With some simple items that you’re able to find at your local dollar or bargain store you can create your own amazing wedding decor details at home. These pretty DIY’s are sure to keep you busy and generate some amazing wedding pieces that you’ll love.

All you need is a piece of wood and some paint to create a beautiful wedding sign. From a welcome sign to an itinerary, this piece is important for your guests and easy to create. 

Table Numbers
Another integral piece of your wedding day is the table numbers for the reception. With simple frames you can generate your own numbers and decorate them to suit your theme. You can even add a special twist on the numbers like this sweet set that features a photo of the couple at the age corresponding to the number. 

Card Box
Use an old box, or purchase one at your local dollar store as the base for your card gift box. Paint this to match your wedding theme and you’ve got the perfect place to store all of your cards.
