Easy Wedding DIYs to Try (+ Cheap, Too!)

1. DIY Paint Chip Wedding Garland

First, take a peek at this DIY paint chip wedding garland. I swear, I’ve seen paint chips used in so many projects. I wouldn’t be surprised if hardware stores started charging for them. I love this particular use of paint chips to make a banner… what do you think?

4. DIY Pinecone Firestarter Favors

My aunt used to give away homemade firestarters as Christmas gifts to the adults every year and my parents loved them! Nothing else says wintertime quite like a cozy fire.

5. DIY Mason Jar Photo Frame / Candle Holder

This is a great way to display vintage wedding photographs of your parents (from their wedding day) or display photos for your table numbers. Just place a photo in a mason jar and place one of these behind it for a cozy flickering effect.

6. DIY Mason Jar Wedding Emergency Kit

Great gift idea for the bride-to-be: everything she needs “just in case” on her wedding day! I like how it’s placed in a glass mason jar so it’s easy to find what she needs when she needs it.
