Right now we are heading into the “season of love”…otherwise known as Valentine’s time!
Well, let me just say this. I love love. I like love notes, love stories, happy endings and all things ooey gooey.
Something I don’t care for is to have my house look like a florist at Valentine’s… so that means that I just simply don’t deck out for V-day. For those of you who DO- I am not judging! Go all out! I just prefer neutral for the most part, and many things that I do will be geared to year round, evergreen decorations 😀
If you follow my Facebook page then you may recognize this project from a live video I did the other day, which I will share at the end of the blog post, for those that want to see!
Since this was done LIVE, I didn’t get step by step pictures, but trust me- it is EASY and very self explanatory!
The key to this project is simply taking items that you already have and making them work together to create a very unique piece of art for your home!
EVERY SINGLE item that I used for this project was items I already had around my house.
What I used:
2 drawer pulls (I had gotten these from Hobby Lobby forever ago. Not even sure why I bought them…)
wood slice that was cut from a tree by my husband years ago
twigs from my yard
a random knob that I got somewhere
letter V from Wal-mart that I had in my “stash”
Frame was from Hobby Lobby on clearance (mentioned earlier)
scrapbook paper is some I had on hand from forever ago. I THINK it originally came from Hobby Lobby too!
So, here was the process in written form:
Find items in your home that could be used as letters for your project. I did the word LOVE.
I had an old frame that I purchased on clearance at Hobby Lobby a few years ago because it was missing the glass. I didn’t care. I loved the frame.
The inside of the frame was 12×12, so it was the perfect size for 1 piece of scrapbook paper! I found a piece I had on hand that would be a good backdrop and modpodged it to the frame.
After gluing the paper down, I took my 2 drawer pulls and shaped them like an L and hot glued them on.
I then took my knob (my letter O) and hot glued it where I felt it looked best!
The V…self explanatory.
The E, I decided to have a “base” for my twigs and glued my wood slice down first and then shaped my little twigs like an E and glued them to the wood slice.
THE END. Super duper easy but OH SO CUTE!!!!!
What items do you have around your home?! The possibilites are ENDLESS, y’all!!!!
