It is the last day of Craft Lightning and I am sharing my DIY rustic wedding signs today. If you have missed any of Craft Lightning, be sure to catch up with the quick crafts in the round ups from day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4. This tutorial was originally posted over at the Darice blog but I wanted to share it here in case y’all missed it. Bear with me as this one has tons of steps but trust me they all go quickly and you will have your own rustic wedding signs in no time.
I have some rustic glam wedding decor that you are going to love but first some exciting news. This is my first post as a Dollar General ambassador! Every month I have the pleasure of stalking Dollar General for some fabulous finds and bringing them right here to you. Have you been in a Dollar General lately? They have really stepped up their game y’all! From craft supplies to home decor, there are some amazing deals to be found. For instance, you can find EVERYTHING you need to make this rustic glam wedding decor right at Dollar General. Skeptical?? Then lets get started!
Yep today I am mixing mason jars with gold glitter to give you the rustic yet glamorous wedding of your dreams. To make everything you see, gather the follow from your local Dollar General:
- Framed picture
- Gold glitter posterboard
- Mason jars with chalkboard label
- Mason jar tea light holder
- Tea lights
- Glue dots (or other glue method)
- Metallic gold spray paint
- Gold glitter tape
- Mason jar string lights
I told you Dollar General had stepped up their game! Want proof I found all of these in my local Dollar General store? I even took pictures INSIDE the store to prove it to you.
Awesome right? I will pause while you head to Dollar General for your supplies. Then hurry back here to make your own rustic glam wedding decor ‘kay? Alright now that you are back, start by stripping that framed picture of all hardware, etc. Remember it is becoming a tray so it will need to sit flat on the table.
Next we are going to have to get inside of it to add that fabulous gold glitter poster board (yes it is that amazing in person as well).
The frame I settled on is sort of a shadow box because the picture has some 3D elements to it.
Can you guess what I am going to say? We are going to need to remove all of those as well so the posterboard lays flat. I just pulled all of the elements off the picture.
Now use the picture as a template and cut a piece of that fabulous gold glitter poster board the same size.
I used glue dots (also available at Dollar General) to put the posterboard onto the picture. You can use hot glue, krazy glue, or any other fabulous glue that you can find at Dollar General.
Now reassemble your frame and you have a fabulous tray in just minutes to add to your rustic glam wedding decor. Rustic glam? But what about the colors on that mason jar tea light holder? Have no fear! We are going to fix that as well. Start by disassembling the candle holder.
Spray paint the hello top with the metallic gold spray paint. Then wrap the amazing gold glitter tape around the burlap for a glam look that you will love.
Speaking of amazing gold glitter tape….I had to use it again. These mason jar string lights were screaming at me from the shelf at Dollar General but they needed a little glam.
Just wrap the tape around the tops for an extra special touch. I can see these lights strung all around your outdoor summer ceremony.
Where did those chalkboard label mason jars end up? A little writing and they are ready for some flowers. Yes these jars are sold at Dollar General with that chalkboard label already on them. Run don’t walk y’all. They can’t last long.
The mason jar tea light holder was reassembled once the paint dried on the top. I added in a tea light from Dollar General as well.
Pulling this rustic glam wedding decor together only takes minutes and purchasing everything from Dollar General is a cost savings for sure. Throw the budget wedding of your dreams by stalking the new finds at Dollar General.
Are you like me and have a mason jar addiction? This centerpiece is definitely for you as well. Change up the chalk writing on the jars to suit any event or party you are hosting. “Happy Birthday” or “Congrats Sue” will work as well as “We do”. Turn this rustic glam wedding decor into rustic glam party decor with the swipe of an eraser.

I love spring and all it’s beautiful new flowers blooming all around. So today I have a printable for you to dress up your glass jars to use as vases for all your favorite flowers.

It is time for Crafty Hangouts again. This month we have mason jar crafts all week long. I am kicking things off with these two toned dyed jars that are perfect for candle holders. Plus you can make them in just a few minutes. The hangouts this week are actually sponsored by Ball brand. I am using two different Ball brand jars in this video and if you will hang around until the end of the week I will use a different type of jar for another craft.
Make fabulous glitter tea lights in just seconds with little to no mess. How? Let me show you! This one was originally posted over at Crafts Unleashed but I am republishing here in case y’all missed it. Get a few supplies and make a ton of these in just a few minutes. Add them to your wedding, reception, graduation party, or any other event.
Today I am going to show you how to design and print custom wedding labels. I added some initials and a date to my examples below but you can design the labels of your dreams. You just need a regular computer and printer for these unique wedding labels.
Y’all Jen Goode from 100 Directions is here again this month with a free printable sweet treats kit that you will love. This one is perfect for wedding favors or heck just a fun way to give sweet treats to anyone on your list. There are some major changes happening on this website in case y’all have noticed. I am ironing things out over the next few days. Hang onto your hats!
This month’s printable I took on the challenge of creating something to add to your wedding. To me, weddings are so very personal, you have the opportunity to personalize every tiny aspect of your day if you want. So, I wanted to make sure to create something you could add yourself to. I created a tiny treat bag with a selection of embellishment pieces and parts so you can put together every little bag with that special touch that is uniquely your own.

Holly here from Ribbons and Glue sharing with you an Anniversary Gift I recently made for my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. Instead of giving them a plate, plaque or frame, I decided to make my parents a personalized 40th Anniversary keepsake out of Paper Mache numbers.
My parents have been happily married for 40 years now and my initial gift idea was to create something using past and present photos. Unfortunately, I live 2500 miles away so I wasn’t able to go digging through old boxes and it kinda ruins the surprise asking Mom to send some pics.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the Echo Park Swirls cut file and lettering then embellished the numbers with ribbon, rhinestones and Maya Road Stick Pins.
Ruby is the color for a 40th Wedding Anniversary and since I couldn’t use real rubies on my project, ruby ribbon was the second best option. I really like the way this project turned out. I just mailed it off this week and this post will go live before they actually receive there gift. Oh well, it’s the thought the counts.
- Hope you had a BALL at our wedding!
- Hope you have a BALL at our wedding!
- It is a BALL having you as our groomsman!
- It is a BALL having you as a bridesmaid!
- It is a BALL having you at our shower!
