I made a lot of eclectic wedding signs and props for my son’s wedding and reception. Some pieces were vintage items I bought at Estate Sales, using estatesales.net of course, and some were repurposed into something totally different. I wanted to show you a few ideas you could use at a wedding, engagement party, birthday party, etc. Of course you may have to change the wording on your own signs but… this may give you a few fun ideas – So go ahead, get creative!
The sunset wedding was held on the country club patio. My vintage chair held the WEDDING sign at the start of the winding walkway.
I bought an awesome vintage suitcase at an Estate Sale along with some old linens! This was a perfect place to hold all the programs and ceremony bubbles.
Here are a few of the walkway signs I made for guests to see as they made their way to the patio.
“Friends of the bride, friends of the groom… Please sit together – there’s plenty of room”. So, I got the frame at a thrift store and the heart clips at Michael’s. I hung that with twine onto a vintage standing lamp base that I bought at an Estate Sale. I topped it off with a vintage glass door knob up top where the light bulb would normally go! Talk about repurposing!!!
I made all the table numbers using pallet wood and coffee burlap bags. I also made the Farmhouse Window Couple’s Photo Frame. The guests signed the window border like a guest book. The card holder for the wedding cards I made from an old mailbox I found on my road, and, I also made the wedding coffee favors!
Geez, until I wrote this all down, I hadn’t realized all the DIY projects I had done! It was so much fun making everything.
These DIY’s I’ve shown you were all fairly easy. Some took a lot of time but, I LOVED every minute of it. After all was said and done, I came home and so wanted to do it all over again. That’s when I decided to keep making wedding and home decor signs and stuff. I figured I would give ETSY a try and sell my items there. Well, 3 years later… I’ve sold almost 600 items on ETSY! I LOVE doing what I LOVE to do!
