While you always have the option to purchase a pricey gift for the couple’s special day, a handmade item can often show your support and love in a much deeper way. From crafty doormats to elegant hoop wreaths, here are some of our favorite homemade wedding gift ideas the couple is sure to love.
Chalkboard Cocktail Glasses
Newlyweds who love to entertain can always use more glassware for their family and friends. Chalkboard cocktail glasses are an easy way to keep track of people’s drinks throughout the evening, along with an added personalized touch. You can purchase glasses pre-made with a chalkboard bottom, or simply make your own with a chalkboard aerosol spray paint.
Once you’ve finished your chalkboard cocktail glasses, colored coasters also make a great homemade wedding gift idea. All you’ll need are wooden or cork coasters from your local craft store, acrylic paint and tape for clean lines. Once you’ve designed your custom pattern with tape, spray each coaster with paint and leave to dry. You can even add a little sparkle by including some glitter on top!
Help make the couple’s home a little bit cozier after their wedding with a handmade doormat. You can truly be as creative as you’d like, whether it’s painting their names, wedding date, “Mr. and Mrs.” or even a quote you know they’ll like. If you’re not too great at design or hand drawing, you can always keep it simple with a fun pattern instead.
Wreaths are no longer just a holiday decoration. Hoop wreath designs have become increasingly popular and make a perfect homemade wedding gift, especially if the couple is moving into a new home together. The supply list is short and easy: metal rings + wire, floral stems and tape. You can read through the full tutorial here to create your own at home.
