    1. This wooden heart guest book that doubles as wall art for your home.

    This is an incredibly simple DIY that involves a bunch of pre-cut wooden hearts (like these), a Sharpie, and a hot glue gun. Then your loved ones' words will always be in view! See the tutorial here.

    2. An easy painted Mala easel that will tell your guests where to sit.

    3. These "something blue" shoes made with inexpensive paint.

    And if you're not into the traditional blue, you could coordinate them with your wedding colors, instead! Here's the how-to.

    4. These adorable custom cake toppers made from "peg people" wood turnings.
