Wedding Wednesday: Handmade Signs

While I was flipping through the pages of my civil ceremony (wedding) photos, last night, I got inspired to post an easy do it yourself project, that will add a very personal touch to any event.

For our civil ceremony last year, Gabriel and I made a couple of signs that would adorn the cliff we would be exchanging vows on. Since we were keeping things simple and modest, we decided this would add a very personal (and romantic) touch to the atmosphere.

We had found the scraps of wood in my parents garage, they were doing renovations! Hehehe, and the next day we hauled them with us to the island. Night fell and there we were in bed, painting our cute little signs for our wedding the next day. 

Supplies for 2 signs:
1. 2 long thin pieces of wood
2. 2 rectangle pieces of wood
3. 4 nails
4. Hammer
5. Paint and brushes


1. Hammer nail into top and bottom of square piece (onto long piece)
2. Apply paint (word/drawing)
3. Dry 

These handmade signs are great for any occasion being held outdoors; weddings, birthdays, even baby showers!
