As I’m sure you’ll have noticed I’m running modern calligraphy workshops in Manchester (and loving every second!) so I wanted to share some ideas to do with calligraphy. It’s super easy to try your hand at modern calligraphy, and once you’ve mastered the pen you’ll be itching to write on everything you see… so how about making your own wedding table plan?

This modern calligraphy table plan project is quirky, beautiful and only takes a couple of hours to make at home. Its selling point is the gorgeous antique frame; by adding your own hand lettering you’ll give it a personal touch, and the flowers add romance and colour – simply perfect for a rustic, handcrafted wedding!

Wedding crafting doesn’t have to be difficult – and you can easily avoid the tricky bits by choosing your crafty projects carefully. For example: table plans can take weeks to finalise; invitations are fiddly and there are usually dozens of them – avoid! The best approach to wedding DIY is to make fun, easy, decorative touches which won’t steal your weekends away! I have another awesome wedding DIY project from the lovely girls at AO Life to share with you today. Enjoy!
