Sorry my blog has become very "weddingy" recently, but we have just over two weeks to go, so it's pretty much every day that I'm putting things together.
Since I made my first signs, I have become just a tad sign obsessed! They look really effective and are a simple way to add style to a wedding.
"Thank Pinterest" for all the amazing inspiration out there - I have made things I'd never even thought of before!
This is the meadow where we will be holding our reception. I have taken a few signs up there, just to see how they look. This was made from a stick and a broken old pallet.
The sign below I saw featured on the weddingchicks.com and decided to try and make my own out of a laminate floor board.
They have all turned out really well, and didn't take too much time to put together.
For the rough wood from the pallets, I hand painted the lettering and flowers and leaves with a fine brush and acrylic paints. On smoother wood, like laminate, my chalk pen works a treat.
I also picked up some slate signs, the rectangular one is from Poundland and the heart shape from the works. Again the chalk pen works brilliantly on these.
We live near a timber merchant, so he has kindly let us take 10 old pallets. My Dad has been very busy, so far, making three crates and a table!
I've yet to get my hands on these yet, some will be used as bottle crates, some will be stacked, and some will be used for flowers.
Work in progress includes a tree swing, and a sweet stand, and more smaller crates.
Enjoy the sunshine, let's hope it lasts!
