Going the DIY route isn't always worth the time, effort and cost of materials. But if you can get multiple uses out of your project – like, say, as a ceremony backdrop at your wedding, then as a hanging behind the bed in your apartment – it makes taking on that project just a little (ok, a lot) more worthwhile.

There's a wealth of ideas for wedding DIY projects on Pinterest and across the web, but we gathered ten particularly beautiful and useful ones here.
