Wedding Photo Shoot Thank You Signs

Good Morning! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today, I’m sharing the thank you signs that I made for my wedding thank you cards! I saw several different ways to do this on Pinterest and intended on using rectangle shaped plaques until I found these scalloped ones at Michaels!

I started by painting the wooden plaques white on both sides with some paint that I had left over from repainting a desk.

Then I used my Cricut to cut out the words exactly as I wanted them and placed them where I wanted. I made sure to place the starfish on the plaque before I traced so that everything would fit the way I wanted.

Then I used a pencil to trace the letters onto the plaque and again put the starfish down just to see how it was coming along.

Then I painted within each outline using a small paintbrush and my new favorite blue color.

After I finished painting I got the idea to outline the words with a sharpie and I love how much better it turned out. I made sure not to glue the starfish on until we got to Jamaica so that they wouldn’t break en route in my luggage. I packed a hot glue gun to attach all of the fragile things after arrival.
