Fun DIY Ideas for Newlyweds
Moving into a fresh house after getting married can be super exciting. We’re here to help kick off that chapter of your new life with some fresh ways to make that house your home.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
I get it, we are all busy people, especially during the wedding planning process. After the ceremony and fancy receptions, it is time to focus on your new life and home. This is the ultimate guide to some easy, not super time-consuming DIY things to give your home that little something special.
The DIY crafts we’re going to see:
- Easy bake mugs
- Wood photo
- Wine cork bulletin board
Easy Bake Mugs
For this DIY, all you need are two mugs, sharpie(s) and an oven. Take the mugs and you can write a saying, anniversary date, or anything you and your partner want. After you’re done doodling, put them in the oven BEFORE you turn it on. If the mugs go in while the oven is hot, it may crack. Once the mugs are in the oven, set the temperature to 350 and leave it at that temp for 30 minutes. Don’t take it out of the oven until the mugs are completely cooled down, because again, the mugs may crack. If you feel the sharpie hasn’t set enough to your liking, it is perfectly safe to bake them again!
Wood Photo Slab
This requires a few more items than the mug. You’ll need wood (whatever size/thickness you want), gel medium, picture (regular copy paper, not photo paper), damp cloth and mod podge. First, make sure the wood is smooth because you don’t want bumps in your photo. Next, take the gel medium and apply a generous layer onto the surface of the wood, and then place the photo face down onto the wood. Make sure it is laying flat and that there aren’t any air bubbles. Let that dry overnight. Once its dry, take the damp cloth and wet one section at a time. The paper will start to come off and the image will be exposed to the wood. Repeat the process of damping and peeling until the whole image is there. Once its all uncovered, take your mod podge and cover the image and let it dry. Finally, place the picture in a place where you and your partner can reminisce together.
Wine Cork Bulletin Board
It is time to put all of that wine drinking to good use! All you need is a picture frame, hot glue, and corks! If you’re feeling extra fancy, you technically don’t even need a picture frame. This DIY is nice because you have a choice in how creative you want to be. You can either leave the glass in the frame or take it out. The frame can be any size, shape or color. If the corks don’t fit just right, you can always cut them and make it into whatever size you need. Oh, and if you don’t feel like drinking 100 bottles of wine, you can buy wine corks here.
These DIY’s should take less than an hour. You and your partner will have a great time decorating your new home with these ideas, and it’ll definitely be Instagram worthy. If you’re still looking for a home to decorate, check out the listings with a HER agent today!
