Love True Love – Valentine Sign

Hi!  It’s me, Liz!  Here again to show you this fun sign I made for Valentine’s Day.  Love True Love.  Isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?  Well I thought this sign would be just perfect to go with any Valentine’s Day Decor.  It turned out super cute and was really easy to make.
Here is how I made this lovable sign:
I used a 1×8 piece of pine that was cut 14 inches tall.  I painted the board using red acrylic paint.  I used 2 coats so it was really covered.  After I let it dry, I used a vinyl stencil and placed that onto the board (my friend cut out my stencil for me).  Instead of using the vinyl as the lettering, I removed the letters so that I could paint in those areas.  After I made sure the stencil was really on there, I used white and pink acrylic paint to paint my letters and hearts inside the stencil.  Before they were completely dry, I removed the stencil so that it wouldn’t pull away any of the paint and I would have nice sharp lines.
After I let the paint dry I decided the hearts needed a little something more and found some silver metallic paint.  Using the end of a paint brush, I covered the hearts with silver polka dots.  If you like your decor a little more distressed looking, just use a piece of sand paper around the edges and in a few areas on the face of the sign.  Distress it until you get the look you want.
I set the sign up on my entry table to greet my guests.  It is so bright and festive!
I’m so excited for Valentine’s Day this year.  My kids are starting to understand and are wanting to make cards for their daddy, their friends and their family.  We are counting down the days until we can share our I love you’s with our loved ones.
Happy Crafting!
