Embellishments. Every little detail on your DIY wedding invitation counts. That's why when you are making your own wedding invitations, you should consider adding embellishments. Embellishments that have been used in DIY wedding invitations are feathers (tucked behind a ribbon), paper flowers (you can find these premade in craft stores), fabric and ribbons. If you want, you can also add paper butterflies, rhinestones, confetti, buttons, or dried and pressed leaves and flowers. You can find all of these items in your local craft stores.
