Are you looking for easy DIY decoration ideas for your spring wedding? Making your own decorations is both fun and economical. It’s also a great way to bring friends and family together to make decorations before your big day. If you’ve always loved crafting with your mother, setting aside a little time for the two of you to work on wedding decorations may be the perfect way to reminisce together. You can plan a similar day with your mother-in-law or invite your bridesmaids to an early decorating party. In the end, you’ll love saving money and seeing the fruits of your labor once they are all put together.
To help get you get started with DIY decoration making, here are several ideas that are perfect for a spring wedding.
Wedding Card Box
Most brides and grooms have some sort of wedding card collection box they set out at the reception table. These boxes are often purchased ready-made from stores that sell other craft items, but it’s actually quite easy to make your own. They can be as simple or complicated as you want to them to be, ranging from an ornately wrapped cardboard box, to a stained or painted hardwood box. With either option, you’ll have a beautiful addition for your gift table.
Calligraphy Wooden Wedding Signs
Calligraphy is popular, especially when combined with beautiful hardwood signs and fresh flowers. Wooden signs can be used to provide directions, to welcome your guests, or to display photos of you and your soon-to-be spouse. The uses for wooden signs are almost endless. Whatever purpose you ultimately dream up for your signs, adding calligraphy is easy with stencils or cutouts. There are easy step-by-step calligraphy kits available at most craft stores.
Bride and Groom Picture Table Numbers
Not everyone has assigned seating at their weddings, but it’s essential to number your tables if you do. Instead of merely using cards with printed numbers, try incorporating photos of the bride and groom as a personalized alternative. Ask your parents for pictures of both of you as one-year-olds, two-year-olds, three-year-olds, and so on. The photos you collect can then be used to correspond to the numbers on each table so that your guests can literally see you “grow up” together as the table numbers increase.
Fabric Flower Garlands
Love hanging decorations? Regardless of whether your wedding is indoors or outdoors, fabric flower garlands are a nice touch. Making fabric flower garlands is easy and you’ll love how they look once they are strung together. You can also customize this decoration to fit your wedding by selecting fabric colors that match your theme and color combinations. You can also reuse them again for other events in the future.
Flower crowns are a DIY decoration that are both beautiful and stylish. Whether you choose to use faux flowers or freshly cut flowers is up to you. Just wrap a little floral tape around a bundle of flowers and you’re good to go! These flower crowns make amazing additions to wedding centerpieces, or they can be hung on chairs and doors as a decorative accent. As an added perk, your guests will have a blast wearing them throughout the reception and taking selfies.
