DIY Wedding Ideas

    What better way to celebrate a springtime wedding than with seedling favors that not only symbolize the start of a new growing season, but the blooming of your new life together as husband and wife? Packaged up neatly inside simple boxes, these favors are easy to make and convenient for guests to take home.     You'll need small kraft boxes, plastic wrap, potting soil, and the seeds of your choice. Herbs and grasses are virtually foolproof, but even pretty flowers will work. Check out the seeds available at your local garden center, and be sure to read the backs of the seed packets for the growing instructions before making a decision.     Start by lining the inside of your box with plastic wrap. This will prevent the box from getting soggy when watering the seeds.     Next, fill the lined box almost to the top with potting soil. Make sure to moisten the soil first with water so that it's easy to work with and to prepare it for the seeds. Following the planting instructions on the seed package, place the seed(s) on top of the dirt and cover lightly with more soil. Moisten the soil with water.     Trim away the excess plastic wrap.     When you're ready to assemble your favors, just gather the twine, string, or ribbon of your choice, as well as name tags and glue or double-sided tape.     Affix the name tag to the front of the box with a dab of glue or a bit of double-sided tape, and tie the twine around the box. Simple and cute!     The favors look sweet all lined up on a table, or set at each place setting...     ...or, showcase the favors alongside the flower or herb that they're getting. And don't forget to include (or display) care instructions for your seedling favors to ensure successful sprouting!     Project and Photos By: Mary Swenson

  • Project and Photos By: Mary Swenson     Flowers can end up being a huge part of a wedding budget, but luckily there are easy ways to create beautiful arrangements on your own without a big expense. If you're thinking about tackling the flowers for your day yourself, we've come up with three types of arrangements that will make this an easy feat.     The simplest, can't-go-wrong type of arrangement is to fill your container with only one color of one type of flower. Flowers en masse - whether they be hydrangeas, roses, or tulips (like we show here) - are a sophisticated look that you just can't go wrong with. The best part? Not only is this strategy the easiest way to arrange flowers, but it also means that you can use inexpensive flowers and still have a stunning centerpiece.      With our tulips, we left most of the leaf on each stem, which helped this arrangement look lush and casual, and allowed us to buy fewer tulips to fill the container. For a more formal, modern look, you can strip all of the leaves off your flower's stem and bunch them together tightly.     Another simple arrangement is one that consists of different colors of one type of flower. The color variations will add visual interest to your table, but the use of only one type of flower still keeps the look cohesive and clean.     For our arrangement, we used dahilas in complimentary hues, and we spread the different colors out so that they were balanced among the arrangement.     The third option is to use different types of flowers in the same color to create an interesting yet put-together arrangement that will rival what any florist could do!     With this look, it's important to make sure most of the leaves are removed from the flower stems, and that the flowers are bunched together tightly. This will help your arrangement to look neat and professional. Also, make sure to spread out the different types of flowers throughout the arrangement - using floral foam inside your container will help  with this.     No matter what type of arrangement you go with, keeping it simple is the best way to go if you're thinking about doing the flowers for your event. They'll look beautiful!

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff   Incorporate fresh flowers at your reception, in an unexpected way, by creating these floral push pins and eucalyptus escort cards. Guests will be thrilled to hunt for their name and table number when greeting by this fall foliage.    
      Materials: Scissors Glue Gun Sharpie or Paint Pen Flat Top Thumb Tacks Eucalyptus Leaves Number Stickers Small Manilla Gift Tags Assorted Fall Foliage Strawflowers Heather   Step One: Start by adding small number stickers to the bottom center of a stack of gift tags. These numbers will correspond with the table number at which each guest will be seated.     Step Two: Next, cut a small or medium sized eucalyptus leaf from a larger stem and write your guest's names on the leaf with a marker or paint pen.      Step Three: Then, start putting the pieces together. Poke the eucalyptus stem through the hole at the top of your gift tag. Cut a small sprig of heather and poke it through the hole as well. Set aside.     Step Four: Now it's time to make the flower thumbtacks. Cut the stems completely off of the strawflowers, to provide a nice flat surface under the bloom for the thumbtack. Then, using a glue gun, apply a generous amount of glue to the underside of the strawflowers and attach the flat part of the thumbtack to the hot glue. Wait for the glue to dry for a few minutes before handling.     Step Five: Now you have a flower push pin to attach the escort cards to a fabric-covered cork board, as guests enter the reception area. Poke the push pin through the top of the eucalyptus leaf and gift tag and you are done.      Guests will find their tables quickly and easily, and at the end of the night, they can take their escort card home as a souvenir. Strawflowers dry out very easily, so it's a great memento that guests can keep to remember your special day.

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch   Add a custom touch to everything from centerpieces to guest favors with this DIY idea for mini monogrammed mirrored vases. Using inexpensive, but heavy-duty, glass votives, you can create small flower arrangements that will feel unique and special for your big day. And each one will only set you back $1.50. How's that for inexpensive?      You can even create a special message for guests, spelled out with letter vases. Or incorporate shapes and patterns for an unexpected detail that guests will remember.     Materials: Glass Votives Looking Glass Spray Paint Painter's Tape Scissors (optional)   How-To:     1. Start by blocking out the basic shape of the letter or letters you want to monogram or message, with painter's tape.      2. Complete any inner details, using scissors (if necessary) to cut any shapes for the letters that can't be made by tearing the tape. Press the edges down firmly, to make sure the tape is secure.       3. Next, in a well ventilated area, spray paint the glass votives and allow the paint to dry fully before moving onto the next step.       4. Once the paint is completely dry, carefully remove the painter's tape.     5. Next, add water and flowers to complete each piece.   Use the finished votive vases as tiny centerpieces running along a long table or as favors for guests to take home at the end of the evening.

    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

    Looking for a less traditional cake topper for your wedding? These vintage fabric stars will bring a dose of bright charm to your cake or dessert bar.     Materials: To make them, you'll need basic star frame(s), mod podge, fabric, and scissors. Small cardboard star frames are available at your local craft store, while larger metal frames can be readily found at thrift stores or at many big box stores.     Materials (cont.): Find a fabric that coordinates with your wedding day. Search Etsy for a wide variety of pretty vintage florals or check your local fabric store for vintage replica fabrics.     Step One: Cut your fabric to the approximate size of your star and dredge it in a bowl of Modge Podge until completely wet. Place the fabric on top of your mold and use your fingers to gently shape it into form. Let dry overnight.     Step Two: Once dry, cut the fabric closer to the frame shape and turn over. Secure any extra fabric in the back with glue.     Step Three: Use wood glue to attach a stick to the backside of a large star frame. Many smaller frames come sold with small wooden sticks already attached.     Display Tip: Place one large star in your cake for a bold bright touch or scatter smaller stars atop cakes, cupcakes and desserts.

    Materials: 2 feet of 18" Russian Veiling Comb Thread and Needle Ruler Scissors  

    Important Note: There are two sides of the veiling: finished and unfinished. You want the finished end to run across your face NOT the unfinished side.

    Starting at point A start sewing in and out of the diamond shapes to gather the fabric. You'll continue sewing in and out on all sides until you get to point B.     Sew it to a hair comb.     After you attach it in your hair on the side of your head with bobby pins, then add an embellishment like a flower or feather to cover the comb.     Birdcage veils are made out of Russian Netting or Russian Veiling which is a millinery material. You can usually find it at a really good fabric store or online.     The veiling usually comes in three lengths 9" 12" and 18".     Isn't she gorgeous! If you just want a little coverage over your hair you want 9".     If you want it to cover your eyes, you'll want 12" and if you want it to cover your nose or chin you'll want the 18" veiling (cut it down to 16" to cover the nose.)     It comes in almost every color and you can also find veiling with chenille dots or pearls if you wanted to add embellishment in that way.     Inspired by precious birdcages everywhere! Enjoy!

    Concept by: Victoria Hudgins Photos by Erin Holland   Add a dash of confetti to your party in the form of a chandelier! This looks fabulous hung in multiples on top of a dessert bar, or hung individually as centerpieces.     In fact, you can turn your confetti chandelier into a 'cake topper,' who says that a 'topper' has to be placed directly on top of the cake?     Cut out one inch confetti rounds from colored paper. We used about 120 rounds for this installation. I would suggest using a monotone color scheme or 4-5 coordinating colors on each hoop.     Thread the confetti dots together. Begin at the top, leaving enough thread to attach the string to an embroidery hoop. Have your hot glue gun ready and place a tiny drop of glue on the bottom of each dot to hold it in place.     Using an embroidery hoop, tie four to six strings across the top in a criss cross pattern.     One at a time, tie the strands of confetti dots onto the hoop and string base. You can paint or adorn the hoop as needed to match your wedding décor.     Hang the installation above a cake or elsewhere; adjust the length of the strands for just the right balance.

  • Photos By: Mary Swenson     Simple, inexpensive clay pots can be turned into lovely little favors and centerpieces with just minimal effort and even less cash. Here's how!     To make the favors, we started with a small three-inch high pot. We cut the top off a plastic water bottle (make sure to keep the cap on), which fit perfectly inside as a liner for the pot.     Cut a piece of wet floral foam to fit inside the plastic liner.     Insert the liner and the foam into the pot, and fill the inside of the liner with water, so that the foam absorbs most of the water. The liner will ensure that the water stays away from the inside of the clay pot, preventing it from getting dark and wet (and, from leaking out of the hole that's in the bottom of most pots).     We purchased an inexpensive flower arrangement at a grocery store, cut out the flowers we wanted to use, and inserted the cut flowers into the foam. Since these favors will be going home with your guests, the foam will keep their arrangement intact during travel.     Our finished favor arrangement is sweet and simple!     Creating a matching centerpiece is even easier -- simply use a larger pot, and stick a cup of water inside the pot for your stems. We used the same flowers as we did for our favors, and added tulips for an extra touch.     The coordinating favors and centerpieces create a cohesive, beautiful look for your event!     To personalize your arrangements, print out guest names and table numbers on regular printer paper, cut into strips, and affix with double-sided tape or glue to the pots. So charming!
