DIY: Easy Chalkboard Sign

May 20 2014

What’s a great party without a great sign?

Well, one where you can’t find the biscuits bar, for sure!

Here’s the tips on how to pull off a DIY chalkboard sign like from this sweet southern affair that was published on the Pottery Barn Wedding Blog Have & Hold

Gather a few supplies.

Then do a little fancy pen work like Ashley Usry, shown lettering above.

Note: Ash is a genius with a hand drawn alphabet that’s nothing short of heart melting (not to say that I’ve ever ut-hum, saved important things just for her to write).

And, viola. Everybody will be buttering their biscuits in no time.

If you ask me, the best way to keep your guests informed is with adorable signs that add to the aesthetic of the affair. Like the hosting couple, the details of this gathering were a true reflection of “them,” from the flower halo right down to the pretty hand-writing on the wall that’s a cinch to make.

Thanks to Haley Sheffield Photography, you can see the highlights from the sweet barn affair right here. And, if you want to know a little more about my best friend’s wedding it told every little secret a few weeks ago.

You wanna make this pretty little project, pleeease do. They whole DIY for this easy chalkboard sign is on Camp Makery. It’s so easy. You can do it! 🙂
