I could go on and on about it.  But I know this blog is about the Wedding Signs, so read on, see lots more pictures, and get inspired.  There’s no reason you can’t make some personalized signs for an upcoming event!

DIY Wooden Sign


Some projects just seem more meaningful than others…and that was the case with this DIY Wooden Sign celebrating adoption.  It was needed for a planned photo shoot.  And, I must say, when I saw the pictures, my heart positively melted.  Of course, you can make this sign say whatever you want, in the color of your choice.  This tutorial merely shows you what I used to achieve this sort of distressed, rustic look.  Continue Reading →
