Borrow this DIY idea…

August 31st, 2009 @ 4:03 pm by Wiley Valentine

Here are some of my favorite DIY ideas I have spotted around recently. Take a look, borrow, change them a bit to be your own, and voila! Handmade touches for your wedding day…

These adorable picnic areas would make the cutest lounge area, forget the sleek white modern furniture, go for a more relaxed vibe with color coordinated pillows and blankets in the grass!

Photo via Once Wed. I am absolutely loving the look of these apple crates on the wall. Like shadow boxes. Photo via Style Me Pretty. I am a huge fan of the cheese platter, and this one is absolutely perfect. Spread out on a long wooden table with chalkboard name plates. Perfection! Photo via Style Me Pretty. The polaroids strung on a clothesline act as a guest book that everyone can enjoy at the reception. Photo via Style Me Pretty. Chalkboard used as a menu or bar menu…lovely. Photo via Style Me Pretty. Loving the vintage hankies that are used as napkins, seating cards and favors!! Love that! Photo via the Nichols. Lastly the sugar rimmed mason jars for your signature cocktail have the perfect blend of casual and chic for my taste! Photo via the Nichols.

So many fantastic ideas! We’re having a wine-cheese party at our apartment and I plan on doing those little chalkboards to identify the cheeses. Great idea.
