This DIY Beachy Vibe Wedding Sign captures the relaxed feel of a beach wedding no matter how far inland you are. Celebrate in style by decorating your reception hall with a Mr. and Mrs. wedding sign to place near the bride and groom. The cool blue color of the paint conjures up visions of a crystal-clear ocean, and you'll have fun crafting these sea life shapes to attach after the painting's all been done. Make sure everyone knows who the newly-married couple is with this DIY wooden sign, whether you're having a beachfront ceremony or just channeling that tropical fun!

Instructions

  1. Make the 5 starfish and 2 sand-dollars by heating a Mod Melt stick in a mini high temp glue gun. Squeeze the hot melt into the mold and fill to the top. It will self level. Wait 7 min. and when cool pop out. Trim around the melt if you have any rough edges.

  2. Paint the starfish with Mandarin Satin. Use two coats if necessary. Once dry lightly paint the very top with a few taps of Royal Gold. This will add depth to the starfish.

  3. Paint the sand-dollars with Pearl White paint. Use two coats if necessary.

  4. Make random shaped faux beach glass by squeezing hot Mod Melts onto the craft mat in oval and beach glass shapes. Allow to cool. Paint each one a solid color using Aquamarine, Blue Topaz and ice Blue.

  5. Paint the wood plaque with Mod Podge Sheer Color. In the center, paint Mr. & Mrs. With Pure Black and a detail paintbrush. Allow to dry.

  6. Hot glue the faux beach glass, starfish and sand-dollars to the plaque. Hot glue a burlap ribbon to the back to create a hanger.

This is a great idea. It's easy and the visit is minimal. But I want it to fit in with the decor of the bride and grooms. I will add things that are more new englandish. I will let the wood remain unpainted and just apply polyurathane . It brings out the grain .
