Valentine’s Day Signs and Yarn Art

I found some cute painted wooden Valentine’s Day signs in the dollar bins at Target that I couldn’t pass up.  I thought that they would be cute to add a little embellishment to.  The more and more I looked at them I thought it would be pretty to add a second color to them and some more glitter.  Then, I thought I would add them to a board. Here is what I came up with!!

 

 

You will need:

  • Wooden cut outs
  • Paint
  • Glitter
  • Board or box
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Glue

I found an old box that the girls received a growth chart in and decided it was a great size to place the Love cut out on.  I then decided to use yarn to cover the box.  I thought it would be fun to add three colors.

After choosing the colors, I wrapped the yard around the box and tired the yarn as tight as I could…this is imperative to keep the yarn from not moving.  I added a little glue to keep it from coming loose.  I started a third of the way in on the box and worked my way out to the end of the box.  I was lucky that the box had a finish edge that I like so it could stop and add glue to secure the yarn and not worry about the edges.  If you have an unfinished box you might want to paint the edge of the box first! I then repeated wrapping all three yarns around the box. I added some glue to the yard along the edge of the box, so the yarn wouldn’t slip off.

The next thing I did was add some sparkle to the wooden signs.  Here is a picture of the signs post Glitter!

I painted the heart on each wooden sign. The LOVE sign I added pink paint that is about a shade darker than the original color and sprinkled some silver glitter over the paint before it dried. Then, I painted the BE MINE sign, I added red paint to the heart and added red glitter before the paint dried!

Once, the paint and glitter was dry, I added glue to the back of the Love sign and added it to the yarn cover box that I made earlier.
