How to make a “LOVE” Valentine’s Day Decor

Hello my lovely readers! 2017 is slowly but surely rolling by. Can you believe it is February already and Valentine’s day is right around the corner? Do you know what that means? It’s time for a Valentine’s day DIY project. Think L-O-V-E.

Yep. This simple Valentine’s Day LOVE sign is made with wooden letters, paint, glue and a piece of wood. Only 4 items!

I used a piece of wood about 1 inch thick and about 12 inches in length as the base of the sign. On the right is the stained piece I used.

This is a draft of the final product.

 

Next, I painted the wooden letters. These were purchased at Walmart at $1.47 each. I know red/pink is the traditional color of Valentine’s Day, but I chose satin gray to keep it versatile and neutral.  I used several coats of paint on all side of the letters except for the bottom to leave a rough surface for better glue (E6000) adhesion to the base.

Now the finished product. I am so excited about the turnout. Lovely! I want to make another one. Possibly HELLO!

 

 

 

 

 

Love is in the air on my staircase ledge.

 

So what do you guys think? I am very excited to share this DIY project and I look forward to hearing from you all 🙂
