If you're a crafty bride looking for some DIY ideas for your upcoming wedding, may we suggest: GO SHOPPING NOW! Post Christmas is a great time to go load up on beautiful things that can be incorporated into your wedding. You may see ornaments or garland, but we see name cards, napkin ties and more! Many of these items are 50% or more off. Be sure to cruise by Crate & Barrel, Target, and HomeGoods to stock up on things that are beautiful year round.
These gold glittered branches would be a gorgeous addition to an altar.
These small sparkly leaves are only $1 and would make floral arrangements pop!
We loved this icy looking garland. This could be used around the base of a floral arrangement or cake stand.
Who doesn't love a good wreath? This golden one would look gorgeous on some barn doors.
These gold leaves make us think of a fall wedding. They would be great as napkin ties or incorporated into seating plan.
