(BPT) - Most brides have a vision of a beautifully decorated and themed wedding reception. Luckily, it is easy to achieve the wedding decor you see in your mind’s eye with a few easy and inexpensive do-it-yourself projects.

Tables they’ll talk about

You don’t have to settle for the same old table settings and centerpieces when it comes to putting your mark on your reception. Find knick-knacks or trinkets that mean something special to you and then use spray paint to turn them into a coordinated collection perfect for sparking dinner conversation. For example, paint mismatched candlesticks and Christmas bulbs with Krylon Shimmer Metallic and ColorMaster spray paint in your wedding colors to create a glistening and glamorous centerpiece. Similarly, turn lovebird figures and plain tins into one-of-a kind favors that are sure to please.

Novel napkin rings

Napkins are a necessary dinner table accessory, so what do you do to make them stylish and add another personalized touch? Custom-made napkin rings are just the right detail. Wood or metal rings are often available at your local craft store. Then make them your own by gluing on personalized tokens, such as small decorations ornaments or initials, and spray painting to coordinate with your other table decorations for a completely classy look.

Table numbers

Numbering the tables at your reception is an easy way to direct guests to their seats. It’s simple to add an elegant touch by creating your own table numbers using inexpensive photo frames. Whether you purchase frames from a store, garage sale or by collecting them from around your own home, you can create a cohesive and classy collection in no time.

Once you have your frames, purchase house numbers (like those used to show an address) that will fit within the glass area of your picture frames. Remove the glass and wipe all surfaces with alcohol to achieve a clean surface. Spray paint the frame and numbers the color of your choice. Metallic paints create a classy look that complements your main wedding colors. While those items dry, spray the glass with Krylon Looking Glass Mirror-Like spray paint. Once all the pieces are dry, reassemble the frames and use an adhesive to bond the number to the front of the glass. When setting up for your reception, nest these numbers among your other table decorations for an exquisite presentation.

Card catcher

Looking for a creative space for guests to put cards? Convert an old bird house into a beautiful vessel to capture cards. Whether metal or wood, start with a clean surface and paint it in your wedding colors and complementary metallics for a surprisingly classy simple solution for cards.

With a bit of inspiration and spray paint, you’ll have a wedding table to wow you guests. For information on these and other Krylon products and projects visit www.krylon.com.
