I ended up making my own DIY tractor wrapping paper for my grandson’s farm birthday party. I could not find anything I liked in store or online. So I thought why not make it myself? It has been a few months now but I realized that I still needed to share it here with y’all. So here we go!
Yes I have more ideas today for my daughter’s wedding! Today we are going to talk about how to make DIY wedding fans. When your daughter picks a July wedding date for an outdoor ceremony…in July…..in Tennesse…..you need to come up with something! I thought why not give everyone their own fan to at least move the air around. I came up with these quick and easy DIY wedding fans. This post is sponsored by Online Labels however all projects and opinions are my own.
Y’all are going to love these party mason jar drink wrappers. These are great for a wedding or any other party. Just wrap your mason jar mugs and set out markers for guests to write their names on their glasses. A quick and easy solution to the issue of mixing up drinks! I am wrapping up mason jar wedding week with this project today. If you have missed any of the fun, check out day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4. Also be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post for the mason jar wedding ideas from my partners for this series.
Once the buttons were sorted by color, I already felt better about my button “collection”. Okay I might just be a button hoarder. You be the judge. I then cut white card stock to the size of the mason jar lids. I stamped the colors in each jar on the top of the lid.
Next up I made some tent cards. Fold a plain 4 x 6 index card in half and stamp. You can use these for place cards or to mark food on a buffet. Anywhere you need a little note for the party.
Now for some utensil pouches. I used a folded cookie bag wrapped in washi tape. I then used a blue disc cut with my Sizzix and a stamped circle in the center. So easy yet oh so cute. These can be used at a set table or put in basket on your buffet for ease of picking up utensils.
I also made some green discs with my Sizzix and stamped those as well. You can use these as table scatter or as tags on gifts. Anywhere you want to add a cute baby touch to your party.
I set my table with a white tablecloth and striped place mats. Then just add in your plate, decor, and of course a mason jar glass with a fancy straw.
Your guests will love all of the personalized touches in your DIY baby shower decorations.
Cut a sheet of paper so that it fits your candle. Punch out a pattern of windows in your scrapbook paper with the Fiskars Everywhere Punch.
Cut a sheet of tissue paper slightly smaller than your paper and tape to the back.
Use various stamps to decorate each window of your candle wrap.
Wrap the candle and secure with tape in the back. The candles I am using are wax sleeves that accept battery power tea lights. There is no threat of fire when using these types of candles. Add random buttons from the Something New button pack around your candle wrap. Use hot glue to secure your buttons.
Add a collection of these to your reception tables. Make them in various sizes for a stunning display. Your guests will marvel at your skills once you make these great DIY wedding candle wraps. Grab your buttons and get started today.

Supplies needed to make your own custom stamps (my supplies were provided by Consumer Crafts but all opinions and projects are my own):
Now for my DIY stenciled favor bags. Planning a wedding? These favor bags are super simple and may be customized to your theme. I have a super simple secret for stenciling these quickly — ink! Yep ink gets the job done fast and dries in a flash. I actually came up with five different DIY stenciled favor bags.
After I stenciled a few different favor bags, I thought about different way you could close them to get different looks. I came up with five different looks to choose from. My first favor bag uses a stencil that is a series of circles.
I held this one closed with a clothespin. This clothespin actually has a piece of scrapbook paper that I used Mod Podge to adhere to the top. You can also use glitter or paint on clothespins for a different look.
My next favor bag has a branch stencil that I just loved for a slightly rustic look.
My next bag has a lovely frame stencil and I used a lavender ink.
Again I used the two punched holes method of closing but this time threaded in ribbon. Just using different materials can give a completely different look.
Next up is a fleur de lis stenciled on a white bag.
I actually used washi tape to close this bag. I love this sheet music washi tape.
This time I bunched the bag closed with a wide ribbon. Loving that bright pink!
This one went up in my son’s room on the barnwood shelf we made him. I love that the deer silhouette looks slightly modern with the tribal like pattern yet it is surrounded by old vintage pieces.
What is better than that? My son loves this little canvas as well. Now that is what I call a win – win.
I outlined the entire bird and wing with the dimensional paint.
I used some small stamps and Staz-on ink to stamp “love” on the wing. Staz-On is my go to ink when you really want it to stay on! I actually stamped while the dimensional paint was still wet. I then set the entire thing aside to dry.
After your project is dry, punch or drill a hole and add a ribbon to hang. So simple yet elegant. I love that metallic sparkle!
