sturdy and elongate them, you can make these beautiful boutonnieres for your wedding party in minutes.     Of course, they're also a small fraction of the price of what a boutonniere from your florist will cost, saving you money on your big day. Here's how to make your own!     Supplies: Floral Wire Floral Tape Washi Tape Scissors Purple Stock Freesia Delphinium Pittosporum How-To:     1. First, cut the stem of a freesia flower and the delphinium. Add a piece of cut floral wire to each flower to act as the new, longer and more sturdy stem. You can do this by poking the wire through the bottom of the stem and up through the top of the flower. Form a hook shape, and pull the wire back down to secure it. Each wire should be 4 to 6 inches long.     2. Next, trim the bottom leaves from Pittosporum and bottom blooms from the purple stock, to prepare them for the boutonniere.     3. Arrange all the flowers and add the Pittosporum behind them, to act as the base, before wrapping all of the stems with floral tape.     4. Cut the bottom 1-2 inches from the stems, to give the boutonniere a clean, short look.     5. Wrap the stems in decorative washi tape, in your wedding colors, or a minimal grey, to cover over the floral tape.     There you have it! Keep in water until it's time to pin them onto the groom and groomsmen.

    Pretty tissue tassels aren't just for garland or balloons anymore. Why not add them to simple honeycomb balls and hang in groups for maximum impact. These tassels are cheaper versions and you can make a bunch in no time at all.     Materials: Honeycomb balls (I get mine at www.devra-party.com) Tissue paper Twine or fishing line Scissors Tape

    1. Unfold your sheets of tissue paper and cut into quarters, once in half lengthwise and once in half widthwise. Fold each quarter in half lengthwise again and cut.     2. Starting at the bottom, cut 3/4" fringe all the way up the sheet, leaving 1 inch before the other end.     3. Take a few sheets and trim the fringe shorter by about 3". Take a few more sheets and trim shorter by about 6". This isn't exact, experiment with lengths you like.     4. Layer 3 long sheets, 2 to 3 mid-length sheets and 2 short sheets, on top of each other longest to shortest. Offset the top of the sheets to offset the fringe lines. Staple all the sheets together on top to hold.     5. Roll the sheets together and tape the top tight.     6. Tape the top to the center of the honeycomb ball, making sure the tape reaches both sides of the ball, as shown.     7. Open your ball and hang.     Add different sizes of honeycomb balls. To attach a smaller honeycomb ball to a larger one, like these, simply add the smaller one's twine hang tag to the inside center of the larger ball with tape.      Make a few or a bunch, these are sure to liven up any reception or dessert table. I love to hang decorations everywhere. This plain marble table was just begging to have a pop of color below.     Use empty areas around your venue and fill them with cheerful decorations. A little bit unexpected, a whole lot of merriment.

    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

    Inspired by the sweet strawberry cakes that Swedes make during their Midsummer holiday each year, we came up with this festive wedding cake! It's perfect for an outdoor, rustic wedding. You can make the cake yourself, or simply embellish a store bought cake using our styling inspiration. It's easy and such a unique idea!

    First you'll need a white dome cake. We used a citrus flavor dome cake filled with whip cream, from a small family bakery, and it was delicious. We just took off the doily and cardboard it came on and slid it onto a rustic wooden board. You could also make your own. Here are instructions on how to make a dome cake.

    You will need around two pints of strawberries per cake.

    Cut the stems off and slice the strawberries in half.

    Lay the strawberries flat side down, all over the cake.

    Keep the cake in the fridge until just before the reception.

    Add edible wildflowers a few hours before your event. We used buckwheat, meadowsweet, and winter savory. The flavor of these flowers worked wonderfully with the citrus flavor of the cake!     We laid them all around the cake and sprinkled the petals and leaves on top of it. The more you add, the better it looks. Make sure the flowers you use are edible and have not been sprayed with pesticides!     More ideas for edible flowers: pansies violets nasturtium roses calendula     Display your cake on a rustic farm table and decorate with flowers around the bottom of the cake like in slide one. Your guests will love digging into this summery treat!

    Photos By: Carly Taylor   Add a sweet, personalized touch to desserts or drinks! They are easy to make in mass and can be completely customized to match your wedding colors and theme.     A stack of them laid out with chalk will provide your guests with the chance to personalize their drinks at the bar, or written on prior they can easily label each of your options for drinks or sweets at the reception!     The materials: Unsanded tile grout (home depot carries it), paint in whatever color you choose, white card stock paper, paint brush, hand sand paper, double sided tape, measuring cups, stir sticks, scissors.     The process:   1) Mix your 1/2 cup of your paint with 1 tablespoon of the tile grout and stir until the grout is completely dissolved.     Mixing the grout...     Stir away!  

     

    2) Using your brush, paint an even coat of the mixture onto your card stock paper and let dry. Once dry, lightly sand your paper by hand to remove any lifted spots.     3) Cut your paper into long thin lines and then cut each line down to the label size of your choosing, cut a V notch at the end of each to create a flag.     4) Fold each flag in half and using double sided tape attach to your stir stick.     Your flags are almost ready!     Voila!     5) Pre-write your labels with chalk or leave a handful out during your wedding festivities for guests to write in themselves.     How cute are these?!

    With a few everyday tools, transform plain white poster board into a chic geometric backdrop perfect for a modern-themed wedding.

      Supplies:  desktop printer This template 4 sheets of 8.5"x11" cardstock 9 sheets of 28"x22" white poster board  scissors x-acto knife yard stick or measuring tape self-healing cutting mat double-sided tape duct tape fishing line (to hang backdrop)

    Steps One - Three:   1. Download and print all four pages of template onto an 8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock. Cut out shapes and tape pieces together to form a star. This is your template for tracing.    2. Trace template onto the back (dull side) of a sheet of poster board. On a 28"x22" sheet, you can fit three stars.    3. Cut out star shapes. From beginning to end, each star takes about five minutes. The backdrop I created measures 44"x 53" and is made up of 27 star shapes.     Step Four:  Stack the stars together, orienting them so the edges are even.     Step Five:   Working from left to right, lay out a row of stars, overlapping the "arms" of each piece. Use double-sided tape to affix edges together. Important: The center line of each star must be exactly vertical and parallel to each other. Keep each row perfectly straight and make sure each star piece is oriented the same direction so the pieces fit together consistently. This is to ensure you have a uniform, symmetrical backdrop. I used the slats of my floor as a guide to line up my stars, but you can also use a measuring tape or yardstick. My completed first row is five stars across.   '   Step Six:   Lay out the second row of stars. Starting on the left, place a star so that the center line meets where the two bottom stars join. Complete the row for a total of four stars. Check that the center line of each star is perfectly vertical across all rows. You can use your yardstick or measuring tape for this.     Steps Seven - Nine:   7. Repeat the process for a third row with five stars across. Then a fourth row with four stars across. Continue for a total of 6 rows.   8. Carefully flip the backdrop over and use small pieces of duct or masking tape to reinforce the "joints" where the stars meet.   9. Trim off the edges on the left, right, and bottom.     Step Ten:    To finish the top of the backdrop, trim off star pieces as indicated in picture. You will end up with three "points" along the top.     Step Eleven:    On the backside of the finished three points, attach a small piece of duct tape a couple inches wide. Punch out a hole using a small hole punch. To hang, string fishing line through the holes, knot, and attach to ceiling hooks.
