If you dream about having a wedding in the country, you probably appreciate natural beauty, and take satisfaction in doing things for yourself. DIY projects are one way to achieve simple elegance, and put your personal touch on your special day. Here are 3 ideas for projects that will offer all the advantages of hand crafting without taking up much time or money or requiring special skills.
Custom Drink Stirrers: Sure, you could order the standard plastic or wooden drink stirrers with a few lines of printed personalization, but for a homier feeling make your own from scratch. All you need are stirring sticks so you can glue any object of your choice on top. Maybe you’ll want to cut hearts out of red construction paper or pop on gum balls that match your wedding colors.
Singular Centerpieces: Not all wedding centerpieces are made of flowers. You can use found objects, and make lovely decorations for free. Gather books, candles, corks, sticks, vegetables, fruits, or anything that you like.
Thoughtful Favors: It really is the thought that counts. Instead of giving your guests a variation of trendy favors that they might have gotten at the last 3 weddings they went to, amuse them with something out of the ordinary. Mix up a big batch of Epsom salts and essential oils, and divide it up into pretty individual pouches or jars. Then, you can send your loved ones home to take a relaxing soak. If you’re known for a particular talent, use it. Hand out boxes of homemade cookies. For fewer calories, buy a batch of eraser clay that you can mold and bake into one-of-a-kind pencil erasers.
