I love this project because it easy, quick, inexpensive, and it makes a big impact in my home! I love large pieces of wall art! It has become a problem though, I'm running out of wall space! I also love this project because you can personalize it for your family!
I choose to do my wedding anniversary (April 21st) for my numbers in my wall art, but the possibilities are endless! Today I will show you what I made for a friend's wedding!
I started with a large piece of plywood I got at Home Depot for a little under $6!
I measured and cut the piece into four smaller pieces (2ft x 1ft. each)
For the ones I'm showing you today I used my friends initials her name is Michelle so I used an "M" and her fiancé's name starts with a J so I did an M & J.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut letters out of card stock and then I used the card stock as a stencil. For the &; I traced the symbol since that was easier than using the negative space from the card stock. Then I used Annie Sloan Old White (since I had it on hand) and a small angled watercolor brush to paint the letters by hand.
All in all it took me about 30 minutes to do and I love how they turned out! The signs are also pretty lightweight which makes them easy to hang (I just used some command strips)!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! I would love to hear if you have any other ideas for how you could personalize these signs!
