A big part of our wedding decor was an underlying ‘happily ever after’ root.  We incorporated this wherever we could.  Our wedding was at a vineyard and was 100% outdoors.  Its very common these days to have a “gifts” area and we wanted a ‘welcome’ type sign for our guests to know this is where to start their day.  Our gifts area was a place to leave cards, presents and sign our “guest book.”  Although the guest book will be described more in another post (click here to be check that out).

So we wanted a big Welcome sign and ended up making this:

Creating this sign was very easy but gave the welcoming feel I was hoping for.

Supplies Needed:

  • Picture frame
  • Paint (we used gray and ivory)
  • Paint brush (large for the frame and small for the writing)
  • Burlap
  • Staple gun

Here’s what I did:

First: I painted the frame gray, which was a color in our wedding decor.

Second: Cut a piece of burlap to fit the frame.

Third: Took my sweet time to hand write the phrase I choose on the burlap.

Fourth: Used the staple gun to secure the sign to the frame and voilà !
