Another DIY Project

Before I share my DIY project, I have to say THANK YOU to Dana from Jumping the Broom. She gave me this award:

She wrote the sweetest things about me, and called me "spunky," which I love! Thank you, Dana!!! Again, I am so horrible at passing these on, but I would like to give one to everyone on my blog list, because you all keep me so entertained and inspired on a daily basis!

On to my DIY project...

Lately, I have been seeing a trend in spicing up the reception chairs that the bride and groom sit in. I really like this trend, because it is very simple, and a nice personal touch. I decided that I wanted some simple little signs for the chairs that Ryan and I will sit in at our reception. Here's what I came up with:

The green paint on the sign actually matches the ribbon a lot better than the camera portrays. We are using this ribbon around our bouquets as well around our centerpiece vases, so I think it will tie in nicely. The sign and letters are all wood, so they should hold up well. This project took about an hour, and cost me about $8. I really love how they turned out. What do you think?
