If you're getting married soon I'm sure the Pinterest DIY's are really building up. There's endless ideas for DIY table numbers, seating charts, centerpieces and more. I must throw it out there though... I often warn that do-it-yourself projects for the infrequent crafter can wind up being twice the time, stress, and cost than buying it finished and ready to go. You can relate?—Don't feel bad. In most cases those gorgeous Pins are done by professionals who know what they are doing.
If you think you've got this, more power to ya! These DIY projects you can spend time doing with your bridesmaids and future hubby add an extra story to your wedding journey, and another element of personalization to your special day. One thing to keep in mind if you plan on doing some DIYs over the next few months is take advantage of Black Friday! So many brides are super focused on those electronic steals and bargain accessories for gifts and don't even think about using this day to their wedding advantage until after.
Craft stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Joann Fabrics all offer great door busters and coupons that you can use to help stock up on basics like glass vases (Michaels) and supplies for those DIYs.
Extra tip: Download their smartphone apps that include coupons cashiers can scan right from your phone. (See below for links to download)
Pro tip: Many craft stores such as Hancock Fabrics, Joann Stores, and Michaels accept competitor coupons. The rules are they can't be total purchase coupons, they have to be printed for Hancocks, and Michaels coupons cannot be used on fabric since they don't carry fabric themselves. (I may have done this once or twice can you tell? :))
