DIY a wedding guest sign-in board
Want a different approach rather than the traditional sign-in book? Then let’s DIY a wedding guest sign-in board! What do you say?
1 x 4 pine wood
Sander or sandpaper
Brad nailer or screws
First – Cut
Use the chop saw to cut the pine. Cut 5 of them into 36” long pieces. In addition, cut 2 – 15” pieces for cross pieces on the back.
Second – Sand
Use the sander or a piece of sandpaper to smooth out the wood. Likewise, sand on the ends and the front. Be sure and wipe it down good. Cheesecloth works well.
Third – Nail
Position the two cross pieces on the back and use the brad nailer to hold all the pieces in place. You need two pieces.
Fourth – Stain
Paint on the stain with a foam brush. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and wipe down with a clean cloth. I use old socks. lol. Let it dry overnight.
Fifth – Paint
Make a heart stencil and paint with white paint.
Use a paint pen to add a name or the word love in the heart.
It is ready for signatures.
Lastly – Decorate the pens
Use white paint pens for the signatures. Of course, I had to gussy up the pens. My husband tells me I never know when to quit. lol.
I had leftover lace from my candles. Put a dab of hot glue close to the tip. Wrap around the pen ending at the top. Use another dab of glue to hold it in place.
Tie a small bow and hot glue it to the tip to decorate it up.
In conclusion, This signed piece of art from your family and friends can adorn the wall in your new house. Cool, eh?
Another fun alternative for a sign in book is to have a hard cover book made from your engagement session and let the guests sign on any page in the book.
Cover your own album for pictures and for a guest book.
