Since choosing Pine Creek Underground Winery as our reception venue, my brain has been buzzing with fantastic, rustic DIY projects; most of which involve mason jars, burlap and wooden signs.

I spoke to my future father-in-law and he agreed to help with the Mr & Mrs hanging signs and the sign posts I want to use.  I found 8oz Mason Jars available in bulk online for $0.35 per jar (why don’t keyboards have a cents sign??) but still need to find some larger 16 to 18oz jars as well.  I have a hunch I’ll be buying a lot of spaghetti sauce in the future.

Next, I’ll be antiquing around Pittsburgh with Mom and Dad.  They’re pros at all this so they probably know some great places to look but if any of you Yinzers out there know a great spot for antiques, please let me know!!

If you want to take a look at a few of the DIY projects we’re doing, check the links after the jump!!

Rustic DIY Projects

Karen’s Coffee Can Lanterns

I actually found this Design Sponge how-to about 2 years ago and have been DYING to try it ever since.  The cans have been in the basement for 9 months but now I have a great excuse to pull them out and start messing around.  I just have to get the tools and we’ll be in business!!!

Burlap & Doily Luminaries

These Doily Luminaries are so dainty and flirty.  Perfect for a vintage style, outdoor wedding and incredibly easy to make.  The hardest part of the entire project may be tracking down the doilies!!  Amanda’s instructions are very easy to follow and she gives great advise on how to make the lamps come out flawlessly.

Mason Jar Lanterns

The Full Moxie’s step by step tutorial on how to make these lanterns is so easy you’ll wonder why you even had to read it.  These lanterns are extremely effective as a nice romantic touch to a rustic, harvest event and can either be hung or set on tables.

If you really want to get fancy with these little babies, you can follow Celeste’s DIY on how to paint the glass at Tatertots and Jello.
