This easy DIY Wedding Date Sign is perfect for a bridal shower gift or to take to the wedding as a gift. You could even give as an anniversary present or a Christmas present. All you need is a simple wooden board and a machine to cut out a stencil or your can make stencil from paper to lay on the board (which is what I did) and paint for the sign. I recommend chalk paint, but you can use whatever you want.
DIY Wedding Date Sign
Supplies: Wooden board, stencil, paint and tape
Start by placing stencil on the board and make sure it is where you want it.
Next tape the stencil down so it will not move on you while painting.
Dip your paintbrush in the paint and be sure to remember that a little goes a long way. Next start dabbing over stencil while using your other hand to hold the stencil down firmly. You do not want to brush strokes as this could cause paint to go underneath the stencil. You may have to do several layers of paint by dabbing the brush to get the achieved look you want.
Gently remove the stencil and let it air dry over night. If you want you can spray the board with a clear acrylic spray paint to lock in the paint and it will make the paint stand out, but you do not have to do this. On the picture of the board above it does not have the spray on it.
Be sure to wrap in tissue paper to protect the paint when wrapping for a gift.
