4. Hay Bales and Vintage Frames

Find hay at an animal feed store and hang up empty frames with nails. Laying down an outdoor rug (like ones available here or here) adds a little color.

7. Mosquito Netted Sofa

Simply Rosie Photography / Via

This setup requires a good place to hang up a mosquito net (like a tree limb, or an exposed beam). This inspiration photo uses an antique bed, but benches will be easier to find β€” your venue may be able to provide one, or you may be able to borrow one for less than purchasing a new one. Then toss on some pillows to make it feel cozy.

Here's a basic tutorial for hanging plates. Many venues won't let you nail plates to the wall, so you can ask if you can use removable picture-hanging hooks, like these instead. Then check out flea markets and thrift stores to put together a collection of plates.

You can either set the two support poles in the ground, or put them in buckets filled with concrete (get a step-by-step in this how-to). Write your name and wedding date on the bottom of the photo frame, which you can make with poster board or foam board. Then, attach it to the poles with oversized clothespins, which you can find in most craft stores or online.

17. MacramΓ© Yarn Hanging

This is doable even if you don't have macramΓ© skills, but give yourself a little extra time for this one. See how to put it (and a matching yarn chandelier) together here.
