Family Name Sign - Wedding Gift Idea

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I am posting a wedding gift I made back in April. Believe it or not, I give gifts that are not survival kits once in a while. For this wedding I decided to try my hand at making a family sign.

First of all I bought a pantry door from my local Re-Store. I sanded the center with fine sand paper, dusted it, taped it to protect the outside frame and painted a couple coats of black acrylic paint. 

I carbon copied the words using sewing transfer paper. I printed the words off my computer. I used the font "Bickham Script Pro" for "The Smith Family" (size 500), "Bodoni Ornaments" (the @ key ) size 200 for the embelishment , and "Georgia" for "Established 2012" size 96.

I am happy to report the couple was thrilled to get this unique gift!

Why don't you try it yourself?

Thanks for stopping by!
