Fall Wedding Craft Projects


Making things for your own wedding can be a fun way to put your own personal stamp on the day. Diy projects are also a great way to help keep your wedding budget from running amok. Many of the best projects tie in with the season of the wedding; here are some wonderful craft ideas for fall weddings.

Fall is actually one of the easiest seasons for a crafter. There are many natural materials available to work with as well as to use for inspiration for paper crafts. You can sprinkle autumnal diy elements throughout your wedding to make it more special and beautiful.

Pumpkins are one of the favorite decorating elements for fall. A very simple idea that anyone can do is to hollow out fresh pumpkins and fill them with flowers like mums and mini sunflowers for the reception centerpieces. If you like the general concept of pumpkin vessels but are not using the traditional fall colors for your wedding, substitute elegant small white pumpkins for the classic orange variety. A group of three white pumpkins filled with miniature red roses or purple asters would be darling centerpieces for an upscale fall celebration.

The wedding favors are another thing that a creative bride can easily make herself. For a fall wedding, think warm and cozy. A little packet including things like cinnamon sticks and mulling spices for apple cider would be a cute parting gift, as long as it is attractively packaged. In fact, that is a tip about wedding favors in general: they do not need to be expensive or elaborate as long as the packaging looks stylish. Put your cinnamon and spices in a clear glassine bag. Fold over the top and seal with a custom sticker (you can even print them yourself) that has instructions for how to make the perfect mulled cider. For a final touch, create paper leaves to attach to the bag with a sweet thank you from the bride and groom. If you would like, you could create some continuity by tying the same little paper leaves to the bridesmaid jewelry boxes when you give your attendants their gifts before the wedding. It is a nice little fall motif to carry throughout your event.

Autumn is the season for fresh crisp apples unlike those you get at the store the rest of the year. You can take advantage of this by using them as a jumping off point for some creative projects. For instance, a paper leaf tied to the stem of a real apple is a great look for the escort cards. The apples will look very nice lined up on a table at the entrance to your reception, and best of all, once they have found their seats, the guests can enjoy snacking on the apples. A cute variation on this idea would be to make escort cards in the shape of little red apples and hang them off a tree (either a real one, or a tabletop version made from branches in a base) at the door of the reception.

If you are a serious knitter, one final idea for a special craft for your wedding would be to knit a lacy wrap for each of your bridesmaids. (The smaller your bridal party, the more feasible this idea would be, obviously.) It is a nice touch for an outdoor wedding when the weather is likely to turn chilly. A handknit wrap paired with a nice piece of bridesmaid jewelry like crystal earrings would be a very special way to show your appreciation for your friends.

There are many more wonderful things that you can make for a fall wedding. Use your creativity and think about your particular favorite craft, whether it is scrapbooking, origami, or something else. It is such a nice touch to have elements at your wedding that you have put your heart into creating.
