Wedding DIY to Try: Ombre

You know a fashion or beauty trend has made it when it begins to pop up on wedding blogs. Ombre, brought to you by fabulous summer hair, seems to be here to stay where events are concerned. From dramatic to subtle prettiness, ombre can be applied to any color theme. So it’s no wonder that brides are obsessed. I’ve seen its effects on everything from paper products to cakes to bridesmaid ensembles. Something that looks so pretty has to be hard, right? Not so fast. Here are a few DIY ombre projects for every skill level.

Place Cards


The techinique used for these placecards can extend to just about any paper product. Just think: you could literally create and personalize as much or as little as you want. (Love Wed Bliss)

Monogram Letters


I. Love. These. And after the big day, they’ll make a great addition to you new home. Feeling extra crafty? Scale them down for a truly awesome cake topper. (Capitol Romance)

Ceremony Decor


Groupings of these pom poms over the couple during the ceremony would make for great pictures. Groupings of these over the reception tables would creat major wow-factor. (Whimsical Wonderland Weddings)

Table Linens


If I had my choice on undertaking a major dye project, I’d choose table runners since they’re smaller than tablecloths and fewer than napkins. But, really, this can be used for any table linen you choose. (The Budget Savvy Bride)



Probably the easiest project of them all, these milk bottles would look adorable grouped together as a centerpiece. Bonus points for arranging flowers in them in an ombre bouquet. (The Crafted Life)
