The rich hues of burgundy, burnt orange and plum combined with the crisp, fresh scent in the air makes autumn one of the most beautiful seasons to host your wedding. There are so many unique, earth-inspired ideas to consider and here at Lace Heaven there is nothing we love more than DIY projects. For couples planning their nuptials for the fall of 2016, here is a list of our top five wedding crafts for the season:
Make autumn inspired boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen for your fall nuptials. Created with silk leaves, roses spray painted in seasonal shades and sprigs of tiny flowers, these boutonnieres are adorable and easy to create! For instructions, click here.
Pumpkin Flower Basket
Easy to find throughout the fall months, purchase a small, pumpkin shaped basket for your flower girl to carry. Leave it orange or paint it to match your wedding colors; white and gold are two of our favorite ideas. Add some lace bows and a touch of greenery and fill the basket with flowers or leaves of red and orange to be tossed as your flower girl leads the way down the aisle. For instructions, click here.
Gilded Leaf Place Cards
Add a pop of color to your seating arrangement with golden, gilded leaves. Collect and dry fallen leaves and paint them gold. Add your guests’ names with a black ballpoint pen and place them atop each table setting for a touch of shimmer. For instructions, click here.
Guest Book Tree
Instead of having guests sign a traditional guest book, opt for a unique option that will remind you of your wedding for years to come. Create a guest book tree – painted in autumn hues – and have your guests sign or add their thumb prints to it. The perfect piece to hang in your home together, have the painting framed after your big day. For instructions, click here.
Pinecone Wedding Favors
Warm your guests with these beautiful and festive pinecone fire starters. The perfect craft for you and fiancé to make together, dip in mixtures shaded in plum, blue and white tones. Add an adorable tag to each and place in a rustic wicker basket. For instructions, click here.
