Roses are red. Violets are blue. Love is here and forever true. I’ll cherish your love and spoil you with all you deserve. Always be mines and I will forever be yours! Haha! I just made that up and it’s not bad at all.
Aww, can you feel that? Love is in the air! 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 you can grab from your local Dollar Tree. So let us 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. Then, I added a little orange to get this particular pink hue. Who loves mixing paint? It can be fun trying to find desired color, but when you run out. . .now you have to mix it again trying to achieve the exact same color.
Tip# Always make enough the first time around or get measuring utensils involved.
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, you want to remove the paper and outlined over the imprint with a sharpie oil based paint pen. I chose to use 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.
