I diy’d our invites too, & am doing a lot of stuff myself partially because I’m insane 😉
eta: I whipped up some pinwheels using these instructions, and it was way easier then I thought it would be.
I opted to re-use ‘green’ (live/new growth) branches limbed-up from trees in our yard instead of buying dowels and they still turned out great for our rustic vibe.

I admit I am completely shameless and basically just flooding this thread haha.
I promise I will stop ..when the wedding is closer 😛
here are 3 of the tissue poms I made fluffed and hung in natural light (had to be sure I liked them before I made more). The rest are folded for transport 🙂

@missmouse29: What did you use to make your pinwheels? (the kind of paper)
Post # 23
Did anyone make their own program for the ceremony? I was thinking of making fan programs, but I was wondering what kind of paper to use.

@carriejuly: I did. I used 80# and 60# glued together. They’re pretty sturdy.

I used scrap booking card stock, 80lbs. anything lighter just tore. The ones in the photo are.. double sided K&Company and Amy Butler prints. Sorry it took me so long to respond I’ve been crazy busy!
thanks! those were the first ones I made and they look a little lopsided to me but hey, no one is going to be paying as much attention to this stuff as me 🙂
they are actually relatively easy and not too time consuming if you aren’t fluffing them all up at the same time.
