Wash the plates and trays before you start designing. Before using a gloss paint marker, you need to activate it as described here. Using the fine-nibbed edding 751 in black, start by sketching out the wording for your sign. Now take the edding 750 with the broader nib and reinforce the individual strokes to give a calligraphic effect.
To make the wooden sign, use the white edding 4000 matt paint marker which is ideal for all porous surfaces. This marker also needs to be activated, exactly as described in step 2. And don’t forget you need to make the signs point the right way! When you’ve finished, attach your DIY wedding signs to the wooden post, using nails for the wooden boards and the hot glue gun for the metal trays.
