I like to incorporate a little Valentine’s vibe into my decor this time of year but I prefer to have decorative accents that can withstand longer time frame. Creating a “love” themed vignette works year round and this striped scrap wood sign is the perfect focal point.
Materials I used:
- scrap wood for canvas
- FrogTape® Multi-Surface
- vinyl decals
What I did:
Sand edges and clean scrap wood canvas.
Paint base color and let dry. I did two coats.
Use FrogTape to create stripes. I started with a center stripe and worked my way out. Just eyeball it. Use a small piece of FrogTape for spacing.
Burnish the edges of the FrogTape using a thumbnail or credit card.
Paint stripes. I did two coats.
While second coat of paint is still wet, remove FrogTape. Let paint dry.
I added DIY vinyl decals. Other options include a print/rub technique (print out wording, rub pencil on the back of the paper then place paper on wood sign and trace lettering) and paint or marker or stickers…get creative!
Now I have a “love” themed vignette perfect for Valentine’s day and a wood canvas sign that I can display all year round (cute for the nursery too)!
