Here are some of my DIY favorites:
CAKE STAND BORDER
I love paper, and all of the many forms it takes. This pretty cake stand border is such an easy way to dress up an otherwise simple cake, and all it costs is the price of paper and a pair of scissors. For complete DIY instructions go to Craftstylish.
FAVORITE DIY WEDDING
This is one of those weddings that comes together so perfectly, you would never know that the bride did almost everything herself – and on a reasonable budget! It doesn’t hurt that one of my favorite photographers (Punam Bean Photography) captured it all on film. See more photos of this DIY wedding here.
CREPE PAPER FLOWERS
Not only are these beautiful, but they won’t wilt, so you can make them as far in advance of your wedding as you’re able, and they will stay a fresh keepsake for you or your guests long after the wedding is over.
