Happy Tuesday! There are few things I (Emma here!) love more than DIY projects turned heartfelt gifts, which is why I’m excited to share our exclusive new DIY project with you today. Our DIY wedding hankie can be tied around your bridesmaid’s bouquet as a wrap, placed in her clutch purse as a personalized accessory, or wrapped around a jewelry gift + tied with ribbon as functional, re-usable gift wrap. It can be wrapped in a ribbon and gifted to your mom, grandma, or aunt (to catch those joyous tears). And, it can be placed in your own clutch purse just in case you need it during the ceremony. Hankies are inexpensive (around $4 for a pack of six) and its uses are endless. This DIY wedding hankie project costs little out of pocket, requires little know-how (beginners: rejoice!), and there is almost no clean-up. Plus, you’ll have an excuse to buy a few new crafting projects for your DIY arsenal: I swear, these little alphabet stamps are used by me almost daily. So, if you’re ready to get started, read on to find out how to craft these beautiful bridesmaid hankies just in time for those joyous tears! Enjoy!
