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!
- Wood Plaques
- White Paint
- Blue Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Cricut Storybook Cartridge
- Hot Glue Gun
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.
Here it is!! My photo for my thank you cards!! I admit I wasn’t sure how they would look while we were taking the pictures but I absolutely love how these came out, thanks to True Colors in Jamaica!
Hope you enjoy this DIY and can use it too!!
