Couples are always looking for ways to make their wedding unique to them. That’s what’s so great about crafting for your wedding, you get to add your own custom touches to your celebration! Here’s a fun twist on the traditional wedding guestbook idea. Use “bride and groom” mason jars with wood hearts that your guests can sign and drop in the jar! This unique keepsake is quick and easy to create.
- Darice Mr. & Mrs. Laser Cut Wood Sign
- Darice Chalkboard Mason Jar and Lid
- Darice Silver Mercury Mason Jar
- Darice Wood Heart Pieces
- Lace Scrap
- White Adhesive Vinyl
- Groom Vinyl Cut File (Free Download HERE) or Download the pdf HERE
- Brown Scrapbooking Ink
- Silver Spray Paint
Step 2. Stain the edges of the wood hearts with the brown scrapbooking ink. Use a foam applicator to add the ink to the just the sides of the heart.
Step 3. Cut a piece of remnant white lace to fit the length of the silver mason jar. Place the lace at the lid of the jar, and screw on the jar lid to hold the lace in place. Trim off the excess lace.
Step 4. Download the free cut file or the pdf to cut the groom’s suit from the white adhesive vinyl. If you don’t have an electronic cutting machine you can trace and hand cut the pieces from vinyl. Peel the bow tie, pocket, and buttons from the paper backing and attach each piece to the chalkboard black mason jar.
Display the sign next to the mason jars. Arrange the heart pieces near the jars with a marker. Your guests can leave a message on a heart and then drop the heart in one of the jars. Such a fun guestbook idea, right! You can later enjoy reading each individual message. The hearts could even be turned into a frame, a piece of wall art, or any other project you can think of for your unique keepsake guest book idea.
