DIY Wedding Signs

I am loving the DIY wedding signs lately! 
It is easy to do and a unique touch for your day. These signs add so much character to a wedding, and it is easy to be creative and add your own touches on them.

They don't cost much money, and if you are lucky you may already have some of the things you need!

Here is what you Need:
1. A piece of wood. Or a few depending on how many signs you plan to make.
2. Leftover paint. You do not need much maybe half a cup.
3. A small paintbrush.
4. A few hours.

How To:

Draw on a piece of paper the word you want to paint on the wood. Remember Bubble Letters in elementary school? This is the time to re-visit that skill! Or you can go the easy route and find a font you like on Word and print them on the computer. Make sure it is the size you want it to appear on the sign. With scissors, cut out the word, e.g. "Wedding." 

Place the paper on top of  the wood and tape it in place so it doesn't move.
Draw a pencil line along the edges of the word, so that when you remove the paper
you can see the outline of "Wedding."

Now you are ready to add the paint. Use a small paint brush to fill in the penciled
outline with your paint. It may be a good idea to go over the word a few times to
make sure it is able to be seen from a distance.

When your paint is dry, cut the piece of wood (if you haven't done so already) to the
chosen size.Then you can attach it to a pole with a few screws, or use a rope
or chain to hang it from an archway.

I hope you have fun creating your own signs. Be creative and make them "you!" 
I would love to see them so send me a picture
on Twitter or shoot me and Email with them!

Have fun!
