Remember that amazing DIY Washington, DC wedding on Embassy Row? Maybe the Star Wars Wedding Cake will help? Well the bride, Elizabeth, is helping out with today’s DIY Wednesday post, sharing how her and husband made their awesome DIY wedding favors, custom magnets!

Elizabeth & Oliver’s Custom DIY Magnet Wedding Favors

From Elizabeth:

We made them with a button-maker that Oliver’s old bandmate had.

For the images, we made some out of our wedding “logo” stationary and then cut out pictures from all of the bridal magazines that I had leftover as well as some travel mags – flowers, kites, anything that was visually interesting.

After the images were cut, we made buttons.

Rather than putting the pin component, we used epoxy and glued magnets on the back (bought at a craft store). We bought little bags from the craft store as well.

We made a whole lot of magnets – 5per couple/35+ couples. It was a pretty decent project and I would say took at least 10 hours to complete.
