Here’s something for all you Starbucks lovers out there! (And no, we don’t mean Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space”)
I’m sure you’ve had your fair share of Starbucks bottles at some point or another. Whether you threw them away, used them as piggy banks or as spice jars–we’ve all encountered them at least once. Being a person who collects all unnecessary things (a problem for all crafters, I would presume?), I have collected at least a dozen of these coffee bottles. I love them.

Our wedding venue is so beautiful that it really doesn’t need much decor. But we wanted a few pieces around to make it extra personalized.
One of our favorite projects that we have ever done is the XL ampersand string art hanging above our bed. Classic Pinterest? Perhaps, but it looks so good and was a snap to make. Plus, it’s a super inexpensive project.
So, we decided to recreate it for our wedding, but instead featuring our wedding hashtag. Mr. Coral is very into social media (it’s what he does for a living, plus he loves live tweeting Panthers games). So, it’s pretty fitting that we push the hashtag on our guests a little bit.
Mr. Coral started out by picking up a 10 inch x 8 foot by 1 inch piece of pine wood. We also grabbed three packs of 1 inch white panel board nails and an XL spool of cotton string in white.
He started by tracing the letters that he wanted onto scrap paper and cutting them out. He then laid them on the board, measured how long it needed to be, and marked the board.

Wedding guestbooks are a tradition so long held that it’s hard to track down exactly when or why they began. One thing is for sure; the typical wedding guestbook is packed up after the reception and stowed away with other wedding memorabilia. Wouldn’t it be great to have something a bit more…personal? We’ve got three projects that won’t bust your budget, ruin your schedule, or simply be tossed in a box only to be looked at every few years. … read more
Do you want to capture your wedding on video, but your budget is too tight to hire a videographer? Getting video of your special day isn’t something that has to break the bank. It’s completely DIY-able – and something a lot of brides-to-be overlook as an affordable memento. … read more
At least for me, the ring box was one of the last projects I finished when preparing for my wedding. It’s such a small detail, so I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something that the guests would barely notice. However, I wanted something that would fit into my wedding theme and aesthetic. … read more
