Friday DIY Roundup: Gold

Fridays are good days for collections and summaries, so I thought I’d introduce a new regular column for the last day of the week: DIY roundups.
And to make it a bit more fun, I will pick a theme for each roundup… let’s start today with my current obsession, “gold”.

An absolute trend at the moment, there are so many possibilities to add a little shine and shimmer to your wedding:


One: Goldleaf paper maché bowls by Kelli Murray. Loving the polka dots!
Two: Gilded notebooks from Eat Sleep Cuddle. Would make cute bridesmaids gifts!
Three: Gold leaf monograms from Renee Hong via The Knotty Bride. I can see them as wedding displays or even table centers.

Four: Golden staples from Twig and Thistle. This must be the easiest DIY ever!
Five: Gold envelope edges from 100 Layer Cake. Such a great way to add a little sparkle to your invitations.
Six: Gilded thank you cards from Camille Styles. Love the glitter!

Seven: Gold sequin photo booth from Oh Happy Day. Wow!
Eight: Modern gold garlands from Hank and Hunt via Brancoprata. Make 15 of these and you have an awesome ceremony backdrop!
Nine: Washi tape candles from A Merry Mishap. So easy and cute for the tables!


And if you still haven’t seen enough sparkle and shine, check out these gilded bottles, this metallic centerpiece sack (love this one), or this 5 minute DIY with gold nail polish.

I do hope you got your DIY fix for the day… have a good weekend!
