DIY: WEDDING CEREMONY SIGN

You can opt out of the traditional ‘brides side’ and ‘grooms side’ with this cute DIY. This enables both sides of the family to enjoy each others company on your big day.

What you need:

Paint

Paint Brushes

Hammer

Sand Paper

Nails

Wood Glue

Timber boards

Support timber

 

Method:

1. Depending on what timber you are using, sand back and brush down the timber to clean. (We used old weatherboards that had been sitting outside for a while so they where very dirty and needed a good clean)

step 1

2. On a flat surface, arrange your timber ensuring they fit neatly next to one another with no gaps in between.

step 3

3. Using the wood glue, glue the timber pieces together for added strength. The glue will dry clean so it doesn’t matter if you are a little messy with it.

step 4

4. On the back of the sign, hammer the support timber on the back. Make sure the nails aren’t too long that they go through the front of the sign.

step 5

5. Using a grey lead pencil first, roughly write down your script on the timber. Once you are happy with the script and the way it fits on the timber, use the paint brush to paint the script. You may need to go over the paint a couple of times to make sure the script is clear.
