Jigsaw Project: Marriage signFebruary 4, 2013
I hope you are all doing really well. I am doing well and really excited Valentine’s day is quickly approaching. I can tell you it is one of my favorite holidays and I’m not really sure why. In my normal life I don’t love pink and red and hearts, but at Valentine’s I practically go overboard on it! I have a few crafts I made recently that are full of love and celebration so I thought they would be most appropriate for the blogs leading up to Valentine’s Day.
I was finally able to give the gift of my first jigsaw project away! It was simple, but something for me to practice on. My beautiful aunt re-married over the Christmas break to a wonderful man. As a wedding gift to them, I wanted to make a sign declaring the establishment of their new family bonded by marriage. I sketched out their name and wedding date after cutting and painting an old fence board. It was a pretty simple process. I wrote out the text in sharpie and then painted over to complete the look. Check out the finished product:
I didn’t get around to sealing it with any sort of sealer, but I would definitely suggest doing that. I also did not attach a bracket to the back because, since it is a small sign, I believe they can hang it or put it on a shelf to display it.
I have yet to make one of these for David and I, but I hope to make one soon. I made one for Melissa and her husband when they married and used their wedding colors. The options are endless really, just let your creativity flow!
