DIY Wedding Ideas

  • Photos By: ohhappyday.com   This giant confetti looks festive whether its floating through the air or looking pretty on the floor.     We've seen this giant confetti premade in different parts of Europe but you can make your own with a $12 circle punch and some tissue paper. Maybe buy two and enlist the help of a friend.   Materials: Glassine Bags 4 3/4" x 6 5/8" Tissue Paper Giant 2" Circle Punch Computer Printer Japanese Washi Tape     The bags are really easy. Did you know you can put these bags through a regular desktop printer and print your own design on them? For this one we just made a really simple design on Adobe Illustrator then put the bag through the printer. It depends what program you are working in, but usually you need to make your document the same size as the bag and then tell your printer what size the "paper" you are loading into your machine is.   Stuff the bags with the giant confetti and seal with a small piece of colored washi tape.     Then leave the bags for your guests in their seats or hand out with the programs.     Happy Celebrating!

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff   Pop the question to your bridesmaids with these teeny tiny gift boxes, with a surprise message (and gift) inside.     This DIY will help get your potential bridesmaids excited for the big day and you can customize the painted birch boxes to your wedding colors in a pinch. This is a great way to give bridesmaids a piece of jewelry, like a ring, that they can wear to the wedding and cherish long after you say, "I do".     Materials:  Small Round Birch Craft Boxes Acrylic Paint Paint Brush 'Will You Be My Bridesmaid' print outs Crinkle Paper Scissors Velvet Ribbon Fresh Flowers, like Delphinium (optional) How To:     1. First, paint the base and lid of the box with acrylic paint in fun patterns and shapes. Wait for the paint to dry.     2. Next, cut a piece of velvet ribbon between four and seven inches long, and glue one end to the inside of the lid.     3. Wrap the other end of the ribbon through the ring and glue the loose end further down on the back of the ribbon. This will create a secure loop to hold the ring, so it doesn't fall out of the box. It will also lift the ring from the box when the lid is opened.     4. Next, add a strip of paper to the the ring and ribbon that pops the question. You can create these strips very easily with your home computer and a printer. The font used in the example is called Housegrind and is free for personal use, right here.     5. Lastly, add crinkle paper to the box and nestle the ring inside before tucking in the ribbon and paper message and putting the lid back on. Present as a gift to your potential bridesmaids and cross your fingers.

    Materials: Dowels (strong enough to place them in the grass) Fabric (we chose varying hues of yellow) Sewing Machine Scissors Elmers Glue String Tape Large Bowl

    Directions: 

    1. Cut out the shapes of flags that you want. The shorter flags work better than the longer lengths.

    2. Fold a flap of fabric over on one side and sew a space big enough for the dowel to fit in.

    3. Taking the large bowl, add about 2 cups of Elmer's Glue. Then mix in 1/3 cup water and stir until it is completely mixed in.

    4. Dip Flag into the glue mixture (with dowel already inserted) until it is completely covered. Remove some of the excess glue with your hands but make sure it is still has a generous amount of glue covering the surface.

    5. Hang the flags to dry by taping the dowels to the string. Make sure the string is level and is in a place that isn't windy. (Somewhere like a garage is best.) Line the area below the dripping flags with newspaper or scrap materials to prevent mess.

    Flags should dry and harden within 12 hours and you'll have yourself some cute flags to decorate your event.

     

    What a sweet photo op! Add festive details to your special day with these fun flag sculptures. They are made to be stiff so they stand out straight.

    The best part is they are really affordable and can be made with a few simple tools around the house.

    You could have a few lining a path or put them in the grass all over your outdoor reception.

    Hooray for love!

    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.

    Materials: • A rectangular piece of Styrofoam, found in the floral section of any craft store (make sure it's at least 4 inches deep, so that it can stand upright on a table) • Fabric to cover the foam (we used white linen) • Ribbon • Ball pins • Seating cards      First, cut the fabric to size, making sure that it fully covers the front, back, and sides of the your piece of foam. Iron the fabric to remove any wrinkles. Cover the foam with the fabric, making sure to pull it taut to eliminate any bumps and to keep it tight against the foam. Use the pins to secure the fabric to the foam.     Cut ribbon pieces just long enough so that they come to the bottom of the rectangle when they hang over the top, and notch the ends for a nicely finished look. Then, postition the ribbons so that they are spaced an equal distance apart along the rectangle. Pin the ribbons in place to the back of the foam.     Print out your escort cards onto cardstock and cut them into equal sizes; or, buy pre-cut cards and hand-write the names and table numbers.     Pin the cards along the ribbons, keeping an equal distance between each card. Make sure to leave each pin sticking out a bit so that it's easy for guests to remove their card from the board.     Not only is this board a simple, elegant, and budget-friendly way to display seating cards (and its colors can be easily customized to coordinate with your event)...     It's also a space-saver: since it's a free-standing piece, it takes up just a fraction of the table space you'd use if you layed out the cards on top of the table!     Voila! Your escort card display board is gorgeous!

    These floral minis are a sweet and unique way to incorporate fresh flowers into your reception décor.

    They're fairly easy to make and can double as favors. Imagine how pretty they'd be situated on top of each place setting!

    Supplies:

    Scissors Floral foam  Small vessel or decorative bowl One large bowl filled with water Hydrangeas and other fresh flowers with small to medium size blooms

    Step One: Cut down a piece of floral foam to fit snug inside the vessel or small, decorative bowl.     Step Two: Once the foam has been cut to size, drop it into a large bowl of water and let it sink to the bottom. After letting it soak for about a minute, place it back into the small vessel, and begin cutting down your fresh flowers. Each stem should be cut at a sharp angle to ensure it can pierce through the foam.     Step Three: Starting in the center and working your way out, begin adding short stems of hydrangea clusters to the arrangement.     Step Four: Once the entire bowl is filled, add additional flowers and fillers. Depending on where they are placed, some stems will need to be slightly longer than others. Add finishing touches with your favorite blooms and fill areas that look sparse.     Styling Tip: When the seasons change, so does floral availability. Just remember, hydrangeas are a key factor for keeping this project simple. The stems are nice and hearty and hold the surrounding florals in place.     These miniature arrangements can also be displayed on a place card table with paper flag table numbers or dispersed with small votive candles along the center of a long banquet table.

    Re-create this stained glass monogram with cookie cutters, lollipops, and these instructions from our cake expert!

      One recipe for stained glass cookie dough(Makes more than enough for one cookie and quite a few extras).    Materials: Rolling pin  Letter cutters in various sizes  Heart-shaped cutter (large enough to accommodate letters)  Mallet or hammer  Lollipops or hard candy in the colors of your choice  Small plastic bag  Silpat or other non-stick baking sheet liner  Baking sheet   Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit. Working on Silpat or non-stick baking sheet liner, roll out dough approximately ¼” thick.     Cut dough using heart-shaped cutter. Remove the excess (It can be frozen for future use).     Using letter cutters, cut out monogram from dough. Place on baking sheet and freeze for 15-20 minutes to firm.     Bake in pre-heated oven until dough is partially, but not completely, baked and just barely beginning to turn golden, about 5-7 minutes.     While cookies are baking, place lollipops or hard candy into small plastic bag. Use mallet or hammer to crush candy into very small pieces.     Fill cavities with crushed candy until it is slightly above the cookie line, taking care not to get any crushed candy on the cookie part.     Return to oven and bake until candy is just melted, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.     Wet a small piece of fondant until it is very sticky. Gently adhere to cookie in several spots, avoiding candy part, and use to affix cookie to cake.

  • Project and Photos By: Brittni Mehlhoff   Bring some holiday spirit to a festive cocktail hour with miniature holiday wreath stir sticks. This playful decoration for your signature cocktail will spark conversations amongst guests, guaranteed. Not to mention, it's also a great addition to hot cocoa at the end of a winter evening reception.     Supplies: floral wire scissors + wire cutters small (fresh) florals fresh rosemary or christmas tree trimmings washi tape stir sticks or lollipop sticks     Step One: Bend a 7-10 inch piece of floral wire on one end to form a circle shape and secure the loose end to the remaining wire. It should look like a lollipop. Begin threading stems of rosemary or christmas tree trimmings through the circle and secure with additional wire along the way. This will form a miniature wreath. Cut off most of the excess wire that is hanging below your wreath shape, leaving about an inch of it to attach to the stick.     Step Two: Begin adding small blooms in a couple of places and secure with floral wire.     Step Three: Attach your finished wreath to a stir stick or lollipop stick with washi tape. Add a string bow if desired.       Step Four: Place the mini wreath stir sticks in a festive cocktail or hot cocoa and enjoy!

    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!

    This project is super simple and very inexpensive. In the end, your guest will have an adorable little personalized vase with her name in a pretty font! The best part is- if you can get the jars for free- its pretty much just the cost of the flowers and a $5 paint pen. So great!

    Materials: Glass Jars (we used French yogurt jars but baby food jars would work great.) Wire (if you are going to hang them) Wirecutters Very Fine Paint Pen for glass (can be bought at a craft store.) Tape A list of your guests names printed out 2" in width. We used the font Lobster. Flowers

    Step One:   Make sure your jars are clean. Then tape the name you want to trace against the inside of the glass jar.     Step Two:   Taking the fine point glass pen, trace the name.  

    Step Three:   Remove the paper, then touch up any spots that need it.     Step Four:   If using as an escort card, write in the table number.     Step Five:   Add some flowers to each jar and display them on a table!     Display Ideas:   You can also display the vases on a wall or bush. If you go with this option, just add some wire to hang it.
