After taking down our Christmas decor, the house
felt a little barren and although I love a clean and
uncluttered house, I also love holidays!
We are lacking in the Valentine decor
department, so when I spotted these cool
metal letters at Michael's...I put them back.
Really. I did. I put them back and walked away.
Mainly because there wasn't an "o"...and then
I walked past the Valentine row and spotted
the perfect "o", the red metal cookie cutter
heart. I quickly ran back and snatched up
my letters and then headed to Home Depot.
Happy girl, happy girl!!!
Picked up 3 fence panels since another project
is in my head, in the works.
Just a two foot section was cut for this craft.
It needed to stand up, so a piece of scrap wood,
an angled cut & some screws fixed that.
Already had the pink Americana Decor chalk
paint on hand, so I quickly got to work painting.
Of course a coffee break between the two coats.
Finished up the edges with a bit of white chalk paint.
I used the two pots of paint to balance the board on while
spacing the letters and hot gluing. If you wait a couple of
seconds, the glue is the perfect temperature to smear into
the cracks with your finger without losing layers of skin.
A quick cut with an exacto knife to remove any visible glue
that seeped out from the tops of the letters and voila!
