Wedding DIYs (See Jane Craft)

While I wait for my friend's pictures of our weekend in NYC, I thought I might share what I'm planning in terms of DIY wedding projects.  Sometimes I think I may have taken on too much, and other times I think that there's so much more I can do.  I bit the bullet a few weeks back and started to order some necessary supplies.  I received some of my craft materials in the mail last week and plan to tackle some of them this weekend--perhaps while sipping on coffee with whipped cream (my signature drink) coupled with a Bravo TV marathon blaring in the background.

The projects at hand:
I'll add some twine or striped string and double up for people who bring dates.
I'll need my mom's help making these.
I won't personalize them, but I will display them next to jars of sparklers.

Crafty, I'm not, so please cross your fingers that these turn out well.  If all goes as planned, I can't wait to post my steps and ultimately show you the end result!
