The Hubs and I just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary (yay us!), and I wanted to make something meaningful for our room. I’ve seen eleventy billion vinyl lettering signs but 1.) I wanted something a little different and 2.) I don’t have a vinyl letter machine/craft cutter thingy. So I came up with my own way to make a cute sign for us, for Free – using things around my house.
As I was deciding what our sign should say, I remembered seeing others that had “Established in ….(wedding year).” We married in 1999, and, to be a little different, I decided to use the Roman Numerals for that year for our vinyl lettering fake-out. This website is where I plugged in 1999, and it spit out MCMXCIX.
*FYI* I have repeating letters in my Roman Numerals, and I made more than one stencil of the same letter. The Press’n Seal is only good for one take with the spray paint. Trying to reuse it would have been a nightmare, and I wouldn’t have come out on the winning side.
