DIY Your Wedding with the Bridal Collection by David Tutera

Back when I was planning my wedding in 2009, Pinterest didn’t exactly exist yet {at least I wasn’t aware of it if it did} and my local craft stores didn’t exactly have a whole lot to offer this DIY girl to work with.  Fast forward a few years and WOW!  The products available and the resources to find ideas are off the charts.  Now, I don’t need to plan another wedding for myself as I’m a happily married Mrs., but my sweet cousin is preparing for her big day this coming November.

So, I was thrilled at the thought of being able to help her create some awesome decor for her special day using the new David Tutera Bridal
Collection at Michael’s.

I was lucky enough to receive a sampling of just some of the budget friendly products in the David Tutera Bridal Collection line.  Just look at all these goodies…


Seriously…we could do some serious bling-blinging with all those rhinestones!

My immediate thoughts for a few projects included a simple, but elegant DIY Card Box and some pretty DIY vases using a lot of the products pictured above.

DIY Wedding Card Box

To make the DIY Wedding Card Box, I used:

a square 10 x 10 inch white cardboard box

Bridal Collection by David Tutera Silver Mesh Roll {bling-on-a-roll}

Bridal Collection by David Tutera Brooch

Bridal Collection by David Tutera Accent Pins

Bridal Collection by David Tutera Self-Stick Shimmer Sheet

floral stems

hot glue/glue gun

To assemble the card box, I found the center of the base and wrapped the “bling-on-a-roll” around it, securing it in a few spots with hot glue.  On the front of the box, on the rhinestones, I added a pretty brooch from the line of products.  Then, around the edge of the lid of the box, I used the self-stick shimmer sheet to add a little bling to the top.  The shimmer sheet was SUPER easy to use and the fact that I could easily cut it to the size I needed was a huge plus!  To the top of the lid, I hot glued two accent pins to act as a handle to lift the lid off the box.

I was also eager to use the diamond charm accents as both a vase filler and table accent.  I had a few glass vases around the house and wanted to continue experimenting with the “bling-on-a-roll” and a few more items from the Bridal Collection by David Tutera line.

Around the top of each vase I had, I adhered the “bling-on-a-roll” using hot glue once again.

Words cannot express how easy this step was.  And the best part was that I only needed a few dots of glue for the entire piece to stay in place.

I arranged some pretty green & purple floral stems and picks and added lots of bling from David Tutera’s collection, including the Pearl Rhinestone Crown Picks and {believe it or not} a package of Hair Snaps!  As a vase filler I used either green spanish moss or the Diamond Charm Accents.

There are so many more fabulous products in the Bridal Collection by David Tutera line at Michael’s, I know my cousin will enjoy DIY’ing and making one of the most memorable days in her life both beautiful and affordable!


The David Tutera bridal collection includes: Affordable fashion accessories, unique décor elements, floral accents and other embellishments, all designed to help you tell your own special love story.

Adding your own unique touch is a lot easier than you think! It’s all about turning ordinary wedding elements into something special.

Many of the products, like Bling on a Roll and self-stick rhinestones, are very versatile. (For example, you can use either of the above to add sparkle to any wedding decoration or accessory!)

    Wow Stunning!! I’m with ya, I feel like even just a few years ago there wasn’t a whole lot out there for the DIY wedding, and now it’s everywhere, which is great!! I have four younger sisters to help plan weddings for, so I was so excited to see the David Tutera had a cool line :) Everything came out so pretty! ~Bre

    Where did you find your cardboard box? I’ve been to Michaels and Hobby Lobby, and they don’t carry a box big enough to hold a lot of cards.
