DIY Wedding 09 Sep

We love a good wedding here at Fred’s and it’s always great to hear what crafty ideas people come up with to give their wedding a DIY twist. We’ve picked a few of our favourite products that will give your wedding a creative flair.

Felt Squares


Once you have decided what colours you would like for your wedding, why not make your buttonholes and bouquet our of felt? Aside from being low cost and environmentally friendly,  Felt buttonholes and bouquets will never wilt so you can keep them forever!

Take a look at our felt here.

Tissue and Crepe Paper


Tissue and crepe paper are inexpesive and easy materials to work with. From pom poms to streamer and confetti to flowers you can use Tissue and Crepe paper to brighten up your wedding! We love the Paper to Petal book which is full of great templates for making paper flowers.

Lino Cut



Why not create a personalised stamp out of Lino which you can use to make wedding invites or place cards? Lindsey from Ministry of Craft gave us a great tutorial on how to make your own Save the Date cards. Take a look at the tutorial here.

Fuji Instax Camera

Asking your guests to take a photo of themselves using a Fuji Instax Camera for your guest book is a great way of remembering your night. Ask them to stick the photo into a book using Washi Tape with a quick message and hey presto, you have a scrap book filled with lovely memories of your wedding!
