Simple DIY Burlap and Lace Wedding Invitation Tutorial
Step 1 – Design and print off simple invitations on brown paper. Make sure to get your RSVP included as well! Also, it’s a good idea to try and match the brown paper up with your invitations unless you’re going the snazzy route and getting different colored invitations to match your accent color!
Step 2 – Get accent colored ribbon. This is to tie together the entire invitation packet and hold your lace doily around your papers. You can make this ribbon as thin or as wide as you want, however we found it much easier to handle thinner ribbon and it also made the invitations easier to mail!
Step 3 – Buy lace doilies. Lace doily sets are available in 4”, 8” 12” and many sizes in between! The easiest one is to get an 8” lace doily set and simply trim it down like we did in the photos. There are tons at your local store (Wal-Mart, Target, etc), or you can shop online:

Step 4 – Now that you’ve got the lace doilies, you can then begin to wrap them around your invitations and fold them in place. You can cut the excess fabric ahead of time if you’ve got the tools (a craft paper cutter), or you can simply cut them while they are already on the invitations themselves using either scissors or a box cutter.
Step 5 – Tie the beautiful burlap and lace invitations together with your ribbon. You can be creative and loop the ribbon through the lace holes on the doily, or you can simply place it on top and tie it. Use some super glue to securely adhere the ribbon together then place it in your envelopes!
