A Christmas season wedding is such a delight to decorate! For starters, there are holiday decor elements everywhere you look at this time of year. So, with just some crafty additions, you can DIY or semi-DIY your wedding centerpieces, signage, candlescapes, wreaths, favors and more! For inspiration, we’re sharing 5 decorations from our own sets that would be easy and budget-friendly DIY projects for a Christmas wedding.
Holiday Wedding Decorations You Can DIY
From pretty wrapped vases to glittery favors, make something special for your wedding! There are many ways to save on a holiday event by making your own decorations and favors!
Roses in Fabric-wrapped Globe Vases
Roses, carnations, or any red blooms create an instant yuletide look for centerpieces. Place small bunches in mini globe vases, then bundle each vase up in holiday-hued organza wraps. So simple to make, but you’re most welcome to visit our tutorial here.
Leafy Seating Chart
For wedding signage like your guest seating chart, add a DIY border of leaf cutouts (or a ready-made holly garland) to a framed cork board. Here, we created a trellis design using lengths of ribbon for a garden or vineyard wedding. But you could use vintage Christmas cards, little ornaments, or sprigs of winter berries as accents for a holiday-themed chart.
Wreath Favor Display
Package your wedding favors in festive Christmas colors and patterns, then arrange them on ready-made wreaths laid out on your favors display table. If the favors are small and light enough, you could hang the wreath “favor holders” on the walls or suspend them from the ceiling with ribbon.
Recycled Bottle Candlescape
Bring that holiday glow to your wedding venue with groupings of recycled jam jars holding floating candles. For a finishing touch, surround each grouping with a ring of twisted raffia decorated with pine cones and berries.
DIY Beaded Light Bulb Ornaments
Finally, give quaint hand-crafted items as wedding favors. Here, we show how used light bulbs can be transformed into unique, bead-encrusted ornaments for your guests to take home. They’ll certainly remember your Christmas wedding every time they use these!
