Another DIY idea for DIY wedding centerpieces is to use color palettes. Instead of purchasing expensive pre-made color palettes, you can make your own out of inexpensive liquid paints. For this DIY idea, you will need to create a color palette using cream, yellow and blue liquid paints; draw two checkerboard designs on either side of a clean flat surface; cut a series of small circles into the design with your knife; and pastel colored fabric in the same colors as your checkerboard designs to serve as the base for your flowers. Then, attach one blooms to each corner of the palette in a random fashion. For an extra unique look, think of attaching a color palette to your candles and candle's wax.
