There are so many ordinary objects just sitting around you can “upcycle” to create unique decor for your event.  Think of things that you throw away, give to good will, or have just passed their life expectancy, and dress them up in a new way.  It’s a great way to go green on your wedding day, and lower your carbon foot print!  So, instead of tossing them, go ahead and give them new life!  Here are some ideas for you!


An old wooden ladder to hang pictures.


Upcycled silverware can make whimsical and useful favors.  Paint them your wedding colors for guests to use for dinner, cake or coffee.


A Pomander made from an old book adds a romantic touch to a book or garden themed wedding.

Look around your home or think twice before throwing away that stained blouse with the great pattern.  You never know, it could be fashioned into an amazing sash for your gown.  It only takes a bit of creativity!
