Yay for finally getting to do another Wedding Wednesday! I love getting to reminisce about my wedding and know how much money we saved by making so many of the decorations instead of buying them. I hope that this inspires you to do the same for your wedding. Today I want to share a few DIY projects that I did for our wedding.
First up DIY Chalkboard Menu
What you need:
- frame (I used an old one but you could buy one)
- chalkboard paint
- spray paint (any color you want)
- chalk and/or chalk makers
First you want to wipe the frame and glass clean of any dust or dirt. Let it dry. Take apart the frame from the glass. I sprayed the frame first but it doesn't have to be done in the same order. Lightly spray to coat the frame until completely covered (about 3 coats should do it). Next do the same with the chalkboard spray. You can buy it in a bucket if you want more to use for something else. Follow the directions for letting it sit before use. Then write away...(like my bridesmaid Sammi)
We used ours for the reception menu but you could use it many ways in the home (chores, to do lists, messages to each other/visitors, etc.)
The second project is DIY Hanging Frames.
What you need:
- Wood frames (can be bought at most craft stores)
- acrylic paint
- sponge brush
- 4x6 and/or 5x7 photos
- wire and clothes pins to hang them
Pretty self explanatory- Paint the frames. (mine took 2 coats) Let them dry. Insert pictures.
Hang and enjoy :) I used our engagement pictures and painted the frames in our wedding colors. I also used 2 frame sizes for more interest.
