Roses are red. Violets are blue. Love is here and forever true.
Aww love…love is in the air, is it not? Today, I’m going to share one of my top 5 Valentine’s diy crafts that was crafted over the weekend. The other crafts will be shared over the next few days. Each one is inexpensive, simple, and easy to do. Majority of the materials are found at Dollar Tree. So let’s get started!
The love sign
Materials & Tools:
- Twine (if desired)
- 1 wood board (this board came from Home Depot …it was leftover from a previous project)
- Paint tray
- Paint (color of your choice)
Since I didn’t have a pink that I preferred I mixed white chalk paint with a magenta pink and added a little orange to get the lighter pink hue I applied to the sign.
While allowing the board to dry completely, I sketched out the lettering “L-O-V-E” onto 4 sheets of paper.
After the board dried, I then laid each sheet onto the board and lightly traced over the letters one at a time with a pencil, so it will show the imprint on the board.
Next, remove the paper and outlined over the imprint with a sharpie oil based paint pen in gold, and then filled in the letter. Repeat for the remaining letters.
For the finishing touch, I wrapped twine around and tie it into a bow. If you would like to be more creative add lights, ribbons, and/or floral to add more beauty.
