DIY Projects for Winter Weddings

Whether you’re looking for fun alternatives to traditional décor or itching to get just a little bit crafty with your wedding day prep, DIY projects can really take the cake. Your wedding day is all about you and the personal details you love – and what’s more personal than putting your mark on those details with your own two hands? I firmly believe that bite-sized projects can be one of the most memorable ways to plan a wedding day; especially in the middle of winter when cozying up inside a nice warm home is an effective recipe for a good weekend. Just picture it: you, your ever-supportive bridesmaids, a bottle of champagne (or respective mugs of hot cocoa) and all the silver glitter you can find. But that’s enough talk. Let’s get down to DIY business.

This ornament bouquet is lovely, non-traditional and just metallic enough to give off holiday-inspired glam without feeling Christmas-y – and would also make for a fun table centerpiece.

Whimsical and rustic, mason jar snow globes are perfect for table décor and can be tailored to include your favorite winter items. Bottle brush trees? Check. Miniature snow-covered homes? Check. Rudolph? Sure, why not!

I’m a sucker for glitter this time of year, especially in metallic tones. These silver glitter ornaments are great as favors, décor and repurposed on your Christmas tree.

Cocoa packets are nice, but these instant mocha mix favors are even better.  Personalize the label and you’ve got customized favors for your wedding day.

These handmade fire starters are cute favors but I’d love to see them as a favor and seating card two-in-one. You could arrange them on a table near your venue’s entrance, or leave them as favors at each place setting for a personal touch.
