XOXO Valentine’s Day Sign

Happy Valentine’s Day! I enjoy celebrating this day because I’m a romantic at heart, and I LOVE love! I feel like this day is not just for lovers, but also a day to show your affection for friends and family.

For today’s blog post, I made a beautiful sign that is perfect to display for Valentine’s Day as well as the upcoming Spring and Summer months.

  • Then, use a foam brush to paint the top of the plaque with black chalk paint. Let the paint dry for a couple of hours.

  • Next, draw letters and shapes on a sheet of white cardstock. Cut the phrase out of the paper with a craft knife or a pair of scissors.

How pretty is this sign? I really want to keep it for myself, but I think that I will give it to a friend as a gift. Most of the people I know love to receive handmade gifts.
