From Wedding to Home: Part Two



We really enjoyed our first post on how to re-use wedding decor in your home, so we gathered up more popular wedding items and found ideas for how to incorporate them in your newlywed home! Enjoy.

DIY Doily Ideas

For the wedding: Wrap favors in cotton doilies, via Snippet & Ink.

In the home: Sew doilies together to make a pretty lampshade via Apartment Therapy or a lovely table runner via Sweet Paul.

Polaroid Picture Ideas

For the wedding: Have guests take polaroid photos of themselves and pin them onto twine that you’ve strung up, along with notes for the couple.

In the home: Make a heart-shaped collage with the polaroids via Black Eiffel or cover an entire wall with them via Apartment Therapy.

Vintage Book Ideas

For the wedding: Stack vintage books on each table as part of your centerpieces, via Green Wedding Shoes

In the home: Bolt stacks of books together to make a stool, via Dezeen (the lamp base is also made out of book pages!), or if that seems too difficult, simply stack the books to make an end table, via Design Esquire.

Tea Tin Ideas

For the wedding: Tea tins make adorable vases, via Martha Stewart

In the home: Fill tea tins with wax to make candles via Country Living or turn one into a charming lamp base like this one by iamanie on Etsy

In the home: Hang them on the wall via Vegreenism or use them to frame objects via Brooklyn Limestone

Birdcage Ideas
