DIY Bridesmaid Gifts


When it comes to bridesmaids gifts, there are no rules. Your fav gal pals are happy to be sharing your big day with you and aren’t expecting anything from you but smiles and a thank you! But for those who have helped you put your special day together, here are some ways to show a small token of your appreciation.

DIY Gifts are my favorite because they are customizable, thoughtful and fun to make! Not to mention, they can be an inexpensive alternative to department store finds.


DIY Jewelry or Nightstand Tray
Grab a frame, drill holes on the sides for drawer pulls, screw in the drawer pulls and change out the framed picture with fabric and/or a picture of you and your bestie!















DIY Spa in a Jar

This is a great gift because who doesn’t LOVE to be pampered? Treat your girls to a stay-vacation worthy night with this cute mason jar spa package. It’s easy!










DIY Personalized Mugs

These mugs are thoughtful, creative and quick to make! Grab a sharpie, colored or designed mug and an oven set at 430 degrees for 30 minutes. Make sure to cool overnight!










Enjoy making your crafts! Upload your pictures and tag socaleventplanners!
