Ornamental DIY Wedding Decor!

…Turn Ornament Ideas Into Decor Ideas!

Planning for the holidays and for your wedding?  Perhaps you can take the work you put into your holiday and use it for your wedding as well!  After reading THIS article, I thought I’d share with you my favorite homemade ornaments-turned-wedding-decor ideas from Martha Stewart.  Just click on the name of each ornament to learn how to easily make them:

Floating Ornaments  

 Sure, you could decorate your tree with these, buy why stop there?  Make several in the colors of your wedding and hang them low from your reception ceiling, perhaps above the dance floor or from the top of the bar:

Snowy Balloon Ornaments 

Imagine these lovely ornaments inside bowls or vases as centerpieces for your tables, in the colors of your wedding or ones complimentary to your flowers.  Or, hang them from trees outside or inside, to fancy up your ceremony or reception entrance!

Ribbon Bow Ornaments 

 These lovely ornaments could instead be created to decorate your table settings at your reception.  Just place them on top of each plate to add a pop of color!

Button Wreath Ornament 

These ornaments could be used in your wedding colors to hang behind your chairs at the ceremony or reception, or to hang on the side of pews.  Or, you could make button garland!  Just thread a long string of buttons and hang the garland over the front of your head table.  Decorate  doors, chairs, the bar, anywhere!  If you love the button idea, why not create a button theme?  Sprinkle several buttons in your wedding colors over tables, like confetti.  Place in the bottom of flower vases instead of rocks.  Dare I say it?  Cute as a button!

Tinsel Snowflakes 

Planning a winter wedding?  Create these snowflake ornaments in whatever colors you’d like, then place them in different spots such as the corner of the guestbook table, or on the table of favors.  Heck, you could even use these as favors!  Then each of your guests would have an ornament to take home and hang on their tree, year after year, remembering your amazing day.

  4. Those snowy white “balloons” are perfect for winter. Hmmm, the wedding isn’t for another year but I’m thinking holiday party decorations. 🙂
