This was My Fiance and My DIY Engagement Party 

Everything I did was all DIY ideas combined from pinterest and google. It took a lot work to get to where it was but it was SO WORTH IT.

I did a rough draft of my table numbers this weekend! I went to three different craft stores looking for wooden numbers and couldn’t find them anywhere. Finally, I decided to look at Home Depot and found these plastic house numbers. They were light weight enough to go on the paper. They look a little wonky because they haven’t been glued down yet and I just wanted to see how they would look. I went to Hobby Lobby and found several sheets of “vintagey” looking paper that I thought worked well together and mismatched gold frames (most were from HomeGoodes, some from Goodwill or yard sales). I love the way they turned out ๐Ÿ™‚

sodadadada:  Hey there!  Here’s how we did it:

– Chopped down a tree from my FIL’s property

– Chainsaw-cut it into 12″ sections

– Used a drill saw to drill a hole into the center about 3/4 of the way down

– Sanded down the rough ends, smoothed the edges

– Painted them with varnish for staying power – we used this 

– Cut water bottles in half, placed one in each centerpiece hole, filled the water bottle with water

We also had to varnish-paint our plate chargers and coasters, but we spent probably $500 on varnish.  Luckily my family had all the tools necessary for the actual work involved, or it would have cost us much more!

Love this thread! I initially tried to DIY my wedding but it was just too much so I ended up only doing a few DIY.

I bought this bird cage and glued flowers to the top and added felt to the bottom with moss and rose petals so the cards wouldn’t fall through.11012986_10153296617424553_6172215393627169746_n (1)

I also DIY’d the escort cards and decor for the table. I bought the manzanita trees and added floral foam to the bottom and fake flowers that matched my color palette.  I also bought a bunch of terrariums and placed half of them with battery operated tealights and the other half with little flowers. I had originally wanted to do the manzanitas for my centerpieces as well but opted for real flowers a month before my wedding.

Omg, I am LOVING everyone’s DIY projects! It all looks so beautiful!

Posting because I’m so excited, we finally started some of our projects over the weekend and I am LOVING the way everything is turning out (it’s true, a coat of spray paint really does make a world of difference). Unfortunately things were pretty dark by the time a lot of our painted things were dry so I was unable to take any photos, but I’m aiming to take some either today or later in the week to share.

Hoping to see more projects from other bees ๐Ÿ™‚

The only DIY I’ve done so far is our chair covers.  The curtains cost me $7 and it covered 10 chairs.  We only need 16 – for the chairs the line up the aisle (8 on each side).  Then the same chairs will be used for my immediate family and my groom’s immediate family’s tables during the reception (in the same venue).

We made one of the curly willow clips for the back of our chairs. It was way easier than I thought it wouled be. 

We also finally finished all the fans for the ceremony. That was a lot. Lol. 

Last on my list is to make my bouquet. The last of the flowers should arrive Friday!!!

I didn’t physically make anything because I’m terrible at stuff like that, but I had a fair amount of fun desiging some print pieces for the day!

soaps

Soap tag for local handmade goat’s milk soap favor (We had a semi destination wedding at my grandfather’s farm in kentucky, these were made by a family friend). My graphic designer friend created them for me, but because I spent 2 hours cutting them all out and tying all the bags closed, I’m counting it ๐Ÿ˜‰
