Some things you just can't buy. Some things you can buy if you wanted to take out a second mortgage on your parents' home. And some things you can simply make. DIY wedding projects are so much fun because you save a bundle of money while creating something totally you for your wedding. Projects are also a really great way to include others in your wedding plans. Maybe your future mother-in-law is crafty with a sewing machine. Maybe your cousins would love to come over and have pizza as payment for cutting out hundreds of paper flowers.
Today I'll be featuring three really great DIY projects that you can tackle at home! These projects come from a website called The Sweetest Occasion which has all kinds of crafty projects for the everyday guy or gal.
First up we have a ring pillow that is totally stitchable. They used some striped fabric, but you could use just about any that you love.
You will need the following supplies:
one yard of fabric
twill tape or ribbon
Next we have a gorgeous ruffled garland that you could make for any number of uses. It could be a swag for a chair, banister, or light fixture. I even think you could pull this off as a belt!
You will need:
4 yards of fabric
Thread and needle
Twill tape or ribbon
And finally, DIY paper pinwheels which would be totally fun as decor during a spring or summer wedding or as party favors for the kids.
You will need:
Paper cut into 6" squares
Straws (optional for handles)
