Entry #2: DIY Aisle Runner

Continuing with our DIY project contest, Brandi made her aisle runner that turned into wall art after the wedding.

DIY Aisle Runner


Step 1: purchased white muslin that measured 36″ wide. I used a bolt, but purchases as many yards to create the length you want.

Step 2: Layout the muslin and iron flat the section you wish to do the logo. I placed mine toward the bottom of the aisle runner.

Step 3: I purchased the stencil from Hobby Lobby. Arrange the stencil so that you will be able to fit two of them angled where the ends almost touch.

Step 4: Complete the circle by rotating the stencil around four times.

Step 5: For the initials, create your layout on the computer and print it. Place the paper under the fabric centered in the circle. You will be able to see the initials through the fabric.Trace the initials with paint. I used acrylic craft paint. Do the same thing for the date.

Step 6: The edges of the muslin are already serged all you have to do is serge or hem the top and bottom of the muslin.

When I saw this shot of the bride wearing a vintage slip I knew this wedding would rock my socks off:

She purchased her vintage wedding dress from eBay! Not everyone can pull off wearing an 80′s wedding dress in such rockin’ attitude. Love it! H

Love this shot of Suzanne, it looks so dreamy…

DIY Monogrammed Pumpkins

Starting today I’ll be posting DIY entries sent from readers who are running to win a $200 gift certificate to Wedding Paper Divas. Voting will not start until all entries all published, so take your time to choose your favorite. Because I am running a little behind with other projects I have for the blog, I had to limit the number of entries to 25. It was extremely hard to pick only 25 out of 48 total entries, there are so many creative people!

To not overwhelm you with do-it-yourself project overload, I’ll posting two entries daily for about two weeks.


Here is our first entry, sent by Jessica M. She created Artificial Monogrammed Pumpkins.

Monogrammed Pumpkins

What you’ll need:

  • two medium artificial pumpkins
  • one large artificial pumpkin
  • artificial pumpkin carving kit
  • straight pins
  • led light or fake tea light
  • carbon paper


Step 1: Using MS Word, print out the design you want in the desired size.

Trace the design onto the best looking side of the pumpkin. In my case I used our monogram and used the J & F on medium pumpkins and a P on the larger one.

Step 2: Once your designs are outlined, you can begin cutting a hole into the bottom of each pumpkin. After that, begin cutting out the design with the carving kit. If there are any small pieces that need to be re-inserted after you’ve cut them out, set them aside.

Step 3: After your done with the main carving. You can re-insert the small pieces using straight pins. For example, I stuck a pin through part of the middle of the P and then stuck the pin in the main part of the pumpkin so it looks as if its not attached.

Much more to come!
