Weddings are expensive. Even when you DIY everything you are still looking at a hefty chunk of change. Add to that the fact that you want your wedding to be unique and special and it can seem like an impossible task. Last year I had the awesome privilege of being a part of some of my best friends’ wedding. I helped them with decorations, photos, and the inevitable emergencies that crop up on the big day. One of my favorite projects from the wedding was this unique DIY wedding guest book.

- The adhesive on these probably won’t be strong enough to keep it in place, especially once guests start signing it. Make it stronger by applying Mod Podge to the back before attaching it to the canvas.
Allow Mod Podge to dry completely.
Have guests sign your canvas during the wedding with Sharpie markers.
- Easily make this match your décor by choosing coordinated marker colors.
After the wedding, seal your entire canvas with Mod Podge and allow it to dry completely.
This unique DIY wedding guest book becomes a beautiful piece of décor that you can display on your wall for years to come. The best part is that you can change the style by simply changing the wall sticker and colors. I already had the canvas for this project so it literally only cost me a dollar! Even if you have to buy the canvas you are still only looking at a few bucks to create a unique wedding memento that will last forever. That is much less than a traditional guest book would cost you. Be honest, how often would you open your guest book to look at the signatures anyway? Mine went in a box after the wedding and I never looked at it again. Don’t let that happen to you. Save your money and enjoy your special day long after it ends.
I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
