Making DIY wood signs has become my thing! I love the way they look, along with how easy it is to customize them. My most recent project is this Valentine’s Day sign that reads “All you need is Love”. I decided to create the Valentine’s Day sign my for daughters. At my house we love celebrating Valentines day as a family since it’s a great way to share how much we love each other. Every year we exchange our favorite card from American Greetings cards along with something little. This year, my daughter’s will get this new DIY sign.
The sign was really easy to make. Here’s a quick breakdown on how to make the DIY Valentine’s Day sign for yourself!
- Wood, I used scrap wood since I have so much. My pieces were 3/8″ thick and (2) 11 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ pieces and (1) 11 1/2 x 2 1/2″ piece.
- Back Support Wood: (2) 1″ thick 2″ x 8″
- Hammer & nails or Nail gun & Compressor
- Sander or Sanding block
- Wood Stain
- Custom “All you need is Love” vinyl art, I made mine with my Cricut
- Wood hearts
Step 1: Cut, sand, and stain the wood.
Step 2: Arrange the finished pieces of wood.
Step 3: Add the back support pieces with either a hammer & nails, or a nail gun. This is how the sign will stay together.
Step 4: Add part of your vinyl letters, in my case “LOVE”.
Step 5: Add the rest of the vinyl letters.
Step 6: Add an extra embellishment. I used these small wood hearts.
Step 7: Paint and add glitter to the hearts.
Step 8: Add the finished hearts with glue and wrap some twine around the top for the finishing touch.
Here’s my sign all complete and ready to be displayed. As you can see it eventually will be displayed on my mantle with the rest of my Valentine’s Day Decor. But before it permanently makes it home here, I need to wrap it up for my daughters.
I love gift wrapping presents, especially for my daughters! My youngest is only 7 months so she obviously doesn’t care yet, but my 3 year old love’s opening gifts. So making this present extra special for her is a must!
To start the wrapping I found the perfect Valentine’s card from American Greetings cards along with some cute stickers and gift bags.
I added the heart stickers to the cards to give it that extra pizzazz! Both my girls will get a card, but I was so excited to find a 1st Valentines Day card for my youngest! I love celebrating first’s!
I also couldn’t help but get a little special something for my husband (hint, hint it’s in the red bag!), along with a Valentine’s card as well. You’ll notice I labeled his card with “husband”. For some reason when we finally got married, 6 years ago, we were pretty excited to call one another husband and wife. I think this was extra special for us since we dated for 9 years before we tied the knot! Since then, we’ve kept with the tradition of calling each other “husband” and “wife”!
To finish wrapping the wood sign I used some Kraft paper. Then I decorated with some wrapped twine and of course more American Greetings cards heart stickers. My 3 year old is obsessed with stickers, so she’ll love the package.
I’m so excited for them to open the sign and their special cards this Valentine’s Day! More importantly, I’m excited to just spend the day with them letting them know how much I love them.
Don’t forget Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday this year. If you need a reminder, you can download and print this cute February 2017 calendar from American Greetings blog. They also have a bunch of cute printables; including a shopping list with tear-off “loves notes”, a 8×10 Valentine’s Day frame-worthy quote, and even a mobile or desktop wallpaper (to keep Valentine’s Day top-of-mind)! Find all of them here on American Greetings blog.
So I hope you make this Valentines day special for someone you love. When it comes time to writing that meaningful message, you might want to check out this list of What to write in a Valentines Day card. Happy Valentine’s Day!
