Marrying your soulmate is a day you will never forget. But a display of wedding keepsakes can be as stale as wedding cake on your one-year anniversary. This easy DIY for wedding keepsakes incorporates unique mementos from the day, and displays them in ways you may not have considered.
A shadowbox is a great way to display special keepsakes. I used a framed engagement photo with the date etched, the small bag the ring arrived in, the pen used to sign the guest book, wedding invitation with vellum and wrap, roses from the bridal bouquet, and a graphic of the wedding month. What would you include in your shadowbox?
Rather than letting these items languish in a drawer or box, or between a pages of a book, display them! Then you can relive that special day every day of the year!
Make a special gallery wall outside the baby’s nursery and fill it with photos of mom and dad and other special memorabilia. For one item on the wall, I created a shadowbox of our own baby photos and our childhood Bibles.
