One way to reduce the budget you spend on your wedding decorations is by making them yourself. Making your own unique wedding decorations sounds difficult, but in fact is quite simple. All you have to do is take a look around the house and choose some items that could help you create unusual wedding decorations. Here are some ideas of such items:

5 unique and unusual wedding decorations ideas

Ice cream cones

If you are having your wedding on summer and your tables have rectangle shape, ice cream cones make an interesting choice. All you have to do is make sure that the cones are lined with plastic sheets so that the water won’t penetrate through the cones.  Fill the ice cream cones with flowers and line them along the table. Chose hydrangea, daisies or dahlia as flowers and your unique wedding decorations are done.

CD cases

Now that you have an IPod or you listen to music at your phone, you don’t need your old CD-s anymore. So why not use their cases to create some unusual wedding decorations? Put one closed case on the bottom. Take another two CD cases and open them to create 90 degrees angles. Glue them together and you have your unique pots for your wedding decorations. Adorn the cases with modern flowers that have geometrical shapes like dahlias or celosia.



Cantaloupe halves

Following the same idea as pineapple or squash used as decorations, choose halves of cantaloupes. Carve into the fruit but make sure you let 0.5 inches of its core where you will stick the flowers. You should choose some exotic flowers like orchids or strelitzia in order to create some unique wedding decorations.

Piano keyboards

This only apply if you have a keyboard from an old piano or organ. Put the piano keyboards next to each other around a box. Make sure that the box has the same height or is a little shorter and stick them together. Keep the black and white arrangement. Use anemones and gerberas to complete your unusual wedding decorations.

Sophisticated hats

For these unusual wedding decorations I have in mind the sophisticated hats that British women wear at horse races. So if your grandmother, or your aunt had a passion for these hats in her youth and you still have them somewhere around the house, now is the time to use them in order to create your unique wedding decorations. Fill them with flowers and accessorize them with lace ribbons and vintage brooches. Use roses or tulips.
