If you’re having an outdoor wedding this season, these shabby chic Mr and Mrs chair signs would be a beautiful addition. They are easy to make and you could swap out the lace, burlap and fabric for ribbons or glitter streamers depending on your theme.
Here’s how to make them…
- Wooden letters
- Burlap, lace, fabric offcuts in your theme colours
- Baker’s twine
- Gold spray paint
Step 1: Tie a small piece of wire around each letter.
Step 2: Spray paint your letters. Remember a couple of light coats is better than one heavy coat.
Step 3: Measure your chairs across the top and cut two lengths of string to tie on each chair.
Step 4: Cut little slits in each piece of your fabric and then rip along the line to create your ribbons. Make a mixture of burlap, lace and fabric. Don’t worry too much about the threads as that’s what makes them shabby chic!
Step 5: Now tie them onto your string, attach your Mr and Mrs letters and attach your signs to your chair.
These would look beautiful for an outdoor summer wedding or an indoor barn wedding too.
