DIY Table Signs

I needed some inexpensive labels for my booth this past week.
I wanted something classy, affordable and something that I could reuse.
I called in my friend Jacque for major help.
She researched, made some prototypes, mailed them to me and voila!
 Here's the how to:
Buy frames, candle sticks (at Dollar Store) & wooden circles.
Remove the backing and glass from the frames.
I went with glossy white spray paint for under $4.
Laid them in a box and started painting.
 Warning: This is a stinky process so be sure to do it in a well ventilated area.
Oliver's face can attest to the stench.
 Spray a good coat on all sides and let dry for 20-30 minutes.
Be sure to do a thin coat to avoid getting drips.
Bring indoors to assemble.
I had a glue gun on hand but regular E6000 glue would work well too.
Glue the wooden disc on the base and then glue the frame on top.
I wanted my frames to go on horizontally.
 Let dry for 20 minutes.
Take back outside and give one final coat of paint.
Be sure to do the front
 and the back
 Let dry for 30 minutes.

 Then start assembling.
I opted not to put the glass in mine for this time but I saved it for later use.

 The finished product:
LOVE it!!
 They worked great for my show 
and I'm hoping to use them at my next shower/event for food labels!
