If I had to pick one thing that I love most over the course of the holiday season, it would have to be the warm feeling that the cozy decor and lighting brings during the chilly months. To make it feel even more special, I love to DIY as many of those decor items as I can. I am a huge fan of repurposing everyday items. Who says that feeling can’t apply to wedding decor, too? Here are a few ideas that I have come across in the past few weeks. I am swooning over those coffee filter wreaths!

These gorgeous coffee filter wreaths are super easy and crazy cheap to make, but don’t they look amazing?! I can imagine dressing it up for different seasons with colorful ribbon, bows, ornaments, etc. I plan to make one this year and will definitely let you know how it goes! Oh, and couldn’t you see this hanging on a chapel door for a beautiful addition to your wedding ceremony decor? How is that for double duty?!
- Cover your cabinets or even your front door with festive paper for an added touch of Jolly this holiday season!
- What do you do with all of those Christmas bulbs that don’t work? Toss them (gently!) into a vase, add a candle and Voila! You have a pretty little centerpiece! Fill a vase with button, coffee beans, floating candles or other small trinkets and this beauty will double duty.
- Kissing balls are always a delightful dose of cheer. Wrap them in a different fabric to hang from lighting fixtures or tent poles and you have a cute and easy way to jazz up unused spaces at your wedding!
- Creating your own holiday (or wedding) banners and typographic signs. Or, you can print this one here!
