Wedding Sigage

Wedding Sigage, originally uploaded by krakencrafts.

I had been collecting random pieces of scrap wood for making wedding directional signs for a while. I love the look of wood signs in all the beautiful wedding blog photos, but logistically it started to not make that much sense. Was I going to nail these signs to telephone poles in town? How was I going to cut the wood for these signs? The only saw we have is a hand saw.

Then I saw these really cute, non-wedding, directional signs on flickr and thought cardboard can be really attractive and is so much easier to cut into cute shapes than wood. So I made these direction signs and shuttle bus and shuttle bus stop signs for our rehearsal dinner. And I am pretty happy with how they turned out.

I did make this one wood sign for the front of our reception venue from salvaged wood and a salvaged door hinge.

Wedding Crafts Sneak Peek 2

Wedding Crafts Sneak Peek, originally uploaded by krakencrafts.

Some escort cards without the table numbers (we still need to figure out the seating chart). I gocco printed the boarders on papersource escort card paper. I don't trust my handwriting so I printed out the peoples names on the computer and transfered them to the cards with carbon paper and then traced over them with blue ink.

I feel like I have been spending almost all my free time working on wedding crafts, but I've been trying not to post too many pictures before the wedding. Here are a few semi completed projects.

Chalkboards I made from a thrift store mirror and picture frame. I painted the frames and spray painted the glass with green chalkboard paint. I think they will be drink and or food menus.
