Now that the Christmas decor is down, it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day and in the blogging world, I’m already late. I had the itch to do something creative and scrap pile of wood in our garage was calling my name. I knew it was time for a little DIY pallet wood art.
I had a couple of pallets waiting for me to find my creativity again, and they were perfect for this project. This project is a perfect nap time project!
- scrap wood
- X and O purchsed from Hobby Lobby. The O is actually a thin piece of wood with a 10″ diameter
- Spray paint. I used Rustoleum Candy Pink, Rustoleum Heirloom White, and Krylon Glitter Blast in Red
- Hot glue gun and glue
1. I took my Hobby Lobby letters and gave them a couple of coats of spray paint.
I wanted to make sure I covered the X really well with 2 or 3 coats of the pink spray paint. With the O, I just wanted to make sure the wood was coated with the white where I knew my phrase would be. So, basically in the middle.
2. Once my letters were sprayed, I moved to my silhouette to cut my You Are Loved phrase. I turned the phrase sideways in program so that I could make it 9 inches wide. Cutting was the easy part. The part that made me nervous was applying the vinyl to the wood, but I got it on pretty quickly.
3. I sprayed the glitter spray over the entire piece of wood and let it dry.
4. While I was waiting for the paint to dry, I put the pallet pieces together. What you can’t see on the piece is what’s holding those pallet pieces of wood together. All I did was place two small pieces of wood vertically across the pallet pieces and then screwed that piece into each one of the horizontal pieces. It sounds complicated, but with a good drill, it can be done so quickly.
5. Once the paint was dry, I peeled the vinyl off of the circle and then secured both letters on to the pallet wood with my hot glue gun.
Easy peasy and I love the way it looks!
I still haven’t decided if I’m going to move it inside to our mantel or leave it outside on my crib bench I love so much.
This is just the beginning of the little Valentine’s Day touches I’ll be adding to our home. I’m not one to go all out for this holiday, but now that my little ones are starting to get a little older, I want to add a little fun to each one of the holidays they celebrate.
If you like this little project of mine and want to save it for later, feel free to give it a little pin or even repin it from my Valentine’s Day board.
