DIY Wedding Gift Ideas

Monogrammed Candle
My sweet friend, Hannah,  made this monogrammed candle for me for Christmas this year and I love it!!  I thought it would make a great gift for a wedding or shower gift for a new bride-to- be.  

She said it was very easy to make.  She just found a font in Word that she liked and printed out the letters in the monogram.  She then used a pencil to trace over the letters onto the candle to make an outline of the letters in the wax.  Finally, she used a paint pen to color in the letters of the monogram!

And I love this idea from another blog I stumbled across this week.  You can't actually eat off of the plates, but they would look great hanging in a kitchen.  

Melissa takes you through an easy step-by-step tutorial of turning any plate into a beautiful monogrammed gift for someone special!
