DIY ‘Just Hitched’ Pallet Wood Wedding Banner
Don’t you just love this “Just Hitched” wedding banner? This rustic little banner came out so perfect for my wedding! I could have literally placed it anywhere at the reception, but ended up finding the perfect home for it on the back of our horse-drawn buggy. It looked adorable as we drove off.
This banner would have also looked great behind or strung in front of the reception table, the wedding book sign-in table, at the entrance or exit gate, the cake table, or any number of places, I’m sure! This wooden sign threaded on twine, would be the perfect touch anywhere at a wedding that needs a little hint of extra rustic charm.
The best part was that it was quick to make. Believe it or not, I actually whipped it all together the day before my wedding!
DIY Just Hitched Pallet Wood Wedding Banner Tutorial
Tools & Supplies:
- Hand drill with bits
- Acrylic paint (I used white)
- Stencil sponge applicator
- Jute string
- Old 1 x 4 pallet boards cut into squares (cut as many pieces as letters in your sign) You can also use new wood and make it look old with my Easy DIY Wood Stain.
Line your stencil letter onto each piece of wood, then carefully dab on your acrylic paint with the sponge applicator. (Make sure to dab off any excess paint on a paper plate before applying the paint to the wood to avoid any paint bleeding underneath the stencil)
Also, drill two holes for the string to go through
Spray on 1-2 layers of clear enamel to protect the acrylic paint
Thread the jute string through the holes
A toothpick comes in pretty handy to help poke the string through the holes.
Finished! Time to find a place to hang it!
I hope you love this adorable wedding banner as much as I do! It was the perfect addition and the perfect ending for my wedding ceremony!
