This has to be one of the most simple DIYs I’ve shared but sometimes those are the best! I needed a wedding welcome sign but didn’t want to spend $50 on an easel stand so I made this hanging sign wedding using PVC pipe! This sign holder is good to keep at home post-wedding to use for parties we host as well. All I will need to do is replace the foam poster board with a new one!
I’ve placed below all of the materials needed:
- 2 8-ft long PVC pipes (I used 3/4 inch)
- 2 90’s (3/4 inch to 3/4 inch)
- 2 T’s (3/4 inch to 3/4 inch)
- Jute string (here’s the one I used)
- Spray paint (I used my favorite gold spray paint)
- 20×30 poster foam print from Walgreens
- PVC cutter (this one on Amazon works well for $12!)
- hole punch
- tarp/old blanket for painting
For the sign itself, I started by purchasing a foam poster board and using a paint pen to draw it myself. But my perfectionism took over and I decided to design a graphic on Canva.com and then have the poster printed at Walgreens. I ordered a 20×30 “board print” for $18 (it was originally $35 but used a 50% off coupon). I punched two holes in the top and tied some jute string through the holes loosely.
For the PVC sign, I cut the PVC’s into the following sections: 2 four-foot sections, 1 three-foot section, 4 1-foot sections. You will have a 1-foot leftover that you can save for a future project. Start by putting the elbows on either side of the 3-foot section then add on the 4-foot sections to the other side of the elbows. At the other side of the 4-foot sections, add the T’s then place a 1-foot section off each end.
At this point, I sprayed my sign holder with gold spray paint. I did 3 or 4 coats letting it dry in between coats.
