How to Decorate an Urn

Memorials are an essential part of the grieving process, and they can be even more meaningful when you have plenty of options. When looking for a suitable urn, it's essential to consider your budget and what you want to do with your loved one's ashes after they've been placed inside. This guide will help you choose a type of urn, colour and size that will look beautiful while also being functional while holding a loved one's ashes.

Choose your urn style.

When choosing an urn, you must consider the style of the urn you want. Many different types of urns are available on the market today, so take some time to think about what kind of look you want for your loved one's remains. Some common styles include:

  • Cremation urns - These are typically made from wood or metal and can be either plain or decorative (like those shown above). They come in various colours as well * Cremation jewellery - This type includes pendants and rings that hold ashes inside them; they're often made from materials like sterling silver or gold-plated brass.

How to pick a colour

When choosing a colour, the first thing to consider is what the urn will look like in your home. Is it going to stand out? Are you okay with that? If so, then go ahead and pick a bright colour!

If not, consider how the urn would fit into your decor. For example, are any items in this room similar in tone or hue? If so, it might be best to go with something neutral like white or black instead of red or green--you want everything else on display in this space (including yourself) to complement whatever shade of greyish-brown stain has been justify behind by years of dust bunnies accumulating inside the woodwork.

How to choose the right urn size

Choosing the right size urn is a crucial step in decorating one. First, it's important to remember that the size of an urn should be proportional to its contents, so if you have a small person, you'll want to get them an appropriately sized casket and urn. The same rule also applies to more significant people; if they were tall or heavy in life, their ashes would take up more space than someone shorter or lighter on their feet.

In addition to ensuring that your loved one has enough room for all of their remains (and possibly some keepsake items), there are practical considerations: what kind of home do they live in? Are there any architectural limitations on where they can go? Will there be room for visitors at all times--or do they need special accommodations like corner shelves or cabinets built specifically into stairwells?

How to add a nameplate or inscription


You can use a marker or a laser engraver to add a nameplate or inscription.

  • Markers work well for small projects and will not damage the urn. They are also easy to find at most craft stores and can be purchased in many colours.

  • Consider using a laser engraver if you want something more permanent or artistic on your project than what could be achieved with markers alone. A laser engraver allows for intricate designs and lettering that cannot be achieved with traditional art supplies such as markers or paint brushes.

It's essential to find a way to incorporate keepsakes into your memorial.

It's essential to find a way to incorporate keepsakes into your memorial. This can be done by placing them directly on the urn, keeping them separate and displaying them in another location. Keepsakes can be anything from photos of your loved one, the jewellery they often wore, and old love letters they wrote that you still have tucked away. Of course, whatever you choose will depend on how much time has passed since their death and what kind of person they were; if this was someone who likes dressing up all the time, then maybe try adding some fancy earrings as a keepsake!
