DIY Wedding: Fall Inspired Centerpiece
Published: October 7, 2011
With fall in the air, it is easy to get wrapped up in autumn themed wedding inspiration but today's DIY project is a bit more seasonally versitale. Easy and low cost, as always, this project uses standard hurricane vases and votives (available at any area craft store) and then affixes sticks of various sizes and shapes with a little glue. While hot glue is my go-to for projects like these, you may also want to consider a more general craft adhesive specifically designed for wood and glass. A pair of pruning shears may also come in handy to cut the sticks to size (remember safety first, wear work gloves just in case!). While the example below showcases a basic design, I suggest adding a ribbon, raffia, or monogramed paper detail to tie into your wedding colors. For guests tables you may even consider tucking loose roses or magnolia leaves as part of a cluster of vases for a more natural or woodsy look. This said you could easily transition this look for any season, depending on how it is accessorized (and then use these as part of your home decor). The options are endless.
It is always good to remember that just because you made your own centerpieces or wedding decor, you do not have to take responsibility for set-up and take down. This is where a wedding coordinator can come in handy. You save big by DIYing your wedding... then hand off the logistical duties to pro so you and your family and relax on wedding day. Obviously bringing a planner on from the get go will also help with designing the overall look of the wedding, assisting with wedding vendor research and keeping your budget on track. But I bet you already know that... so, what are you waiting for? Happy crafting (and wedding planner researching!).
Another great idea from a craft blogger, Fossil~Life~Style. Love it!
