Most of my friends think I have a lot of holiday decor, well until they see my lack of Valentine’s Day decor around the house. I was feeling creative and inspired to make something inexpensive yet whimsical for the house. We had some bead board in the garage so the rest came easy. See how you can make this super easy DIY Valentines Day sign in just a few hours.
I purchased these thin MDF letters from AC Moore. Wish they were on sale but they were 3.99 each. They do carry smaller ones but these were thicker and I wanted a large sign for the mantel. My son helped paint the letters.
I originally painted a piece of bead board white, but then decided to change the colors. The cat decided to help paint too. Can you see her foot prints?
Once everything is dry, I used wood glue and attached the letters to the painted board. Could not be easier, I told you.
Now for the look. I decided first to see what I had to create a Valentine’s Day themed mantel and took down any pictures etc, that are up most of the year.
I took out the dollar store banner I made several years ago. Not sure why I never put it here before. To find out how to make this inexpensive valentines day banner check out this post.
I used the dollar store candle holders I made as well and filled them with conversation hearts and battery operated candles.
I like the look but it still feels a little empty.
Ok moved things around and now it is subtle but says yes we recognize Valentines day around here. It is a holiday about those we love so why not keep out the pictures of those we love.
Which mantel do you like better? What do you think of the DIY Valentine’s Day decor?
