A “perfect-o” Deflecto DIY wedding!

6/17/2016 | Lynn Lilly
Weddings are a joyous occasion! Here is another DIY project I have been busy working on for my daughter’s wedding this summer.

joy embroidered letters wedding table marker

I have completed the table marker project with this beautiful sign that will sit at the head table with the bride and groom.

  • Deflecto 12″x12″ acrylic sign holder 
  • To create this sign you will need the following:
  • Joy embroidered letters, spelling Mr. and Mrs. with the last name 
  • Cardstock – black/white stripe, plus solid black, teal, green 
  • Gold glitter cardstock 
  • Pearl beads, star embellishment 
  • Paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive 
  • Self-adhesive faux rhinestone trim 
  • Die-cutting machine with die-cut for scalloped ovals 
  • Paper flowers


To make hand-rolled paper flowers, cut cardstock into various sized circles 2″ – 4″ in diameter – they don’t have to be perfect. Cut each circle into a 3/8″ spiral. Leave a little circle in the middle. Roll the spiral into the form of a rose. Use a hot glue gun to secure the rolled spiral at the bottom. I use my fingers and thumbnail to distress the edges of the rose.

Cut out leaves by hand or with a die-cutting machine. If you cut out a heart from a folded sheet, then cut the heart in half along the fold, so you can easily shape each half into a leaf.
Cut the striped cardstock to fit the size of the acrylic sign holder, then trim black and teal sheets to fit behind the couple’s last name. Layer and adhere these background papers together and slide into the sign holder.

Die-cut a pair of scalloped ovals from cardstock (larger black and smaller gold glitter) for each letter. Glue to the outside of the sign holder, then center and adhere each letter on top as shown. Embellish your table marker with the flowers, leaves and rhinestone trim. Glue a pearl into the center of each flower.

Spell your name in Joy letters, available at your local craft store!
