Wedding Fever: DIY Wedding Crafts With Leisure Arts

 

Hey Craft Family! 

Wedding season is year-round, and we know how hard it can be to plan and execute the perfect wedding. Catering, the venue, the dress, the invitations, it can all be very overwhelming! That’s why this week, we’ve compiled a list of ideas from our arsenal of craft knowledge.  With these books, we have no doubt in our minds that with our help, you can have the DIY wedding of your dreams! Let’s get started.

 

For The Big Day

Handmade Wedding – #7323 

Handmade Wedding

As one of our newer books on the market, this is the go-to book for all wedding things! From personalized Mr. and Mrs. Décor, to colorful centerpieces, this book is a one-stop-shop to having a better wedding than your siblings before you (always strive to be the best).

Here’s a mood board to sum up the kinds of crafts you can make.

Our Favorite Craft

The book has some great ideas like the “Honey Fund” and personalized table décor, but our true favorite is this idea: 

Sign A Stone

It’s a guest entry jar full of stones, and when guests sign in, they take a stone and sign it for the happy couple, as a “light” on their path to happiness. This idea would be even better if you got glow in the dark markers, so they can really light up!

 

 

The Wedding Shower

Wedding Showers - #6591

Wedding Showers Cover

This book is perfect for the couple that becomes so focused on the event itself, that they forget to plan for the small steps along the way. The wedding shower could be just as important as the wedding itself, so of course you should decorate it to the max!

Here’s another mood board to sum up what’s inside.

The ideas can work for any style of wedding shower, but from the mood board it would probably work best for an outdoor event.

 

Our Favorite Craft

Wedding Shower Flowers

The best craft of the bunch? Flower vases made from recycled alcohol bottles. This ideas is both cute and environmentally friendly, and you can take the new uses home and use them for everyday occasions!

 

Glitz and Glam : Florals!

Glam Wedding Florals - #6591

Glam Wedding Florals Cover

Speaking of Flowers! The best part of wedding decorations are the flowers, hand down. So of course, we have a book specifically for creating the glitzy and glamorous florals your wedding deserves.

Here’s a mood board so you can see what we're talking about.

B-E-A utiful! Right? This book has a huge range of florals based on what kind of wedding you're planning. There are simple and small baubles, and grand and glittery gestures, multiple styles that fit any wedding. 

 

Our Favorite Craft

This is a really tough one, because it ended up being a tie between these two.

The creativity in both of these bouquets are wonderful, and either one would give your wedding tables a storybook aesthetic, without it feeling too cookie cutter.

 

Extras

While those books are the cream of the crop for wedding planning, we wanted to recommend some titles that would be extra helpful along the way:
