DIY Valentine Decor Amore

DIY Valentine Decor AMORE

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!

That's Amore!
