a wedding present

Two weeks ago my step brother got married! I wanted to give them something personalized as part of their wedding gift so I decided to make them a family sign! I received one as a wedding present and it was one of my favorite gifts!

I started out at Michael's to get a wooden wall plaque. I then spray painted it with some black paint. Then I used this method to paint their last name and the year! Finally I distressed it with a palm sander to give it that aged look. Such a great, easy project!

I saw this tutorial on Dear Lilly about making crepe paper peonies so I just had to try to make them for the perfect wrapping!
