One thing I’m really excited to DIY is dyed ombre table runners!

We’re also going to be designing invites soon and printing them ourselves at a print shop. This should save us a bunch of money, I think it’ll cost about $30-$40 when all is said and done. Thankfully I have some talented friends who are helping design it based off one I like that I saw online.

@MangoLover4Life:  Our centerpieces, card box, guest book, favors, memorial candles, and I’m sure some more stuff that I can’t think of right now will all be DIY.

@MangoLover4Life:  It is VERY time consuming. I restarted it because my first attempt wasn’t very good. Hmmm. I spent $20 on the tulle, $70ish on the rose petals, and $20 on non-stick for underneath… I’m not sure how much on the glue sticks. I am using hot glue, but with a low heat gun.

I actually used tissue paper. I printed out the design using this tutorial, and then cut them out, laid the design over the candles and used a blow dryer on hot to melt the tissue paper into the candle.

 

This is how they came out:

 

 

It really looks like the design was printed right on the candle.

we are doing our table numbers (just went to hobby lobby and bought basic wood picture frames, and stained them oursleves, and sprayed the cardboard insert with chualkboard paint) to make them look like chaulkboard, plus guests will be able to bring them home afterwards and actually use them as picture frames).

We are also doing our escort cards with chaulkboard paper, and a stamp.

and DIY favours- we decided on doing my mothers homemade granola, and are using cupcake boxes, twine, and DIY chaulkboard thank you tags (found a free download online, and had staples print them for $3 plus the cost of the paper)

@MangoLover4Life:  Once. I finally figured out the direction i wanted to go in, the typography took me a few hours. I bought kraft paper at. Hobby Lobby and had them printed at Kinkos. I had designed them so that I could just cut down the middle. I then used glue dots to put on the popsicle stick and stick the two sides together. They turned out really cute and I got somany  compliments on those on mynwedding day 🙂
