Floral-inspired Wedding Gifts You Can DIY
When handmade means “made by your hands,” that makes a gift truly special! See which of these floral-inspired crafty projects you can manage – and will delight your soon-to-be-wed friends.
Gifts of Art
If the couple are art lovers, surprise them with a couple of marble art prints (1) they can proudly add to their home decor. These have a real mod artsy look, but take just minutes to make – with no painting skills required!
Or for a more country, rustic accent piece, why not a minimalist frame of floating leaves and flowers (5)? These would be lovely lined up on a mantel or ledge, or suspended in front of windows.
If it’s home entertaining your friends enjoy, trays are always most welcome. Try crafting a lovely floral decoupaged tray (2) made from a papier-maché tray (you may use a wooden one instead) and cutouts from floral-print gift wrap.
Or assemble a frame turned tray (6) by adding a cabinet or drawer handle to each side and then pressing your choice of floral wallpaper, a photo, or an art print under a sheet of glass.
To serve guests in style, gift the couple with hand-painted floral wine glasses (3) that would be just the thing for a spring patio party or any garden gathering. While, for similar outdoor occasions, give them a set of pressed flower coasters (4) made from clear-glass and white ceramic tiles to balance cocktails and juice glasses on.

This Fair Trade folk art-patterned applique cushion cover (1) would instantly perk up any living space, while this whimsical butterfly and flower-themed wool table runner (2) hand-embroidered in wool threads on a cotton backing would be gorgeous on a dining table or sideboard. Or a piece like this “Blue Sky” handpainted wall mirror (3) would make an elegant statement gracing an entryway.
Gifts of Glass
Practical and truly pretty, this round mosaic Dragonfly Garden Platter (4), available via Amazon, is a one of a kind piece made of hand-cut glass tile on light-weight wood.
While for a true statement piece, give an authentic Murano Glass Millefiori Fazzoletto Bowl (5) handmade in Venice, Italy and available via Amazon.
