DIY: Simple Rustic Wedding Invitations

Impress your guests with these timeless and elegant rustic wedding invitations. 

What You’ll Need

  • Invitation
  • Scissors
  • Paper doily
  • String
  • Paper heart

Getting Started

I printed my own invitation on cardstock paper making them 4 ½” x 6” and used a 9 ½” paper doily. The size can vary depending on the size of doily you have and if you want there to be a space when folded so you can see more of the invitation or not. 

Step One

You will first cut the top and bottom off the doily to fit the size of your invitation.  

Step Two

Next, you will fold in each side of the paper doily.

Step Three

You will then cut some of your string to wrap around the invitation. I cut a 2” heart out of the same cardstock as the invitation and used a hole punch in the corner. Attach the heart to the string and tie a bow. 

All Done!

Your invitation is all finished. You can personalize it by adding both your initials to the paper heart or add your wedding date and your guests can use that as a save the date reminder.
