From the Wedding to the Home: Part Four

We love how the same elements that create beautiful wedding decor can also translate into beautiful home decor. Reusing your leftover wedding decorations is not only a great way of recycling and saving money, but it’s also a way to remind you of your special day long after it’s over. Here’s some of our favorite wedding-to-home ideas!

1. Wood Slices.

For the wedding: We’ve seen so many creative uses for wood slices in weddings. One of our favorite ideas is to use a custom stamp on them to make these adorable rustic save the dates, via Nonpareil!

In the home: use the other side of the wood slice to make a unique clock via Design*Sponge, or use it as a tray for serving food via Martha Stewart Weddings

2. Wood Crates.

For the wedding: Use wooden crates to give some height to your dessert table, via Love & Lavender.

In the home: Use the crate as storage for books and magazines via Pottery Barn or stack multiples to make side tables, via Design*Sponge.

3. Yarn

For the wedding: Use a box filled with yarn to display escort cards, via Forget.Me.Knot Weddings

In the home: Besides it’s obvious use (knitting), yarn can be used to make a gorgeous wreath via Etsy, or fabulous (and cheap!) giftwrap via Flickr

4. Drawer knobs.

For the wedding: Eclectic drawer knobs from Anthropologie make a unique bouquet, via 100 Layer Cake.

In the home:Make an old piece of furniture look cuter via Love and Photographs or use drawer knobs as finials for a curtain rod, via Design*Sponge!

  6. I love these sorts of posts! When I was getting married, I had no idea about the wedding blogging world and so I had no idea how to incorporate my wedding decor into my home, much less do anything besides think on my own. At least now I can go to my storage and dig out my stuff!
