The wedding ceremony, dancing, catering, and music are the main events. For the visitors, whether it be the newlyweds’ friends or family, it is a fun experience to share and a memorable time.
But I’m sure the happy couple in question is looking forward to and really thrilled for the Big Day. But do you know what they anticipate before the wedding the most?
All of their friends give them wedding presents. However, it might be simple to choose a gravy boat or waffle maker and call it a day when choosing the present.
Alternatively, selecting from a registry is still acceptable but is lacking something. Where is the thoughtful personal touch to convey to the couple that you took great care in choosing the ideal present for them?
Here are some DIY wedding present suggestions for you to consider in order to participate in the gift-giving process.
Song lyric art
Pretty prints made by blogger A Beautiful Mess would make wonderful homemade wedding presents. Find the music that the couple danced to on their first date, or another memorable line, then spell it out in vinyl letters on a prepared canvas.
Peel the letters apart after applying a light layer of spray paint to reveal the patterned text. You may make a gift with greater sentimental value than anything on the couple’s register in under 30 minutes, especially these wedding registry items that everyone later regrets asking for.
DIY Painted Wood Cut Platter
This charming handcrafted wood platter resembles a piece of art but also serves well as a serving tray. Serving ware was among my most treasured kitchen possessions when I first got married since it seemed like we were continually hosting guests.
This tray is adaptable and will undoubtedly be used in both professional and informal contexts. This easy DIY project only only a few dollars to build and is perfect for cheese or meats, a tray for nuts or other snacks.
DIY Personalised Tray
A black tray may be transformed into a unique, considerate, and stylish wedding present. That is exactly what may be made of this black serving tray. To spell out the couple’s last name, you will need to cut piece of the vinyl. If you like, you may also remove the day of their wedding.
To help moving the letters to the tray simpler, use transfer tape like this. Then, align the letters and push the glue into place after removing the paper. You can pretty much stop there to create a stunning DIY tray.
With this handmade wedding present from Delightfully Noted, you can keep track of the couple’s origins, how they met, and places of marriage. Simple enough: Map shapes may be cut out and covered with Mod Podge before being attached to colored cardboard and frames.

DIY Geometric Coasters
When the bride and groom enjoy their coffee together over these stylish geometric coasters, they will undoubtedly think lovingly of you. These coasters cost many dollars each on Etsy and are an excellent homemade wedding present idea. For less than $10, you may put together a set, which you should proudly present to the happy couple.
DIY Gift Using Cricut Explore Air
What about a box frame filled with lovely paper flowers for decoration? It may be customized with the newlyweds’ last name and wedding date!
You’re halfway there if you have your Cricut Explore Air 2 set up. Additionally, you’ll need a shadow frame, some red-tone cardboard paper, and a hot glue gun.

Wire Wrapped Serving Utensils
I’m surprised by how much I like having beautiful salad tongs. It may seem like an afterthought, but if you enjoy eating and presenting salads, what you use toss them with is important. Over the years, I’ve collected a number of interesting wooden salad bowls and pairs of attractive tongs.
Give the newlyweds a set they can treasure and enjoy for many years. For the loveliest forks and salad spoons, this playful set incorporates antique-inspired beads or even actual vintage beads and jewels. This is one of my favorite projects to make for anyone, whether they are married or not. It is a unique DIY wedding gift idea that you can be sure you won’t find anywhere else.
Pressed Herb Candles
There is no such thing as too many scented candles. So why not offer newlyweds six pressed herb candles? If they’re just setting up their new house, they’d make a great addition.
Choose from thyme, rosemary, lavender, or chamomile to choose your herbs. Each herb has a particular function: rosemary to increase energy and focus, lavender to promote relaxation, etc.
Then, start some candle wicks similar to these with some beeswax or soy wax and some glass jars from this location. While melting the wax, use caution!
These DIY wedding presents from Always Order Dessert, which include built-in drink “tags,” are perfect for newlyweds who entertain.

These wines are the greatest for any health requirement.)
Modern Oil And Vinegar Bottles
I’m avoiding a lot of manufactured foods in an effort to eat healthily. I’m getting back to the fundamentals, and a good place to start is by just dressing my salads with oil and vinegar. These ingredients are nice to have available on my counter. However, they must be adorable if they’re going to hang around on my counter.
So I made a few basic bottles that I bought at Target for $4 apiece my own. These bottles have a clean, contemporary appearance thanks to the simple inscriptions in stark white. They look really European on my counter, and it was extremely simple. These homemade oil and vinegar bottles make excellent presents.
Wood Pallet Coaster
Coasters made from rustic wood pallets are simple to build and look fantastic on coffee tables. Just a few extra-large popsicle sticks will do. Grab these 3/8-inch dowel rods while you’re shopping so you can support the coaster on all sides. They’ll add more support and assist your coasters become more durable. Distress the popsicle sticks to give them a pallet-like appearance to make it even more rustic.

DIY Cheese Knives
When hosting, a nice cheese dish is a must at my place. As my friends and family will attest, they’ve been my go-to throughout the years since they’re simple to make (just buy some items, arrange them on a plate, and you’re done! ), and they also look spectacular when finished. You can bet that I’ll be putting together a cheese plate or two over the upcoming holidays, so I made myself a new pair of homemade cheese knives to go with the spread.
The handles are shaped like gems and painted a dark, somber blue-green color, making them ideal for Thanksgiving and Christmas as well as all the other celebrations along the road. The handles were inspired by faceted crystals.
In a new house, there can never be too many mugs and glasses. Give these dishwasher-safe painted cups to newlywed friends who are setting up their new kitchen, perhaps? Purchase some white coffee or tea mugs first. Also required are some porcelain paints similar to these.

Take a can of gold spray paint and some painter’s tape first. Your tray will also be necessary. Set up some newspapers, tape off the area you don’t want to paint, and then start spraying the gold paint.
Gold Honey Bear Vase
You can make beautiful gilded vases by recycling honey bottles the way A Beautiful Mess does. All you need is a bear-shaped container that has been carefully cleaned, a paintbrush, gold leaf, and ten minutes. Need it sooner? Instead, choose metallic gold spray paint. Send the couple a note with some expert suggestions for extending the life of flowers so they may enjoy them in your vase for as long as possible.
