Once you have chosen a wedding theme everything else falls into place. Especially the decor for your big day. Window shopping and Pinterest are your best friend as it gives you a ton of ideas. Take those ideas you see and incorporate them. This is where the fun part begins.
I was at Target a couple of months ago and came upon a chalkboard easel in the target spot. It was plain and I knew how I wanted to decorate it and use it for the guest table. I used the following supplies:
1. Silver spray paint
2. Black spray paint
3. Small paintbrush
4. Mod Podge
5. Silver glitter
6. Chalkboard black paint
7. Newspaper and/or cardboard
I placed newspaper on it and spread it around to cover the board with tape and my floors. Next, I placed it on a cardboard and surrounded it with newspaper. The cardboard helped me by turning it around. I spray painted the legs and top silver and let it dry overnight.
The next day, I took a small paint brush and brushed on mod podge on the front wooden easel and top. I then sprinkled silver glitter on it and let it dry.
Once I peeled the newspaper off, I noticed the front chalkboard needed a touch-up. I took a sponge brush and lightly brushed on black chalkboard paint to it.
Now I have a chalkboard easel for my welcome table that will say guest sign in and the other for my favors table.
I next was shopping at the Dollar Tree and saw a welcome sign. I knew how I could redo it in my color theme. I took off the red ribbon.
Next, I placed it on a cardboard and spray painted them black. I let it dry overnight.
The next day I used a small paintbrush and mod podge. I brushed over the letters with the mod podge to adhere the silver glitter.
Once the hearts were dry I got my ribbon and cut it in 2.5 inches each and glued them to the back. I wanted them spaced out horizontally. Once it was dry I flipped them face forward. I love how it turned out.
I will be placing this welcome sign on my guest table. I will be sharing photos on social media so you can see how it all turned out.
