Quick and Dirty Wedding DIY

by Jenny Bryde 2. July 2012 01:07

While I like to linger on the web for limitless hours, when I'm in the real world, I try to maximize my time and get the biggest bang for my buck.  If you've ever been in a time crunched situation, cough-cough - wedding planning, then you can relate.  I love DIY projects.  Even more love goes to DIY projects that can get done in one sitting!  Simple steps and power-tool free, these wedding DIY projects might just be right for you...

How about this tutorial which is set up to make a rouched tree skirt but could easily be modified to make a base layer of lovely rouched fabric for your centerpieces?  Just slap some candles and/or flowers on top, et voila!  Your guests have something pretty to look at while they toast you.

Or how about this pretty little idea for a bridal or wedding party headpiece.  All it takes is some grosgrain ribbon, spray starch, and a hot glue gun!  Wahoo!

This idea rocks my little world...take any kind of glass container, line it with tissue paper, pop in a battery operated tea light and presto!  Beautiful lighting!
