At Lettering Art Studio, we love to hear and see your success stories when you take the creative wheel behind your big event! We are pleased to offer you yet another DIY Wedding opportunity using our newest script font, Belluccia font, ornaments, fourishes and borders.
Today’s DIY project is a Welcome sign for your wedding or event. If you subscribe to my blog and post a comment about the project, I’ll send you a copy of the Welcome sign artwork to use for your own project!
Here’s the How to :
- Step 1.) I started with this wooden shape. I happened to have this one left over from another project. But you can create one yourself out of something as simple as cardboard or foam core. Just make sure it has a smooth surface. You can also buy pre-cut wooden shapes at a craft store, or look for wooden signs at places like Goodwill.
- Step 2.) Next I attached the Adhesive backed Chalkboard paper ( Michael’s) to the board and cut the shape out.
Step 3.) I created the artwork on the computer using my new Belluccia font, banner ( in the flourishes package) and birds from the ornament package. ( The birds aren’t shown in this pic. The font inside the banner is actually a new one I’m creating!) I actually changed the wording inside the banner to say “Our Wedding”.
I sized it to fit the board by enlarging it on my copier. I also made a small border by drawing around the outline of the shape using a Chalk Marker. ( Michael’s)
Both fanciful and classy, Belluccia was created with the DIY bride in mind as well as invitation designers. It has all the components just ready for you to create invitations and wedding signage with the beautiful look of calligraphy at a fraction of the cost.
