Reserve a place of honor for the bride and groom at the reception by marking their chairs with these fun rustic burlap signs. These DIY wedding chair signs can come together in just minutes with just a few supplies.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY wedding chair signs:
- Burlap (either pre-cut burlap flags or any burlap fabric)
- White paint
- Paint brush
- Twine or string
- Hot glue gun and glue
You can find a variety of burlap items at your local Old Time Pottery. There are flag shapes that are pre-cut and already stitched available. However, if you can’t find the flags you can easily make them from any burlap fabric. Pick up anything made of burlap from Old Time Pottery and cut into flag shapes. Then just stitch two of those triangles together using a sewing machine. You want the frayed look to the edges for that rustic look so stitch about 1/4 inch in from the edge as shown below.
Then just stencil on your letters. Protect your work surface as the paint will bleed through the burlap. Then lay on letters to spell “MR” and “MRS” onto the flags. Use a white paint and paint brush to paint the letters onto the flags. Remove the stencil and allow to dry.
I ended up going over my letters with the paint twice as once was just not bright enough. Add a second coat of paint after your first is dry then allow to dry completely once again.
Add the flags to a piece of twine or string by using a hot glue gun and hot glue.
Your DIY wedding chair signs are ready for the ceremony. Just tie onto the chairs that you intend for the bride and groom to use during the reception. This reserves their seats but in a really cute and rustic way! We love this fun wedding DIY project and how easy it is to complete for your wedding!
