DIY Themed Urn

DIY Cremation Urn Design

We offer several simple, beautiful, American-made solid wood cremation urns which make it easy for you to create your own "themed" urn to honor the unique favorite hobbies and tastes of your loved one.

Our Photo Display Cremation Urns are available in a variety of wood types in Portrait (vertical) or Landscape (horizontal) formats. These urns have a cutout picture frame area which you can use to personalize the urn. You can use a photo of your loved one, of course, but you can also make it a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) themed urn to emphasize any hobby or passion.

Was he a lifetime San Francisco 49ers fan? Print out a 49ers logo or a favorite Joe Montana / Jerry Rice snapshot and insert it into the 4x6 photo frame.

Did she love touring up and down the coast touring lighthouses? If none from our collection of lighthouse urns seems to be the perfect fit, or if they are out of your budget, get the affordable photo frame urn and put in her hand-drawn lighthouse sketch from your visit to the Montauk Point Lighthouse on your trip to celebrate your 25th anniversary.

A graduate from the University of Alabama who followed the Tide all his life might best be remembered by a Crimson Tide themed urn, but officially licensed products can get quite expensive. The price point on our photo display urn is much more reasonable, and if you're worried that the novelty of a football team-themed urn might wear off after a while, you can always change out the picture to a family photograph or a favorite portrait.

Here are a few ideas of what you can do with our picture frame urns to create an affordable DIY themed memorial urn. Simply add a photo or art print to create your own theme:

  • Sports teams, logos, or stadiums
  • Favorite fictional universe (Star Wars, Marvel, Casablanca, etc)
  • Literature (poems or quotes from Pride & Prejudice, Lord of the Rings, etc)
  • Hobbies and interests, such as:
    • Fishing
    • Hunting
    • Gardening
    • Photography
    • Motorcycles
    • Trains
    • Dragonflies
    • Disney
    • Travel
    • Surfing
    • Sailing
    • Collecting

The list could go on! Your loved one was a unique person, so you could even select several different themes and rotate the photos/art every few months. It's up to you!
