Celebrate every day leading up to your I DO’s with this darling, DIY Wedding Countdown Sign! Quickly and easily print out our designs using your favorite Canon Printer, frame and you’re done. There are two designs to choose from and both can easily be customized to fit your wedding theme or home decor… all you need is an 8.5″ x 11″ frame. Not engaged but have a friend who is, or maybe a bridal shower to attend? This would make a fabulous and inexpensive gift that they’ll cherish!
Two Designs To Choose From
I’m sharing two different design files, one that is classic and one that is bold. Choose the one you like the best, customize with your favorite colors and countdown all those special days until I DO.
Download, Print, Frame
Download your choice of design at the end of the post, there is a classic style and a bold style. Print onto your favorite Canon photo paper, for this project I used the gorgeous Semi-Gloss and made sure to set my TS9020 Printer to print borderless with the highest quality print. Using Canon paper and being able to set your Canon printer to that exact paper, creates the most excellent print quality. Add to your acrylic frame.
Print + Cut
Next, print the numbers onto your choice of either the photo paper or lightly colored cardstock. Then cut each one out using scissors or a paper trimmer. Most of you will want to print 2-3 pages of the numbers so that you can properly countdown all the possible days.
Using your trusty Crop-a-dile hole punch, stack all the numbers together and add a hole at the top.
Arrange The Numbers
In the empty space, arrange the numbers until you’re happy with the spacing.
Add Command Hooks
These small, clear Command Hooks are the perfect thing to hang your ever changing numbers on! I found it easiest to start with the middle number, place it onto the hook, peel off the sticker backing and then add it to the sign. Then it’s easier to figure out the spacing of the number to the right and left.
Let The Countdown Commence
Keep the spare numbers nearby, or maybe even add a few hooks to keep them hanging on the back of your sign and get excited to countdown the days until you say I DO!
Paint The Base
On the bold sign, I opted to paint the wooden base copper! You can paint yours to match your home decor or your wedding style. There’s lots of room to get creative with colors and customization on the project!
