DIY Wedding Chalkboard Table Number

Summer is wedding season for a lot of families, and a DIY wedding is a great way to save money on the cost of getting married. As our DIY Wedding Chalkboard Table Number shows, DIY can also be beautiful – and a great way to personalize your wedding.

DIY Wedding Chalkboard Table Number


This table number is very simple but oh so pretty! Small chalkboard easels like this are available at most craft stores. They make great table numbers, or menu display boards for weddings and showers. And at the end of the night, they can go home with guests as party favors!

DIY Chalkboard Easel

To start the project, paint the bare wood with white chalk paint. Use a small brush along the sides of the chalkboard. If you get some paint on the chalkboard surface, use a damp cloth to wipe it away while it is still wet. If you aren’t able to get it all off and a trace of it remains, don’t worry. It will just look like smudges of chalk when the project is complete.

On Lilac Lane embellishment bottle

Lay the easel flat and spread some of the glue in one of the corners of the chalkboard. Fill in some buttons, varying colors and sizes and leaving small spaces in a couple of places. Fill the small spaces in with small items from the embellishment bottle such as seed beads, sequins, and flat back pearls. Repeat for each corner of the blackboard. Allow to dry.

I chose to work with the “On Lilac Lane” embellishment bottle for this DIY Wedding Chalkboard Table Number, but this project could be adapted to any wedding color theme by selecting another of the embellishment bottles (or even one of our Button Bonanza bags). Our embellishment bottles include popular wedding colors like Mint, Yellow, and Pink.

The last step before using your DIY Wedding Chalkboard Table Number is to use a piece of chalk to prime the board. Place the side of it on the chalkboard and rub all it all to cover the board. Erase the chalk and the board is ready to use!

What other uses can you think of for this decorative chalkboard easel?

DIY Wedding Frame with Button Heart

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and that means love, romance…and proposals! So, for everyone who woke up this morning with a wedding in their future (or their family’s future), we’ve got a fun and easy project for you  – a DIY wedding frame!

This wedding frame is multi-purpose – it can serve as a wedding or shower decoration, and then transition to home decor as a treasured memory after the big day is over.

Project PlanningThe first step in this project is to select a color scheme. This project is built around a fabric background, which can really be any color. I’ve chosen a beautiful aqua, but the wedding’s theme color or a color from the bride’s home decor might both be excellent choices.

The gold iron-on material matches both the frame and a fleck that is in the fabric. Our Haberdashery button pack is variegated between cream and white, so no matter what color of wedding dress the bride chooses, the collage will work.

Wedding Frame construction

Use a fabric pencil to sketch out the area for the heart.

Measure the remaining area and create the text and other elements on your die cut machine. Cut from glitter iron-on material, and iron on to fabric following manufacturer’s instructions.

For the fabric to stand up to holding the collage of buttons in the frame, it needs to be stiffened. I used Krylon Spray Adhesive to laminate the fabric to a sheet of white chipboard as a backing.

Using white glue (I used PPA Matte by ArtQuest), adhere white buttons from the Button Basics and Haberdashery packages. Continue until the entire heart is filled. I ensured that the largest ones were spread around in a balanced fashion by laying them down first and then building around them.

Finish by removing the stem from a heart button, and gluing the heart on top of the glitter flourish.

Remove the glass from the frame, and place the cardboard sheet in place!

And now your beautiful memory of a special day is ready to enjoy!

Congratulations to all the newly engaged couples out there, and we look forward to seeing you make our DIY wedding frame!


Wedding Card

Wedding Card

Make a lovely wedding card. Wedding season is upon us!

I love to use the colors chosen by the wedding party. By stamping and adding matching buttons, any card can become extra special to the bride and groom.

Wedding Easel Card

This is a simple easel card with a little bit of stamping with die cuts. It’s not difficult. The background is embossed panels – the folder is Swiss Dots. The swirls are die cut from the Belle Rose set from Heartfelt Creations. The sprigs are from a Spellbinders set called Foliage. When some were too big, I just cut them down. Make your dies work.

Button Embellishments

I stamped my bird cage and fussy cut it. I also cut a mat for it, so it would stand out in the business of the flowers. The buttons help the card stay open. To one I added a bling center, and then I took two buttons and tied them together with twine. The larger white button is actually upside down, so that the twine doesn’t touch the card.

Wedding Embellishments

I stamped and cut out the label. My sentiment was a tad too big, so I just matted it and accented it with some fancy bling.

The buttons are from the Valentino Collection, the flower buttons are blank Flower Shapes, and I added some bling to the centers. The flowers came with bling already attached.

What better gift than a Ivory Pearl Haberdashery Wedding Favor Sachet Set.  Buttons Galore & More offer more than just buttons they offer young couples the ability to create lovely wedding invitations and favors with their lovely line of buttons.

For my project today I used one that I have totally fallen in love with.  The  Ivory Pearl Haberdashery.  The ivory pearl finished buttons come in a variety of sizes and its truly something that can be used over and over again regardless of what the occasion is.

Now who wouldn’t want a scented wedding favor? Especially one with lovely buttons such as the Ivory Pearl Haberdashery?  These favors  can be used to provide scent to any room in your home  after the wedding is over.

These Ivory Pearl Haberdashery Wedding Favor Set can be created for any occasion it doesn’t necessary have to be done for weddings, but I think that anyone attending a wedding would truly love receiving such a lovely favor.

MATERIALS to make the  Ivory Pearl Haberdashery wedding favors:


Cross Promotional Supplies:

  • Fiskar Scissors
  • Jacquard – Velcro Press & Close Fasteners

Additional Materials:

  • Hot Glue
  • Glass Beads
  • Fabric of choice
  • Trim
  • Potpourri – Cinnamon
  • Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Canson – Tracing Paper
  • Canvas Corp – Heavy White Cardstock
  • BoBunny – Back to Basic Paper collection
  • Sewing Machine
  • White Floral Wire
  • Black Staz On Ink
  • Teresa Collins Stamp – Vintage Finds Acrylic Stamps

How to make the  Ivory Pearl Haberdashery wedding favors:

Now I know it may seem like a lot of materials.  Trust me it makes a lovely  Wedding Favor Sachet.  I started out by cutting my fabric that I picked up at my local fabric store.  I cut the fabric 4 1/2″ x 5″ and sewing the edges leaving an opening.  Now, I’m not that great at sewing.   So I glued my ivory trim with Beacon adhesive Fabri-Tac.  Wow this glue is amazing.  I was really amazed on how quick it dried up and how well it glued the trim to the fabric.  Once you have this all done you can begin beading the flowers by using a floral wire.  I twisted the wire once all the glass beads were on the fabric wire to create a flower.  To make the swirls on the side of the flower I did the same thing.

I applied the flowers to the fabric using Beach Adhesive  Fabric-Tac.  It was just that easy to adhere to the sachet bags.  Next  I applied my buttons from Ivory Pearl Haberdashery collection and Sunny.  They are on  Buttons Galore & More website.  I placed a piece of Velcro Press and Close Fastener to the inside of the sachet bags. This will allow you to refresh or replace your potpourri bags anytime you want.

The potpourri is something I picked up at my local Walmart.   I used Canson Tracing Paper to hold my potpourri.  I cut about 3 3/4″ x 4″ tracing paper.  I hot glued the edges leaving an opening and then placed my potpourri inside and sealed the top with more hot glue.   I placed it  inside of my Wedding Favor Sachet and sealed with the Velcro Press & Close Fasteners.

I couldn’t stop just here I had to make a card to accommodate this lovely Wedding Favor Sachet Bags.  The card is 5 x 5 1/2″ and I used the same technique to create the flower.   I added the Ivory Pearl Haberdashery buttons to the flower petals which I glued using hot glue.  I  also saved a piece of the fabric that I used for the bags and applied it my card and to top this card off I used Teresa Collins Vintage Find Acrylic Stamp, Staz On and Buttons Galore & More Sm. Rectangle Sliders .  I stamped the word “LOVE” using Black Staz On Ink and stamped it directly to the Sm. Rectangle Sliders.  I used Glue Dots to attach my seam binding ribbon to the card and finished my card up.

I hope this inspires you to create something lovely and amazing for your Wedding using Buttons Galore & More buttons for your wedding favors.
