This is our first DIY wedding card and its main element is the bride and groom clothespin 👰 🤵. Once again I tried my hand at lettering. Unfortunately, I left it for the last minute and it came out very average 🤐 Having learned from experience, I also prepared wishes to be printed, which you can download below 😁

You will need:
- Card base – I used a cream card
- Markers – I used acrylic markers
- Tulle or lace veil for the bride
- Self-adhesive crystals – useful for decorating veils
- Universal glue
- Fineliner and brushpen – to make a personalized inscription. Alternatively, you can write the names of the bride and groom with a fineliner, and print the bottom wishes from our template.
Bride and groom clothespin
The central element of the card is the bride and groom 🤵👰 made of a painted clothespin. Initially, I tried with an assembled clothespin but the decorated in this way looked average, so I decided to disassemble it, paint it and then put it together.
Acrylic markers are perfect for decorating the clothespin. If you don’t have any, you can try using ordinary markers, although here a lot depends on the wood. If it is raw, the marker may melt, and if waxed, an ordinary marker may not cover the entire surface.
A tulle veil and crystals on the veil add a lot of charm. I glued the tulle on the tip of the clothespin and, additionally, gently along the entire length of the clothespin, because otherwise it would stick out a lot.

Completing the card comes down to writing or sticking wishes and glueing the bride and groom clothespin.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
