I heart the day of love! I really do. I love the pink and red candy, the class valentines and the red pancakes I make for breakfast on February 14th.
The only thing that I don’t really love is the decor options that are available to purchase. Wa-waa 😦
I know that I am not the only one who feels this way, so I thought that I would come up with a simple piece of Valentine’s decor! You are excited..right? Wa-hoo!
Canvas-it’s ok if there is something already on the canvas (painting) because you will cover it up
White round paper doily
Red heart doily
I love a simple project and this one is no different. It even goes a little bit faster if your kids are in bed and you have a diet coke and some chocolate to keep you company.
(you are going to want to glitter your heart doily before you start and let it dry overnight.)
1-I covered my canvas (that was previously a craft FAIL) with cute polka dot paper. I then added a strip of old school lined paper. I used double stick tape to adhere it. Worked like a charm.
2- I then added the vinyl 14 that I cut out with my Cricut Mini. I used the Storybook Font.
3- I then adhered the white doily Some of the doily will fold over the edge of the canvas.That is what you want. I just glued it down on the sides.
4-Add your glittered, red heart, doily. Double stick tape to the rescue again.
5-I love a great junk bow-so that was one of final steps. Not sure what a junk bow is? Don’t worry, I did a whole post about it. You can read about it here.
6- I used a fine point pen to draw “I love you” & to outline the 14. This is totally optional. So, if you hate your handwriting, no worries.
Done and done! I finished this whole project while watching an episode of Nashville. So, it doesn’t take too long. I hope that you will try this project out. I think that you will really LOVE the results!
