So with my bridesmaids living out of state, they’re having to spend quite a bit of money to be in my wedding. I can not express my gratitude that they’re paying for a plane ticket ON TOP of all of the other expenses.
That being said, I want to do something nice for them… But I don’t want to do the cliche intial purses or robes. I may do that for the day of the wedding, but I want something smaller and more personal I can surprise them with in the meantime..
I also want something I can make myself! It is generally more cost efficient as well as meaningful to do it yourself.
So far, I am thinking a homemade foot soak and scrub, put into decorated bags and jars with a cute poem!
Any other easy DIY ideas?!

I bought canvas bags and screen printed cute little sayings on them that I creatively laid out in PowerPoint. I also made these little bags which were super easy!
and I did mason jars which I etched their names in with armour etch…then necklaces…I didn’t make them but got them off of etsy.

i am amking my bridesmaids a survival kit with cute things in it like tissues, lip gloss, nail files and other essentials things. However I am including a cute coupon book with coupons that can get them out of centerpiece assembly duty and silly things like that.

How about mini scrapbooks of you and the bridesmaid together? It’s a nice reminder of how much they mean to you, and I’m sure they’ll appreciate it long after the wedding is over.

@txlolo: What tools did you use to screen print your bags?

I just bout the canvas re-usable totes from Hobby Lobby, I think they come in a pack of 3? And then I got the iron on custom transfers for light fabric from Walmart. I designed each of my sayings in Power Point and reversed imaged the file so it would print correctly. Followed the directions for putting it on the bags and voila! Super easy. Here’s a lil pic…

I made neckaces for my girls that were super easy and about $5/each total:
Here’s a better pic from the tutorial I used with different designs you could do:
