Festively Frugal: 5 Winter-Wedding DIY tricks to try!

It may be getting a little cooler, but there's nothing stopping your big day from being hot-to-trot, with these fantastic DIY makes. There's something for everyone, so whether you're new to the handmade game or regularly wield a glue-gun, take your pick and get creative!

1. Dreamy Chandelier

These gorgeously whimsical chandeliers from Home-Edit are crazy-simple to make and cheap too! Check out the tutorial here, and take note of the added wow-factor when they're lit from inside...

2. Table-Top Fire Pits

What is winter without toasted marshmallows? These mini fire pits from Something Turquoise are perfect for keeping your guests entertained (and joyfully filled with warm treats) at their tables. They're an easy make, just be sure to buy the right kind of fuel: Chafing Fuel Gel - as it's non-toxic and used specifically by caterers!

3. Luscious Wedding Wreath

Now this is SERIOUSLY festive, in-fact, I might just make one for myself this Christmas. If you are using them at your big day, why not make a selection of different sizes and hang them as a back-drop? Or just make one absolute stunner for the church or top table! The tutorial is over on the Coco Wedding Venues Blog and was created by Flowers by Breige. Click here for the walk-through.

4. Epic Leather Jackets

Personalised biker jackets started making an appearance in 2017, but there is no sign of them going anywhere fast. As far as I'm concerned, the absolute front-runner in DIY kits is Bash Creative Design, and you can pick up your own here for around £50 plus shipping. Plus, if your other half is feeling left out from all the fun, a couples range is being released soon! Yay!
