This is something I hadn’t thought about DIYing, but now after looking at a few I might give it a whirl.  Here are my top three faves:

I think this one from Target is nice, but it’s $40…that seems a bit much for something I won’t have much use for after the wedding:

These next two are from Etsy and maybe I’m wrong, but I feel like I can go to Hobby Lobby and buy a box and some paint and hook this up:

This one is my favorite…but again, I think I can buy some wallpaper and ribbon and a box and make this myself for less than $45:

So what do you think?  I’m not super crafty, but I feel like this is a reasonable project…this shouldn’t lead to frustration should it?

    No. The second one just looks like wrapping a present. Definitely doable. I think I am going to just get a basket from walmart or big lots. Simple. Classic. In fact, I have some already around the house. I can tie a black and pink bow on it to incorporate our colors if I want to.

    Girl, I have one that you can have. It looks very much like the first one, but in a bronz-y brown color. If you want, I can email you a pic. Just shoot me an email if you’re interested.

  3. I think that’s totally doable! I’ve made one before and it really is just like wrapping a present, and even if you’re not good at that, it’s a good project to get some help with. There’s definitely no need to pay $45 for something like that unless your trials go really hay-wire, haha.

  4. you can make that for less than $10. I promise.

    Yeah, I think you can tackle these. Make sure you have a good quality glue.

    These ideas are cute and definitely doable. You could also reclaim an old birdcage and use that as well!

    I love the last one especially since my colors include gold. I haven’t tried but I’ve been told DIY card boxes are simple. Set aside a saturday morning and I am more than confident you can get it done. Let us know how it goes, I may want to try it too.

    This is definitely a do-it-yourself project, or…a project you can assign to one of your bridesmaids : ) Definitely not something you should spend a lot of $ or time on.
