Oh, I wish I had a "before" picture for this sign! (...sigh...) Anyway, my mother-in-law found this wooden cut out at The Dollar Tree. She gave it to me and said, "Here. We can do something with this!" Oh, she saw the possibilities! So... I knew I would paint it black, but then what? Then I remembered Carson's first year block.... yeah, baby!
This project was so simple! I drilled small holes where I wanted to place the wire picture holders. I don't think you can tell, but there are 3 coming from the back, and 2 on the top, coming out from the "A" and the "L". I curled the ends of the floral wire using needle nosed pliers. Instead of zig-zagging the wire like I did with Carson's block, I chose to use a simple curve. Then I used a dab of gorilla super glue to secure each wire.
For a special touch... we added too cute pictures from the bride and groom's childhood, with an engagement photo in the center. Aren't they adorable?!
