Mr and Mrs Wedding Sign

I made these signs to hang on the backs of our chairs at dinner. They are up-cycled garden signs I found in a pound shop. (I love pound shops, you can always find little treasures that don’t break the bank!)    I copied the font from a sign I liked online but if you don’t feel confident enough to go free hand, you could always trace it on. I then used chalk paint to paint the design on to the slate.    I’m planning on using a glue gun to stick some fake flowers on and finish them off nicely. You could also change the rope to a ribbon and bow if you liked, I quite like the rope for the rustic barn feel for my wedding. Advertisements
