I’ve always been a fan of watercolors.  In fact, I have a few displayed in my home.  Both my mother and mother-in-law watercolor paint (they took a class together!)  My mom even watercolored thank you cards that we used in our out-of-town bags for our wedding (yes, I hand wrote a thank you card for every.single.bag!)  And my husband and I collected watercolors from our favorite honeymoon spots in Italy.

Despite my love of watercolor, I had never thought about translating that into a wedding detail – until now!

That last idea is my favorite and is a super easy DIY.  All you need is a bunch of clear votives from your local craft store, dollar store, or Target, watercolor paints and a brush.  Oh, and water!  Just paint the inside of your votives whatever shades you want, let them dry, and put in a votive.  So cheap and easy, and super pretty!
So tell me, what do you think of watercolor details?  Which is your favorite of the DIY ideas?  How genius are those watercolor votives!?
