DIY: Make Your Own Ketubah

From the Planets Align Ketubah, available from New Ketubah

I have a special place in my heart for Portland artist Tsilli Pines. She helped me with a project over a year ago, and I have adored her ever since.

I was poking around her New Ketubah site to see what new stuff was there, and I came across a DIY tutorial about how to make your own Ketubah. I love when talented artists share their insights into producing truly beautiful work! She has a post about using rubber stamps, as well as a post about simply using pretty paper (and stuff about framing--the list goes on...). So generous!

Thank you, Tsilli, for helping the rest of us to produce meaningful and memorable artifacts from our wedding. You're awesome!

A ketubah is a work of art that uses images and words to express the love and commitment of your marriage vows. While the ketubah has its roots in the Jewish wedding tradition, its beauty has become embraced by couples from all different religions and cultures. You can learn more at my websure, Tsilli's, or any of the other ketubah artists online.

Hi Sara! You are too, too kind. I'm so psyched to see the DIY ketubah project here! I was energized when we first connected and I saw your blog. There are so many ways to have a joyous celebration and meaningful ritual objects without spending a lot of money. It's awesome that you continue to share all kinds of fun ideas and techniques for people who are going the DIY route.
