My DIY projects
Posted 03 May 2010 - 11:48 AM
I have done a couple of my own DIY projects for this wedding, so I thought I would share and maybe it will give inspiration to someone! I never thought I was creative/talented enough for DIY, but it's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it!
I started with my DIY invitations for the DW and the AHR: bought from Michaels and added my own coloured ribbons, seashells, flowers, etc to make personalized:
I DIY my own guest book and pen, was bought plain white by my MOH and FSIL, but I decorated it with our wedding color ribbons to match the invitations. I also used a seashell and glued a ribbon on and added some sand for holding the rings. My bouquets were not DIY, they were made by an etsy seller - jdleggans. I wish I would have found the DIY part of this forum beforehand though, because I think I could have made this bouquet myself and saved myself a little cash that way. Oh well! I love them!
My MOH also bought me a garter, but I wanted to make it more "beachy" so I added a seashell.
Here are some of my DIY (Vistaprint) purchases - all for free - only paid $30 for shipping:
magnets, business cards (for maraca tags), and welcome postcards for OOTs bags.
I also bought some "I do" stickers on ebay and they will be my something blue!
And this is my favourite DIY so far, my t-shirts! After looking around for rhinestones at Michaels, and realizing how expensive and time consuming it would be, I asked a seller on etsy to make the transfers for me, but I picked out my shirts and ironed them on this weekend. I'm very happy with how they turned out!
Okay, well that's it for now! I hope you girls like it!

Question about the free stuff from Vista print..was it a promotion? I love the tote bag so cute and useful for the beach. Love it.
