DIY Wedding Cake Table Letters

In honor of our anniversary month, I thought I’d start to share some of my DIY wedding projects from our wedding last year. I loved looking at other people’s wedding projects so I hope my posts this month helps to put some ideas out there!

For our cake table decorations I knew I wanted to make some cake table letters (I don’t think this is common terminology. I spent far too much time on TheKnot.)

I picked up some wooden letters from Michael’s Craft Store for about 50 cents per letter. I also bought a few tubes of paint for 99 cents each.

I put on a few episodes of Smallville (I think the only way I got through all my wedding DIY was watching Smallville seasons 1-6!) and started painting away.

I let them dry for about 15 minutes and then flipped them over and painted the other side.

And boom! Done!

Then on the day of the wedding they were put on the cake table in a semi-circle.

And now they are in my kitchen. : ) And before that they were in my guest room!

$10 dollars later and my cake table was done!

The photo above is our cake and it was Funfetti. YUM! What is your favorite kind of wedding cake?

    I love them! I remember thinking they were fantastic, and I’m glad they’ve continued to move with you and be displayed. So fun. As for cakes? I love red velvet – but usually I prefer pie. 😉

    I love, love this idea! I was just looking at yet another possible wedding venue tonight and was kind of beat down, but this type of idea gets me excited again! Thanks for sharing.
