While I’m away on vacation, Amie has kindly stepped in to post some DIYs for their upcoming rustic shabby chic wedding—which happens to be just 3 months from today! Follow all the Pankratz wedding adventures here.

Hi guys!  This is Amie — Sam is my wonderful Matron of Honor for my upcoming wedding this November. I know she’s mentioned my upcoming nuptials on her blog before, so I was honored when she asked me to share with you guys while she is away touring the Northeast!

Here are five fun DIY projects I plan on making for the wedding.

1. DIY Redneck Wine Glasses

I’ve always loved these glasses and when I found out just how cheap they are to make, I knew I had to have them  as my wedding favors!  This is actually the only project I have completed so far and I was so impressed with how easy to follow Mavis Butterfield’s DIY How to Make Redneck Wine Glasses tutorial was.

2. DIY Personalized Wooden Ring Bearer Box

I’m not a big fan of the traditional ring bearer pillow, so I set out on a search for something a little more unique. I came across this cute little box on Pinterest and I fell in love! You can find the DIY tutorial here on The Knotty Bride.


3. DIY Vintage Table Numbers

Long before I stumbled upon this tutorial, I planned on framing burlap for our table numbers. When I saw this, I knew it was just perfect! Check out Weddingbells DIY tutorial here.


4. DIY Rustic Wood Sign

We’re getting married at a beautiful estate in the hills of Temecula Valley. Although beautiful, I have a feeling it may be a little hard for our guests to find. So, we decided that it would be a good idea to create a few signs to guide our guests to the venue. I found so many wonderful tutorials for DIY signs and  have decided to combine a couple of them to get the look we’re going for. You can check these out at Lil Blue Boo and the House of Smith’s.


5. DIY Vintage Framed Chalkboards

This may be a little weird, but I love chalkboards and I am so excited to incorporate them into our big day. We plan on using chalkboards through out the wedding and I found the perfect tutorial on how to make our own on the Lisa Leonard Blog, check it out here!
