Wedding Sign

Point out-of-towners and guests in the right direction with handcrafted signs. Weathered wood planks nailed together with one end cut to shape a point are effective and look natural in a beachy or rural setting. Make several of these affordable posts to mark the most important turns.


1” x 4” plank of wood
2” x 4” post
Paint and brush
Wood screws
Sand paper

Tip: Use stain to age new wood.
