DIY Wedding Gift- Custom Plaque

Howdy y’all!

A couple of months ago, we went to a gorgeous wedding for a second cousin & I wanted to make them something special. They are both Aggie alum & I thought that would be a fun twist to add to a traditional family sign. So I created this pretty piece for their home! 

The best part is, it can be customized to match the couple’s personality/home decor/fave sports team/etc.
