I love to decorate for Valentine’s Day, now that Christmas is over, I have many Valentine projects that I would like to make to add to my collection of decor.
We we have lots of wonderful stencils, stamps, and signboards, that make creating themed projects quick and easy. The DecoArt Vintage Effect Wash paint is great for getting that soft Shabby Chic kind of feel.
Here is what you will need:
Square Grooved Board #63002
Cling Vintage Letter Stamp #70911
FolkArt Stencil Value Pack Prases #71932
Vintage Effect Wash – Berry #14488
Vintage Effect Wash – Pink #14487
Vintage Effect Wash – White #14485
I started with basecoating my board in Pink. You can do this in one or two coats, depends on the look that you are going for. Once dry, I used the letter stamp and White to add detail to the background. Just sponge the paint onto the stamp and then just apply the stamp at a variety of angles to fill the background, if some didn’t work too well, don’t worry about it, that is the beauty of this project.
Once the background is dry, lay your Love, Love, Love stencil from you stencil pack in the placement that you are happy with. Here you can either just stencil the letters on with Berry and your favorite stencil brush of sponge, or you can trace the letters on and then will them in to work on your hand lettering. When the letters were all on and dry, I chose to outline them with a liner brush and White. Then finish with your favorite varnish.
It’s that simple! Now you have a sign to enjoy for Valentine’s Day or everyday!
