Since it is wedding season at the moment, I thought I would put together a few super quick and easy DIY wedding ideas today. My friend’s bridal shower is later this month, so I think weddings and wedding-related events are just kind of on my brain at the moment.
If you’ve ever planned a wedding (or are currently planning a wedding), you know how stressful it can be to add DIY projects to your list of wedding to-dos. But if you’re a DIYer at heart, chances are you can’t be stopped from making a least a couple of small things for the big day. So…I partnered with the folks at Tic Tac to come up with 3 extremely easy (and quick) DIYs that will take you almost no time at all, but will satisfy your DIY wedding craving.
AND if you’re already married or single, you can just as easily use these ideas for a party instead. No wedding necessary. Okay! Let’s jump in…
1. Simple Paper Cake Toppers
Create these super simple cake toppers using decorative paper, wallpaper samples, or sheets of card stock that you’ve painted with your own design. Just draw or trace a shape onto paper, cut it out, glue it to a bamboo skewer and poke the topper into a cake or cupcake.
These are especially cute on small individual cakes, like the one pictured. You could even customize each topper with a monogram or the guest’s names. And they’re great for dinner parties too. Everyone loves getting their own individual little cake.
2. ‘Will you be my bridesmaid’ Bouquets
You guys know I couldn’t resist throwing a flower DIY in here for good measure. I made this bouquet just like this one, only I used decorative wrapping paper, instead of kraft paper. The wrapping paper is from Rifle, in case you were wondering – it’s Happy Stripe. Once the bouquet is wrapped, tie it with string and add a card or leave a secret message inside the paper wrapping, like I did with this DIY.
This would be a cool hostess gift too, if you don’t have a wedding coming up. Or even a birthday gift for a friend.
The exact recipe for this bouquet: 3 stems of Solidago, 3 stems of Snapdragons (1 white and 2 pink or peach), and 1 stem of White Phlox
3. Easy Wedding or Party Favors
Trace and cut a piece of paper large enough to wrap all the way around your favorite Tic Tac packs. I like Strawberry Fields, Freshmints, and Wintergreen. There are quite a few Tic Tac flavors, so you’re bound to find one that fits the color scheme of your wedding (or party).
Use the piece of paper you just cut as a template to trace and cut decorative papers and/or wallpaper samples to the correct size. Then wrap the paper around the container, tape or glue the ends, and add string or twine to finish it in a bow or knot. Wedding favors done. Or party favors.
