DIY Ring Bearer Pallet Signs for Weddings

Isn’t he adorable??? This is my handsome young nephew, who was the perfect ring bearer and model for my wedding, holding these adorable DIY Ring Bearer Pallet Signs. As you might have noticed, these are actual pics of him walking down the aisle during my ceremony. Having him carry these fun signs (rather than the traditional pillow with the rings), added a dash of super-cuteness, originality, and a bit of humor to my wedding ceremony. No one was able to keep a straight face as he walked by, and everyone will remember this part of the ceremony because of my cute little ring bearer holding these adorable signs!

Coming down the aisle, he wore this sign first.  😉 

 

After the ceremony, he carried this sign following the bride and groom procession out.  Adorable!

 

 

DIY Ring Bearer Pallet Signs for Weddings – Tutorial

 

Tools: 

  • Hand drill with bits
  • Spray can of clear protective enamel

Supplies:

  1. Acrylic paint (I used white)
  2. Paint sponge applicator
  3. Stencils (I used two sizes)  I bought mine at Walmart
  4. Mending brackets & screws (for fastening boards together)
  5. Old pallet wood (my pieces were 1 x 4s) you can also use new wood and then make it look old with my Easy DIY Wood Stain
  6. Rustic-looking ribbon (Make sure it’s wide as it disperses the weight of the sign better than a thin ribbon.  Also, make sure it isn’t itchy!  These little guys have to wear it around their neck!)  My ribbon was about 2 1/2 or 3 inches wide.

Instructions: 

Directions:

Cutting the wood:

For the sign, “Has Anyone seen the Rings,” I first cut 3 pieces of wood (1 x 4s) approx. 26 inches long.

For the “Ladies, I’m Still Single” sign, I cut 3 odd sized pieces of wood (1 x 4s) at approx. 19 or 20 inches in length.

Staining Wood:

If you have old, weathered wood, you may want to skip this part.  I never have enough old pieces to work with, so I make my new wood look old. Stain the wood using an old brush and the “Easy DIY Wood Stain” found HERE.
You may have to paint on more than one coat if you want it darker.

Adding the Hardware:

Screw the pallet wood pieces together with the mending plates.

Painting:

First, flip the wood to the front and place the stencils where you want your letters.  Carefully dab on the acrylic paint into each stencil.

After the paint is dry, spray a coat or two of clear protective enamel

Adding a Ribbon Halter:

With the hand drill, drill two holes at the top of the sign.

Next, thread the ends of the rustic-looking ribbon through the holes and make a knot at each end. 

 

You are now finished! It’s ready for that cute little ring bearer to show it off!

 

These ring bearer pallet signs certainly made our ceremony more memorable and fun.  I hope you will consider making them for your wedding. You will be glad you did!

    Your wedding was one of the nicest weddings I have been to in a long time. There were so many little things in it that were surprises; like the way Austin rode in on his spunky horse to the “Lone Ranger” music, and the way the Preacher (brother-in-law) presented his ad-lib, funny ceremony, and many other things that were different. The little ring bearer was so adorable. It was so much fun and the décor was awesome! You did such a great job on your wedding. K
