For your wedding, you want everything to be perfect. You also want your guests to love their party favors or other wedding keepsakes. There are lots of ideas to make your own wedding keepsake. Let’s look at some great wedding keepsake crafts.
First, a traditional keepsake is photos. Print out tons of photos. Be creative and print them in black and white and sepia tones. They will look great. Some even look better in black and white than in color. Buy a frame and decorate it. It can be with your wedding colors, or just things that you both love. You can also have your future husband make a frame for you. He can engrave things onto the sides and really make it his and yours. Put large and small pictures on the tables. It will be a great way for your guests to look at you. Also, include pictures that were from when you were young. Don’t just include the last few years.
Another idea is to decorate a flower pot. You will need a centerpiece and this is a great part of a centerpiece and something that you can use to decorate your home with after the wedding. Get a plain pot from your local craft store. Any size that you want or get a bunch of different sizes. You can also decorate the plate it sits on or not if you want. It is completely up to you and it looks great both ways. Decorate the pots with different things.
You can decorate the flower pot with mostly fabric. Completely cover the flowerpot making sure the ends of the fabric are going inside the pot or on the very bottom. You don’t want anything showing. Make sure the fabric is bunchy and not tight. Glue it down with a hot glue gun. Add some ribbon on the outside. Use colors of fabric that are wedding like or your wedding colors.
You can also decorate a flower pot with ribbon or fringe. Use embellishments that you can hot glue onto the pot or paint decorations on the pot. Use wedding themes or colors that you like or are using for your wedding reception. Paint the pot also before you put on the ribbon and embellishments.
You can also paint and stamp a flower pot. If you are really good at painting this is a great way to show off your talents. You can make each one different or the same. Use stamps to enhance a plain pot or one that was painted in same colors.
Another great idea is to create a shadow box. Use things that you will be using for your wedding or that you did for your wedding. Use a couple pictures but also include things like rose petals and flowers that you used at your wedding. You can also use these for centerpieces.
A wedding is one of the most important days of your life. Don’t let it be forgotten by not keeping anything or making the memories special. Try out some of these crafts for your wedding.
