It’s about time for another DIY around here, isn’t it? Today we’re bringing a surprisingly simple DIY to class up your wedding signage. Meet our little friends, these DIY gilded acrylic signs! I wish I could get a show of hands- who loves gold foil. I know it would be most of us, and even you who didn’t raise your hands… you still like it deep down, I know. One of our favourite DIY supplies is liquid gold foil. It’s essentially paint, but with the same gilding properties as gold foil. Pretty awesome, right? Skip the glue and mess of real gold foil and go with this if you’re in a hurry, or just not up for a pain in your butt, okay?
We love a good glass sign, but acrylic has such a simple, modern appeal that can match pretty much any decor… ever. And the best part about these little signs? They’re actually dollar store photo frames, just without the photo inside! If you’re running a tally in your head, these things are more affordable than chalkboards… but have all the glitz and class of a glass frame. Ready to hear the how-to?
To make these signs, you’ll need:
- Acrylic slide-in photo frames
- Liquid Gold Leaf
- Thin round paint brush
- Template printed or sketched out
To get started, sketch out the design that you want to letter on scrap paper. Alternatively, you could print off the wording with a pretty font. Some free ones we love include Janda Stylish Script, Sunshine in my Soul and Movus BrushPen. Slide those templates into your frames to use for tracing. Give your liquid gold a good shake before opening and get to painting!
Surprisingly simple… right!? So tell us… what would you use these signs for? Don’t you think they’d make rockin’ table numbers? We say use them for everything… because why not 😉
