• {DIY} Holiday + Winter Wedding Decor DIYs

    Tis the season to get crafy, and there are so many great holiday DIYs out there for either your home or holiday party, or you can totally incorporate them into a winter or Christmas wedding.  Here are a few of my favorites:

    {washi tape ornaments}
    {go to poppytalk for full DIY}

    I love ornaments.  I like to collect them and make them and add to my collection every year.  These washi tape ornaments are so easy, fun, and really pretty.  Hang them on your tree, give them as gifts, or use them in your wedding decor and give them as favors!

    {mason jar snow globes}
    {go here for a how-to and here for photo credit}
    I love the idea of using old mason or jelly jars to make a homemade snow globe.  It makes it even more fun that I’ve seen these sold at Anthropologie for like $30 each.  You can totally make your own, and make them more personal to you, and for way cheaper!  You could make one for each table if you wanted to incorporate them into your wedding.

    {recycled magazine glitter Christmas tree} 
    {go to Martha Stewart for full DIY}
    This one is so fun because you can recycle those old magazines you have lying around, and make fun glittery decor at the same time.  And all you really need are the magazines, and whatever spray paint and glitter (or just glitter spray paint) that you want to use!  SO EASY!  These could make really cool centerpieces with some pine trimmings and candles on your winter wedding tables too.
    {pinecone garland}
    {for full DIY instructions go to Design*Sponge}
    This one is the perfect mantle adornment for the holidays, and would also look fantastic as a natural “altar” for your ceremony or to hang on the front of a head table or dessert table at your winter wedding.
    {snow luminaries}
    What could be more elegant, or more simple, than these snow luminaries?  They are snow, a candle, and a jar.  And what is that snow, you ask?  Why, it is epsom salt!  Cheap and easy to find, and looks like glittery snow.  Make these for your porch and light before your holiday party or on Christmas Eve to welcome Santa (if you don’t have a chimney).  If incorporating into your winter wedding, you could literally use these everywhere.  And you really wouldn’t need much more than this to decorate with.  Line your ceremony aisle, put them all over in behind your “altar” area, and then transport them to your reception and put them on your tables.  
    If you like these holiday DIY’s, go follow me on Pinterest where I have a collection of over 50 ideas in my “ho ho ho” board!  But follow all my boards for lots of great wedding inspiration too.
    So, which is your favorite holiday DIY?  Do you have a favorite that didn’t make my list?  Tell me about it and maybe I’ll include it in my next list of faves, which is coming at you next week!
