It’s officially wedding season! We’re getting down to the final days before my sister’s wedding- can’t wait to share the pictures from her big day!
The wedding décor may or may not include this rustic wood monogram:
It’s seriously simple to make – I promise!
First, I made a monogram in the font I liked in iPiccy. I then uploaded it to Staples Copy & Print online, and I ordered an engineering print (they’re really big & printed on thin paper – cost less than $2):
I measured out how big I wanted to sign to be, and took a trip to my local hardware store. I had them cut down pine boards to the size I wanted (mine were 21 inches long). I then added some scrap wood to the back with nails and wood glue. I stained it with my favorite stain (more details here)
Then I went to Michael’s and got some new Sharpie paint markers – they’ve got a ton of colors, but I only wanted black for this project:
I used this technique to mark where I wanted the paint on the wood:
The last time I used this technique, I used a thin paint brush. Using paint pens was SO much easier!!
I think it’s going to look great as part of her rustic wedding décor:
I think it’ll look great in their apartment too! I might make one for myself…
If you want to make one too, look for sales on Sharpie paint markers at Michael’s!
