Gold Foil Wedding DIY Ideas
Whether you’re looking to add a little shine or all gold everything, these wedding DIY ideas will do the trick.
A Formal Invitation
This wedding DIY adds a little extra glimmer to your invites (sans the hefty price tag of gold foil stationery). Before you commit, keep in mind this project is fairly simple, but definitely time consuming.
Wrap your bridesmaids’ gifts with a little extra love (and shimmer) using DIY gold foil paper. You’ll see this printing technique repeated throughout quite a few of these ideas.
If you really want to go the extra mile wrapping those gifts, try your hand at these gold foil paper feathers. These pretty little details would also fit in at each place setting for a rustic chic wedding.
Bling for the Ring
Your new rock deserves to shine even when it’s not on your finger. Give your rings a glamorous place to rest with this DIY gold clay jewelry bowl.
If you’re incorporating gold flatware into your table or going for the mixed metals appearance, this wedding DIY is easy to create. You can easily transform plain glass floral vases into metallic masterpieces using gold foil tape.
Textured Table Décor
Instead of foil paper, use gold leaf adhesive to achieve the look of this stylish centerpiece. For a rustic reception, rose gold or copper leaf sheets can be used as an alternative color.
Pot of Gold
Use gold foil printable paper and glitter to add extra glam to any terracotta pot. This wedding DIY can be used for wedding favors, escort cards or even a unique centerpiece.
Mylar’s Midas Touch
Similar in appearance to gold leaf or foil paper, mylar can be used to make an adorable pom pom garland. You can reuse this decoration for bridal showers, dessert bars and even the holidays.
This fondant cake combines gold details with one of our favorite trends of the year, watercolor. It adds plenty of eye candy to any dessert table all on its own.
Words of Love
Use gold foil paper to transfer lettering onto a canvas for some fun photo booth décor. This DIY is a great way to display a technicolor palette at your wedding and can be reused as art in your home.
You don’t need a lot of gold to make a big impact. But if you’re really going for glam, create a wedding backdrop with gold specks (or reach out to your wedding planner for assistance). Depending on the complexity of the design, you could use gold foil paper to transfer a print. For a larger canvas with a more abstract look like the one shown here, metallic paint could be a more practical idea.
If sewing is up your alley, foil your fabric for some glitzy bridesmaid gifts. This DIY reflects trendy greenery (hello, Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year!) but you can pick different patterns to reflect each of your ladies’ personal styles.
All That Glitters
Add some luxe to a rustic theme using these golden bottles. This winter styled shoot incorporated a mix of lavender bath salts with gold accents for creative wedding favors.
Show off your new monogram during the holidays with this DIY ornament. For a festive holiday wedding, display these as table numbers at your reception.
For That Romantic Glow
As wedding favors or an alternative to mercury candle votives, add these metallic candles to your tables. This wedding DIY makes great gifts for the holidays, too.
