Valentines Day is just around the corner and today I’ve got a simple and pretty idea for decorating your home for this sweet holiday. By combining these fun embellishments, letters, and a driftwood heart you’ve got a unique and fun DIY Valentine’s Day LOVE wall hanging that would look lovely in any home!
- 12 Inch Wood Letters
- Hanging Driftwood Heart
- Americana Chalk Paint – Innocence Pink
- Darice Wood Glue
- Foam Brushes
- Grosgrain Ribbons and Doily Lace Tape
- Jute Cord
- Various Scrapbook Papers
- Core’dinations Sanding Set or Sand Paper (optional)
When your paint is dry, you’ll cut out your scrapbook paper for the front of the letters. Do this by placing your letters face down on the backside of the paper, then use a pencil to trace around the letters. Use the pencil mark as a guide to cut out your traced letter.
Use a sponge brush and glue to adhere scrapbook paper to the front of the letters. It works best to apply the glue directly to the wood and cover it lightly but completely. Then you can position your paper onto the wood.
Be careful when laying it down, usually once it touches the wood you cannot move it so try to be as precise as you can. (*Tip-the wood glue I used is my favorite product to apply paper to wood because it doesn’t cause the paper to lift and bubble!) Once you have your paper glued onto the wood, set aside to dry.
When your letters for your DIY Valentine’s Day wall hanging are dry, you can add ribbons and jute for extra embellishment. (Optional- you can sand the edges of the scrapbook paper on the top of the letters for a more distressed look)
