Rustic Wedding Crafts

25 Jun

I really wish I have had more time for blogging….but the big day is keeping me pretty busy as of late. I am not a neat, creative and crafty person by nature…but then Pinterest came along. Every day I thank the lord that this doesn’t apply to me:

Funny Confession Ecard: I had my wedding before I had Pinterest.

I sound corny and cliché, but I am trying to create the ‘rustic country’ look for my wedding. I know, I know…unoriginal…leave me alone- it’s my wedding not yours. But I hope it will be cute….. Here is some stuff I’ve been working on.

I bought an old chalkboard at an antique place that I am planning on using for this:

Here’s what it looked like to begin with-

It was ten dollars!!!

We painted it white

Another idea is the banner for the sweetheart table:

This tutorial was so easy!!! And that’s saying something…I usually mess things up.

It came out!!  I have yet to string it together so you have to wait to see the finished product.

Another thing was the escort cards, which I’m not finished with yet. Here’s my inspiration:

To make the key tags look ‘vintage’, I brushed them with Olde English furniture polish until they get that faded look. Takes a couple of tries until you get the hang of it.

My mom (who has better handwriting than me) will write the guests’ names in calligraphy. I have fancy tack board things that I am attaching them to and setting up near the entrance of the venue.

These table numbers weren’t really inspired by anything, besides the chalkboard theme!

They were easy and inexpensive.

Annnnd we’re still working on the centerpieces. More on that later.

Thank you Pinterest!!!! What would I do without you….. I am going to go into a dark depression when I cannot pin wedding stuff anymore. Until August 2nd…I’m pinning away.

What wedding crafts have you found on Pinterest??? Let me know what I can add!!!

    Those look fantastic!!! I am also having a ‘rustic country wedding’!! So I am with you! I love all the ideas you have. I’m thinking lots of chalkboard paint is in my future

    I’m going to have mason jars with chalk tags for guests to write their name on and then they will have their cup for the night! 🙂

    So cute! I wish Pinterest was around when I got married. I feel like I probably would have gone a little more crazy than I already did but it would have been a little easier to do so!
