Wedding season is upon us and even if we’re not the ones getting married, we’re always excited to attend the weddings of our friends and family and watch their happiness unfold.
Just in case you agree that making your own wedding gifts is the best idea but you need a little bit of inspiration when it comes to deciding on what to make and how, here are 15 beautiful DIY knitted and crocheted wedding gifts that anyone would feel lucky to get and that you’ll have a total blast making!
Wedding throw blanket
Any hand knitted blanket has the potential to become a family heirloom. Even people who don’t knit can recognize that afghans and blankets take time, care, and a lot of effort.
Knitted fried egg pot holders
Does the couple you’re making a wedding gift for have a sense of humour and a collective love for funny, kitschy things that don’t necessarily make sense but that are just a lot of fun?
Cecilia wedding shawl
Perhaps you’re a close friend or family member of the bride and you’d really love to give her something beautiful a little bit early so she can actually use if at the wedding (or at least during her bridal photoshoot) rather than just after? Then perhaps a lace shawl or wrap that she can throw on when she gets chilly without detracting from the look of her dress is the best idea!
Scalloped table runner
Are you a bit newer to the world of yarn crafts than intricate lace knitting really allows for, but you’re proud of what you can do and you’re still intent on using your new skills to show your loved ones how much you care?
Winter Apples mittens
Perhaps you’re attending a winter wedding and, even though most of the ceremony and reception will be indoors, there will still be parts of the day where the bride has to encounter chilly winds getting from place to place? Of course, she’ll want to bundle up at least a little bit but she’ll still want to wear things that won’t detract from her beautiful look too much on her special day.
