26. DIY Wedding: Monogrammed Aisle Runner

I have a ton of projects “in the works” for our house, but none are completed.  I thought I’d take this opportunity to show you yet another project from our [almost] completely DIY wedding!  Today’s project: DIY Monogrammed Aisle Runner.

Let me start off by saying that I did not dream up this project on my own.  I found fantastic instructions over at Road to the Aisle.  I followed her instructions almost exactly, so I’m not going to waste time rehashing them here.  However, I will give you a list of the materials I used and the cost breakdown!

DIY Monogrammed Aisle Runner

Materials:

aisle runner (make use of that 50% off Joann coupon!)
large monogram printout (I used Photoshop to make ours)
pencil
acrylic paints
paintbrushes

Total cost: $20.33

I really enjoyed this project.  It was fairly easy, and the final results were gorgeous.

Even though the project turned out great, we didn’t actually end up using it as an aisle runner.  Our venue had hardwood floors, and I was too worried about the wedding party (especially me!) slipping or tripping in the aisle.

I didn’t want to just not use it and waste a good $20 (that I could have put towards something else), so we had to find another use for it.

And then it came to me.  There is a large staircase leading up to the ballroom, why not just hang it over the railing as a banner?  So that’s what we did.

Didn’t that work out well?

We ended up keep the monogram portion after the wedding (we just chopped it off the end).  I’m still trying to figure out something unique to do with it, but for now it’s in a box with other wedding keepsakes.

I’ve had fun sharing this project with you.  I hope you enjoyed it!

XO,
Gabriella
