Hello, loves! It’s Elizabeth from Stockroom Vintage back to share another quick, easy and affordable DIY. I love any decor items that feature raw wood and yarn, and these initial monogrammed plaques made with yarn and nails are a simple and pretty way to customize your wedding reception space. Not to mention,
We’ve all seen those super fun photobooth pictures from a wedding or party! They look something like this: We wanted to do something similar at our wedding, so we took to finding a way to do it with items we already had and using the Internet as our guide. Nick gave me
Hello, brides! I’m Elizabeth from Stockroom Vintage and I’m back this month to share another budget-friendly craft project with you! One of the ideas that’s been floating in my head–it even woke me up one night!–is the sequin-lined candle holder. So I picked up some glass votive holders for $0.25/each at Goodwill,
I am very proud of one of my more budget-savvy projects – my $4.80 card box! I purchased the black box online in early February it sat, unassembled and un-crafted, until July 28. There seems to have been an interesting phenomenon that has come over me lately. It’s less than five months
I came across a really nice looking card box on Pinterest the other day that linked back to the site where you could purchase it. While it was very nice looking, $79 was too much for a card box for our budget. I figured I could make something comparable for about 10%
Hello, brides! It’s Elizabeth, the owner, curator and stylist of Stockroom Vintage, checking in with another DIY project that I am so excited to share with you ladies!

Like many budget savvy brides, I am not having flowers at my wedding. Well, that’s not totally true. My bouquet will be made of real flowers, but that’s it. No flowers on the tables, none for the bridesmaids, none for the groomsmen, none for the decor. Oh, the shock and the horror!
Here I am to tackle my first DIY project for the wedding reception, table squares! When I started browsing Pinterest and the web for centerpiece ideas, I saw a few “tablescapes” that really jumped out at me. What I liked about them was the contrast between the table cloth and the fabric
With one successful craft day under our belts, we came back for more and knocked out the stick centerpieces. I have a few photos of the process to share, but unfortunately don’t have a great shot of the finished product yet… I guess that’ll be a teaser for our wedding photos coming later!
In today’s first DIY, I decided to mash-up two of my favorite things: painted jars and ombre designs. And, let me tell y’all, when these two met, they totally got it on. Colors blended. Future plans were made. (Would they be vases or storage vessels?) Either way, they’re destined for greatness. The
Ladies, I am happy to report that one of my first DIY projects for my wedding cost me a total of twenty-five cents!Materials: – cardboard – yarn – stapler This was a super easy and fun project to create decorative yarn letters. I think I am going to put them on the
Another DIY project we put together got the boy involved as well! This relatively simple project is a great opportunity to spend some time thinking about all of the little things that make the two of you unique. I personally value individuality within a marriage, so a project like this makes perfect
When you don’t have flowers, you get creative.I wrote in a previous post about my battle with whether or not to have flowers at the wedding. It was a difficult decision (especially given the many people who told me that it wasn’t a wedding without flowers and a perplexed caterer who wondered
I love bright colors—as you’ve probably learned by now—so I came up with all kinds of creative ideas of ways to incorporate them into our decorations. I know, however, that I have a tendency to want to overdo color, so I tried to incorporate neutral colors (usually white) in each element to
