Wedding planning involves what often seems likes countless to-do lists. From choosing a venue and bridesmaids dresses to deciding whether to have a cake or cupcakes, it’s no easy task. Checking off that to-do list can sometimes become a little overwhelming, to say the least! One thing that can help slow down the process and add some fun: crafts! Brides, grooms, and their families and friends can have fun sitting together and getting crafty for the big day. You can have a wedding filled to the brim with DIY’s or choose to only do a few. One way or the other, it’s up to you! Luckily, crafting up some DIY’s for your wedding day can not only be cost effective, but also give family and friends even more opportunities to come together and help!
Today’s wedding DIY is full of color, just the way we like it! That said, you will need craft markers with a broad range of colors and shades. Painters by Elmers has countless color and marker tip options to help you achieve just the right look for your style. For this DIY, Painters Neons and Brights were used along with their Super Tip Pen. Additional craft materials needed include some twine, four wooden skewers, and one piece of natural brown craft paper cut in half.
The first thing to make is the mini wooden easel. To do this, cut the pointed tips off of the skewers and place all three of the tips together. Next, tie the tips together with some cut twine. Do the same with the fourth skewer, which is cut in half. This time, tie both ends to the parallel legs.
Here comes the fun part! It’s time to begin using the Painters markers to create your wedding favor sign. The colors and designs you choose to create will depend on the theme and style of your wedding. This particular sign’s designs work perfectly with garden and modern earthy themes.
The trick to mastering the doodle is having a clear vision and feel for your design. Practice some lines and shapes beforehand, then let it flow when you start your actual project. I personally found that the neon colored Painters really popped on the colored paper.
Regardless of your design aesthetic, rest assured that white will come in handy when adding those final touches!
Now, it’s time for the easy and cute favors tags. Obviously, these can say whatever your heart desires. Something simple and sweet oughta do the trick, though!
And there you have it! Simple and adorably handmade wedding favor signs that you crafted up all by yourself. The best thing about this DIY project is that everyone can have their very own creative take on it. You get to decide upon different colors or designs, and even brainstorm innovative ways to use the miniature easel for other table decor ideas! What are you waiting for — get your craft on!
