Is it just me, or are wedding décor ideas taking over Pinterest? It could be attributed to the 20,000 wedding boards that I follow… Or it could be a national epidemic? Regardless, a trend that I am particularly drawn to is “Rustic Style” wedding accessories. Walnut Hollow carries a lot of items (such as our Rustic Pallet Program and Basswood Country Rounds and Planks) that work very nicely with the Rustic and Shabby Chic wedding trends. They inspired me to create this Ceremony sign!
I wanted to showcase the Rustic Market Sign as Stylish Do-it-Yourself Signage for a Rustic Wedding.
I started by spraying the Rough-Hewn Pine with Krylon Gloss Ballet Slipper Spray Paint. I sprayed 2 coats. I liked the way that the natural knots in the wood were still visible through the paint.
Then I painted the stake with Americana Mississippi Mud. (Luckily, the mud in Mississippi is a beautiful shade of brown. Not like the mud up here in Wisconsin.)
I measured out some Simplicity Trim using the signboard as a guide in length.
Then I applied Aleene’s Fabric Fusion directly to the signboard and pressed the trim into place.
I found some more scraps of trim and added them for a little bit of extra embellishment. I liked the way the heavier trim looked around the border.
Using a hot glue gun, I applied some gorgeous Prima Flowers to the upper left and lower right corners of the sign.
I drew my arrow using a pencil then traced over it with a small paint brush and the same paint I used for the stake. I used a Gold Permapaque Opaque Pigment Marker to add some subtle sparkle to the arrow and to the stake.
And Voila! A Rustic Wedding sign!
