Run to Target! This Dollar Bin Wooden Heart Sign was inspired by these adorable wooden hearts I found for $3 each in the dollar(ish) bins there. If you go to the same Target I do, sorry, I might have bought them all up.
For one day holidays like Valentine’s, I’m a fan of décor that’s understated. This wood sign hints at Valentine’s Day but doesn’t scream it. 🙂
- Wood Heart Sign
- Paint Brush and Spouncer
- Colored Cardstock
- Repositionable Spray Adhesive
- Scrapbook paper (for stencil)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Gold Sharpie®
- Silhouette CAMEO
- Silhouette Light Hold Mat (optional but so nice when working with paper)
- Designs: Antlers and a few Spiral 3D Flowers (see below for a few of the ones I have)
This is how the signs looked raw:
I started by painting my sign with two colors, using some card stock to easily keep one color from running into the next.
While that dried, I cut out my antlers on scrapbook paper with my CAMEO. Once the paint on the sign was dry, I sprayed the Easy-Tack to the back of my stencil and allowed 60 seconds to dry. Then I just applied it to the wood heart, press down to ensure a good seal on the edges.
I used a metallic “vintage gold” paint and a spouncer to paint my antlers. I always carefully peel off the stencil while the paint is still damp.
Then I cut a few spiral flowers (all about 2-3″ in diameter as shown in the top right image below). I just hot glue them as I curl them into a flower shape. After I made 5 of them, I attached them all to the sign with hot glue.
Finally, I just wrote the word “love” in cursive with a Gold Sharpie®.
