OK. So I was at the dollar store today, and they had contact paper with a wood grain pattern on it. Since we are going for a rustic, elegant style for our wedding, and are doing all the decorations DIY, I of course snatched up 4 rolls, imagining I could find something crafty to do with it. Unfortunately, now I am just sitting here staring at it, with no idea how to use it. Its very pretty, with an oak-like woodgrain pattern, and is sticky on the back. Any ideas for what kinds of things I could do with it?

Can you incorporate it into your centerpieces some how? Some centerpieces have those round mirrors under them… could you cover some cardboard with the contact paper and use it as the base of your centerpiece?
Or what about using it for an accent on your table numbers? If you plan to have signs of any kind you can put the contact paper on card stock and use that as a base for the signage. Imagine your contact paper where the purple is on this card.

You could do a wood grain magnet board and have a supply of magnets -? ones that feature your guests’ pictures-ask all your guests to bringa pic of the two of you- or use it for your guestbook
make vases from jars covered with contact paper
do a collage of photos
Here are a few more ideas:

I used the same stuff in my wedding. Our card box was an old, rural mailcox and we covered it in the faux bois contact paper. Also, we had a thumbprint tree for a guest book and our handiwipes containers (for clean up) were wrapped in it as well!
