Attention DIY-ers! This post is for you! WedLoft recently rounded up a list of 101 DIY Wedding Projects. We covered the board and provided you with DIY ideas for all areas of your wedding … all in one place!

Today, however, I’m going to ask you to work a little. DON’T WORRY! I’m not asking you to do any heavy lifting, research or even to get out of your chair. I’m simply asking that you let your imagination wander a bit. The 10 DIY ideas I have for you today were not designed as wedding projects. And so …I’d like you to Think Outside the Box! Each of these projects can easily be transformed to fit seamlessly into your wedding. These are my ideas for working these projects into a wedding, but if you have others … please share in the comments! I’d love to hear what you think :)

1. Heart Shaped Photo Display – I saw this project shown as bedroom wall decor on MarieClaireIdees but I think it would be wonderful for a wedding.  If you have an empty wall space to fill, this is certainly an exciting way to do it!  It would be a great way to display engagement photos, photos of you and your love throughout your relationship, or even pictures of wedding guests! If your venue doesn’t want you putting holes in the wall (which is a definite possibility), this look can be achieved effortlessly using lightweight mats and a nonpermanent adhesive that can easily be peeled off.

2. Sea Life Decor – This wonderful DIY idea would make excellent decor for a beach wedding! I saw this tutorial over on Ucreate and thought it would be a perfect addition to this list of DIY wedding decor ideas. All you need to do is go out and find (or buy if you need to) some pretty shells and/or items from the sea and hot clue them into a candlestick base! Simple. No? And take a peek at how lovely they look!

3. Wall Candies – I came across this idea on Parents.com. These wall candies were decorations for a Candy Land themed birthday party. They are VERY easy to make and would be an adorable decoration to go with a wedding candy bar! Hang them on the wall near the bar or even attach the candy decorations along the front of the table.

Hanging Paper Spheres – These decorations I found on Ladybird Ladybird were made to dress up a craft space.  Just think how fun these would be hanging around your reception venue!  Find some funky paper patterns in your wedding colors and you’re good to go!

5. Upcycled Bunting –This bunting was made as an Easter decoration on PoppyTalk … but with different cut-out shapes and fabric in your wedding colors, it would be a lovely decoration for your wedding day!

6. Book Page Decor – I saw this idea by Cathy of California and thought it would make an excellent DIY wedding project!  All you need are paper lanterns, old books and glue …

7. Scrapbook Paper Pack Backdrop – This project was originally for making fun wall paper, on Carma.se, but it could be used in a wedding in a number of ways.  With a pack of scrapbook paper that matches your wedding colors, you could create a backdrop for your ceremony or a DIY photobooth.  You could even use it to cover a table top for a dessert, favor or gift table.

These next few ideas require a little more work …

8. Scrap Pallet Plank Backdrop – Here is another idea for a wedding backdrop.  Again, it could be used in a number of ways; ceremony backdrop, photobooth backdrop or even a free standing wall to hold a heart shaped photo display (why not??). I saw this project on Poppytalk as it was used for a plank wall. If you have the time and energy, go ahead and take the planks apart and make your backdrop from scratch.  Otherwise, here is my idea … Forget taking the pallets apart and connect the pallets as is.  If you’re just looking for a fun wood backdrop, that should do just fine!

9. Swinging Table – This idea would be a great playful element to add to an intimate backyard wedding. Found over at the incredible Hostess with the Mostess blog, this DIY tutorial is simple and sweet.

10. Distressed Wood Sign – Ok, this idea includes two tutorials. The first for the distressed wood was found on Love and Olive Oil and the second for stenciling I saw over at The Girl on the Go. This decor item could be used anywhere in your wedding.  You could create signs for directions (ceremony this way), signs to label certain things (sweets table) or you could make signs with words or monograms on them.  You could even use this idea to make distressed looking table numbers.
