Oh wow I was thinking of doing that same napkin ring project using the paper towel rolls!  We ended up doing something different for the napkin rings.

I have a lot of the big DIY items done already so I’m really just working on small details that I have the time to do.  I think this weekend I’m going to do some mini chalkboard signs to list the beer and wine selections.

I’ve been on a painting binge recently.  I finished these Mr/Mrs signs over the weekend.  I’m going to attach ribbon to the back and hang them from our chairs at the reception.

I also just finished this cake topper using some wooden bird ornaments I found at Michael’s.

Edm___JJS:  Oh man where do I begin? lol! I had a long enough engagement (almost 2 years) that I made a bunch of stuff in the beginning, then changed my mind, ripped it apart, and remade things 😉  I have a limited amount of pictures here at work, but here goes:

I made all of our favors (hot cider mix with caramels & cinnamon sticks)

I made guestbook pages to have at each place setting for people to fill out, and a mini suitcase for them to put them in.

I made the card box out of a little suitcase as well.

I have all of the centerpiece components ready, but I still have to assemble them.

I have our programs printed, assembled, & boxed. (here’s the cartoon bridal party lol)

I made the Bouts, Ladies’ corsages, and our bouquets from Paper, parchment, and real touch flowers:

Misc. Signage:



I’m going to regret all of this when it’s time to transport it all there 😉

Edm___JJS:  I’m waiting on my flowers to come in so I can assemble them (real touch mini calla lilies), I have already painted picture frames but sounds like I need to buy more, I made my card box already, I can’t make my escort cards until the final RSVP’s come in, As soon as I know all the candy we are getting I will make the labels for the candy bar, Our programs need to be printed/folded but I am leaving that up to Fiance (things we have in there keep changing so hes waiting closer to time), He printed off pictures that corresponds with the table number, I finished making cute hangers for my girls (not the wired ones), I’m sure there is more thats I am missing and can’t think of but the countdown on my phone say 2 months, 12 days and counting (September 13th wedding) and I feel like I’m forgetting alot even though I have everything written down!

I just started my first DIY project, yikes! I am making a banner for our card box with burlap and painting the letters gold! I also purchased part of my BM’s gifts yesterday and got a killer deal! I am giving them canvas bags for the day of with their initials on them (I am doing the iron-on paper) and just have to figure out my other gifts!

Edm___JJS:  We’re doing a few little things DIY.

My mom is making an arch. It isn’t done yet. Still needs to be stained, but it is coming together nicely.


I made some simple jars for notes/flowers:

A burlap banner (I know, it’s been done, but it was something I could do quick and easy)


And the label for the homemade apple butter (not done yet)
