DIY Wedding Ideas

    By ohhappyday.com   This is for those brides that have figured out a great favor to give, but need some packaging to make it pretty.     I prefer making the tassels out of crepe paper versus tissue paper because there is no glue needed and the crepe paper takes about five seconds to shape while the tissue paper takes a lot of time to "poof." These are really easy and really affordable to make. Here's how!   Materials: Folds of Crepe Paper Scissors Chinese Take Out Containers

    Step One Take a section of crepe paper that is folded in half (about 5" long when folded) and cut off very thin "sections."     Step Two Put two or three of the "sections" together (you'll want to test a few to get it the right thickness depending on the paper) and twist tightly starting in the middle.     Step Three When the middle section gets twisted enough let it naturally loop and begin twisting the crepe paper around itself (If you are attaching it to the wire handles you'll need to wrap it around before you twist.)     Tip no. 1 The stretchiness in the crepe paper will help it hold and stay tight.     Tip no. 2 The fewer sections the better it will hold. You should find the happy medium between making sure it holds tight and having a nice amount of thickness.     Step Four Very lightly "crunch" the tassle in your hand to give it a little body and trim it with scissors to even it out.

    Instead of corsages, consider giving the mothers of the wedding party small bouquets to carry. No need to worry about pinning on finicky corsages, let them carry these sweet bouquets instead.     You will need: Around 10 stems of flowers including 3 large open blossoms, 1 stem of greenery, 1 stem of filler, and a mix of budded and open flowers in different shapes and sizes. Pictured: 2 parrott tulips, 2 stems of ranunculus, 2 stems of mimosa, 3 stems muscari, 1 stem hyacinth.   Other flowers that work well: roses, lisianthus, astiilbe, queen anne's lace, lily of the valley, and herbs.   Finally, you'll need string, scissors, clippers, ribbon and a vase to hold bouquets.     Directions: 1. Strip most of the leaves off the flowers and cut the stems around 6 inches short.     2. Hold a few of the flowers in one hand and add flowers and greenery with the other hand, until the bouquet looks about right.     3. Tie with a string.     4. Trim the stems about 4 inches long.     5. Tie with a ribbon.      6. Keep in vase with a label until the event or photos begin!   Tip: When arranging the flowers, remember you can balance out one large flower with 3 smaller flowers. Another idea is to keep the larger, open flowers towards the bottom and the lighter flowers and buds towards the top of the bouquet.     The mothers in your wedding party will love carrying these sweet nosegays and can enjoy them for about a week after the wedding!        Aren't they stunning?     Project and Photos By: Chelsea Fuss

    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.

    Erica O'Brien, of Erica O'Brien Cake Design, is frequently asked about the chevron technique, one of the hottest design trends this wedding season. Here, she shares her method.

    Materials: Water Tapemeasure Paper Cornstarch Fondant in the color(s) of your choice (We used a citrus-inspired palette here.) Xacto knife Scissors Food-use only paint brush A pen A rolling pin Fondant board

    Measure cake's circumference. Determine the size of the chevron by dividing circumference into even segments the size of your choosing, usually around 1" to 1.5". For example, our cake had a circumference of 26". We determined that each segment would be 1.3" for a total of 20.     Create chevron template. Measure segment size on paper and mark with pen.     Holding paper horizontally (landscape), fold into accordian so that each fold measures the same size as the segment.     Keep folding even segments....     Each of our folds measured 1.3"     Cut paper at an angle.     For a deeper chevron, angle scissors more vertically. For a more shallow chevron, angle scissors more horizontally.     Using the same angle as first cut, cut the other side of the paper. For a wider chevron, move scissor further from first cut. For a narrower chevron, move scissor closer to first cut. Unfold. Your chevron template is complete.     Roll fondant thinly.     Place template on fondant and carefully cut with Xacto knife. Avoid paper sticking to fondant by rubbing it with cornstarch.     Remove excess fondant.     Use template to gently score cake to guide placement of fondant chevron.     Use water to wet cake.     Apply fondant chevron to cake.     Continue pattern around entire cake.       Lay the second color directly above the first.   (Optionally, used the template to guide placement of another row evenly spaced above first row).     Repeat with additional colors.     For a finishing touch, add fresh flowers, or use sugar flowers like the ones seen here.     Photos By: Cory O'Brien

  • Photos By: Caroline Drake   Add a splash of color to your flatware in a few easy steps.    I love all the beautiful, bright colors used in weddings now-a-days.  The "dipped" look is such a fun trend, and you can easily customize the look of any bridal shower or casual wedding reception with this colorful wooden flatware concept.       Supplies: foam paint brush  craft paint in the color of your choice cup to hold paint  tape  wooden cutlery (here is a good resource for this)     Step One: Tape around the utensil where you would like the paint to stop.     Step Two: Paint two coats of paint below the tape line on the top side of the utensil, and allow it to dry. (At least 20 minutes).     Step Three: After the top side is dry, flip the utensil over and paint the back with two coats, and allow to dry completely.     Step Four: Once the paint has dried, carefully peel back the tape.     You can repeat the process for all of your cutlery, and alternate colors if you wish.      It's always the little things that leave a huge impact on guests!

  • Project and Photos By: Jennifer Kirk   Color printing can make up the bulk of the cost for invitations. Below is a budget-friendly way to add interest and color to simple black and white invitations with bright fabrics and patterned paper.      You Will Need...   Materials: Fabric Patterned papers Spray mount   Tools: Sewing machine Rotary cutter Pinking shears Corner rounder     Step One For invitations that will go inside an A7 envelope (5.25"x7.25") cut out 5"x7" fabric rectangles. (You can use the downloadable PDF as a guide for both the fabric cutouts and invitations.)     Step Two  Fold fabric in half. Sew each side closed with a straight-stitched, 1/4" seam.     Step Three With pinking shears, trim the very edges of the sides and top. Your finished pouch holds a 4.35"x6.5" invitation.     Patterned Envelope Liners: Step One To line "announcement" envelopes (a straight envelope flap), first cut out paper rectangles measuring 6.75"x4".     Step Two Round the top corners with a paper corner rounder and lightly spray the back of the paper with spray mount.     Step Three With one hand, pop the envelop open. With your other hand, gently guide the paper partway into the envelope, rounded corners towards the top. The backside is sticky from the spray mount, so take care not to let it adhere to the envelope.     Step Four Align the top of the paper so that it sits just below the envelope adhesive and the edges are even on both sides of the flap. Press down firmly, then fold the flap down to crease the paper with the envelope.     Step Five Use scraps of paper to embellish RSVP cards, directions, etc.

    Project & Photos By: Brittni Mehlhoff   Make a small, natural ring pillow perfect for the tiny hands that will be carrying your precious cargo down the aisle!  

    Materials: Sheets of Moss, Floral Foam or Regular Styrofoam Brick, Knife, Floral Pins, Ribbon, Craft Glue, Scissors

    Step One: Cut foam brick in half to create a square and begin cutting the square down to desired shape. Slice off edges to make it less blocky and more of a pillow shape.

    Step Two: Cut a piece of moss based on the size of your foam block and begin wrapping it around the foam. Secure the moss to the foam using floral pins.

    Step Three: Once the moss is secure on all sides, cover up any floral pins that are showing by gluing very small pieces of moss overtop. 

    Step Four: Cut a piece of ribbon or fabric scrap to roughly twelve inches in length. At the six inch mark, fasten the ribbon to the center of the moss pillow with a dab of glue and a floral pin.

    Step Five: Secure your rings by sliding them thru the ribbon and tying a knot!

    Perhaps one of the easiest projects you can create, these yarn poms when done in bulk will lend a dramatic flair to your ceremony or reception area for a very minimal investment!     Design them to coordinate with your wedding colors. They will look great on a cake, above the dance floor or as the backdrop to an altar.     Materials: Yarn in varying colors to match your wedding decor Scissors.   Process:   1. Using your middle three fingers begin to wrap the yarn around in a circular motion.     2. Wrap a thick layer of yarn, about 50 loops for a medium sized pom.     3. Carefully pull the looped yarn off your hand, keeping it in its wrapped shape.     4. Using the long end of the yarn, wrap it around the center of your looped yarn 3-4 times, pull to tighten.     5. Cut the end of the yarn off and tie a small knot around the center of the loop.     6. Starting at one end, begin cutting the yarn down the center of the loops. Cut all the way around the circle you have created.     7. Fan the pom out on all ends to create an even poof for the ball.     8. The poms are easy to hang using fishing wire tied around the center loop you created.     9. How sweet is this pom pom cake!?     Photos by Carly Taylor

    With the holidays right around the corner, discarded Christmas tree trimmings are a dime a dozen. Using this extremely inexpensive, and often times free, material as greenery for a holiday wedding is a festive way to say I do.

     

    If you're hoping to incorporate this idea in some small way, boutonnières are the perfect fit. Give a nod to the holiday without going over the top and add a personal touch with custom monogrammed pendants your wedding party will cherish.     Supplies: Small florals (assorted) Christmas tree trimmings Scissors Washi Tape Oven Bake Clay Small Letter Stamps String Small 1/2 inch Metal Circle Cutter

    1. Start with two or three short branch shoots from the tree (about 4-5 inches long) and remove the needles from the bottom third of each stem.     2. Begin adding additional flowers until you've reached desired fullness.       3. Wrap the end of the stems together with washi tape, leaving the stems exposed at the bottom.     4. You can fill a short glass with a little water to keep the boutonnières fresh until the wedding (depending on the flowers you use, they should stay fresh this way for at least two days).   5. Now it's time to make your monogramed pendant. Roll out a small piece of clay to about 1/4 inch in thickness.     6. Cut the circle shape from the clay.     7. Stamp your pendant with the first letter of your groom's or groomsman's first name (or last name if you'd prefer).     8. Poke a hole through the pendant at the top and bake in the oven according to directions.     9. String the pendant up and attach to the boutonnière with washi tape.     10. Add a straight pin and they are ready for your groom and groomsmen on the big day.

    For this project you will need fabric - we used chiffon and tulle. Yardage needed will vary based on the number and size of flowers, as well as the fabric thickness. You'll also need a piece of paper, a pen, scissors, pins, needle and thread, glass seed beads, and a plain hair clip or comb.

      To make a stencil first free hand a rose petal shape and cut out. Then retrace it five times on a larger sheet of paper to create a full flower shape. This will help you get an even pattern. Cut out pattern.     Take some fabric and fold it into a square a little larger than your flower pattern. Pin the pattern to fabric and carefully cut out. Repeat this process until you have enough layers to make a full flower - the number of layers will vary depending on the weight of your fabrics and the size of your flower. The example shown here uses 26 layers.     Stack flower cut outs, alternating fabric types and staggering petals. Use a needle and thread to secure them together at the center.     Pinch together the center of the flower (from the bottom) and secure with stitches to create volume and give the flower and authentic shape.     If desired you can sew decorative beads in the inside center of the flower.     Finally, sew the flower to a hair clip or comb.     You can also create a tie-on corsage or sash, by sewing one or more flowers to a length of silk ribbon.
