(ARA) - You’ve dreamed of this day your entire life. But often, it can take a king’s ransom to make the fairytale wedding of your dreams a reality. Fortunately, cost-conscious brides have discovered they can plan a wedding that’s fit for a queen -- even on a shoestring budget. All it takes is a little creativity.

“Many brides have discovered they can stretch their wedding budgets by taking on a few simple do-it-yourself projects,” says Rust-Oleum Designer Angie Stinner. “These fun, easy-to-do projects can make any wedding special.”

•Shimmering centerpieces. If you haven’t paid a visit to your neighborhood Dollar Store lately, you may be surprised at the variety of glass vases, jars and containers on the shelves. Choose one, or mix and match several, for each reception table. Then visit the spray paint aisle of your local home center.

Spray paints come in a variety of on-trend colors and finishes - and many are designed for glass or ceramic. Chose a color that coordinates with your wedding decor. Or try something unexpected, like Frosted Sea Glass spray paint. It replicates the look of expensive sea glass for a fraction of the cost. Customize the design using a stencil or place rubber bands around the vase in a random pattern. Spray the entire surface. Then fill your centerpieces with freshly cut flowers, feathers, branches and shells - the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

•A personal touch. Personalization is all the rage in wedding planning today and hand crafted signs are a great way to display a wedding schedule, menu or to add a personal touch to your nuptials.

Craft or hobby stores carry wood plaques in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some come with predrilled holes for hanging. After you’ve selected plaques in the size and shape, coat them with Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint. It comes in variety of colors beyond traditional black and green - like Raspberry and Deep Teal. Once the chalkboard surface is dry, tie ribbons in coordinating colors through the holes for hanging and write names, messages, menus or schedules for a truly personalized touch.

•This is our life. You’ve known most of your wedding guests your entire life, but what about those distant relatives on the groom’s side? Introduce yourselves with a photo timeline. All you need are photos from your past, an easel and a little creativity.

Purchase a sheet of Masonite at your local home center. Then coat the entire surface with Rust-Oleum Magnetic Paint. Add a burst of color with one of this season’s hottest wedding colors like Winter Gray, Candy Pink or Sun Yellow with Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2X spray paint. Hang the photos in chronological order with stylish magnets.
