Wedding Sign

My little sister got married this weekend! I say little because she is 7 years younger than me but she is 25 so not too little 🙂 All grown up and married, it seems like yesterday she was playing with Barbies and I was a senior in high school… time flies. Well I was her matron (sounds old ugh) of honor and my two girlies were her flower girls! My son had the honor of being her ring bearer, but being only 3 giving him priceless small rings wasn’t the best idea. So she had me make him a sign to carry down the aisle!

First we got this blank sign from our local craft store:


Next I typed up the words we wanted in pretty font. Then arranged it on the sign.


Next I used a white charcoal pencil (found at Walmart or a craft store) on the back to cover the area behind the lettering. You can use white chalk but I found the white charcoal pencil was less messy and showed the fine details better.


Then I taped down the words where I wanted them. Using a pencil I went over the letters pressing firmly to transfer the image onto the wooden sign.





Next I used a fine point white paint pen and went over the lettering.



I continued to do this until I finished!



My favorite part is the back! He flipped the sign for on the way back down the aisle 🙂


I think it turned out cute! When I get home I can add the template if anyone is interested 🙂


Thanks for stopping by!
Johanna 🙂

  2. I was wondering if the sign was made of wood? and would be able to post the template?
