Easy Chalkboard Lettering Tutorial #2

Eat, drink, and be married! Chelsea, from Ryan+Chelsea’s Wedding Series, first showed us how to design a large photo booth chalkboard sign in our last tutorial, Easy Chalkboard Lettering Tutorial #1. Now, she uses a slightly different method to fashion smaller chalkboard signs to display next to food and drinks on her wedding reception buffet table.

Chalkboard signs have become the new classic in weddings, easy to decorate and inexpensive to buy. Chelsea adds a personal touch to her drinking station signs, from the lettering to the ribbon, for a beautiful shabby chic accent. In her video, she demonstrates how to make these customizable signs, so you can add your own style to any event!

Quickly and easily stencil any design onto your chalkboard with our simple tutorial. These quaint chalkboard stands are perfect for labels and signs that can be redecorated and reused.
