I completed some DIY’s in the last two weeks and thought I would share, and ask you ladies to post some pictures of the ones you want to do and ones you have done!
Dollar store glasses, white glue, fine glitter, and patience!
Dollar store picture frame, paper from Michaels. I am making a little card to go in the middle of the paper with the time the dessert table will open at.
Our save the dates, I designed on weddingpaperdivas.com onto magnet paper. I made little cards that said (front) “A reminder so you can keep track of the wait, we;ve sent you a magnet to help save the date” and (back) Now what? 1.Mark this date in your calendar. 2. Put this magnet on your fridge door. 3. Check out our snazzy website: http://www.ourweddingsite.com
I ordered gold and white twine off etsy, (so much cheaper than anything I could find in the city), and made little glittery tags with my Cricut machine. I also cut out hearts for the the front envelope and used gold foil labels for the addresses.
The cake topper… I found the “Love” at Michaels for $1.50, couldn’t pass it up! It was plain balsa wood, so I glittered it and attached a cake pop stick I had so it can be pushed into the cake. (The gold isn’t as yellow in person)

@MissLibra: Oh, they’re all lovely! Makes me want to work on my centerpieces tonight. 🙂 I was planning to etch and glitter (same method as you) on various height cylinder vases for floating candles on half the tables.
Can I ask how you sealed your glitter?? I’m going to need to seal mine since the venue is pretty strict on glitter. :/

@Soon2BeMrsS: I actually haven’t sealed them yet, I ave to pick up something to spray them all with. I have a wedding advice box I am working on that I am painting black (along with that gflower girl basket) and need to get the paint for that too.
I plan on picking this up:

@Treejewel19: Love all of it! Where did you get the letters for the Mr & Mrs? The windows are a great idea!

@MissLibra: We made them. We drew the letters on plywood and cut them out and painted them. My FIL helped us attach them to the spikes.

@Treejewel19: love the letters! You could always hang them in your home after!

@Sparkidoodle: Thanks! We actually sold everything shown and a lot of purchased elements as well. It makes me happy knowing another bride used them.

Bouquets! Haven’t totally completed them, but they are almost finished.
Couple signs I have painted, still have a few more to make.
I have also done boutonniers with fishing spoons and a decent quality fake succulent, wrapped jars in twine, DIY’ed our invites, which I just need to put together now, and the coffee filter garland for the tent ceiling.
