I can’t even believe that it’s my 10th wedding anniversary this year. I have so many wonderful memories from that day, including all of the DIY projects that I incorporated into the ceremony. That was the days before Pinterest and YouTube, and all of my inspiration came from the wonderful community message boards at the Knot.
Luckily for today’s Brides, there is an endless supply of inspiration, ideas, and DIY tutorials to help make their day special and unique. Here’s a video for an Artistic Wire project on making a DIY Bride Hanger using the Really Big Jig and 12 Gauge Aluminum Artistic Wire.

You can download a template for the Bride letters and a blank template to customize your own words from the Beadalon website. They’ll print out the best when you download the PDF file rather than printing from the webpage.
As always, be sure to post your projects on the Beadalon Facebook page!
