Miss Dior Perfume
Hello, loves. Today I bring you a really easy and cute DIY. You can put these up for Valentine's Day or up all year around if the colors match your decor. Also, you could give these as gifts to your Galentines. Below I've detailed how you can make these adorable signs. I normally like more color, but I have this huge black and white print in my hallway and thought these colors would go best with it. You can use whatever colors you like the most or goes with your decor. So keep on reading if you would like to make these!
- Wooden Plaques (size to your liking, I used 5x7in)
- Paint Brushes : Sponge brush, 1/4 flat brush for painting in letters and arrows on LOVE sign and #4 round for "Hugs" Sign
- Acrylic paint in black, gold, white, and pink (I didn't have pink so I used red and white to make pink)
- A Stapler (for stapling the twine to the wood)
- Small container for water to clean your brushes between changing pint colors
- Using your sponge brush, paint your wooden plaques with the white paint then allow them to dry for about 10 minutes. After dry, add a second coat so the plaques can be opaque. Let dry for another 15 to 20 minutes.
- Take your gold paint and a flat brush to paint around the edges. Let that dry for 10 min and repeat for a second coat. If you get gold paint on the outside of the edges just touch up with the white paint.
- Outline what you want to say on your sign with a pencil. I wanted the word LOVE with crossing arrows! Once you have it outlined, go back in with the flat brush and paint your drawing. You can use a ruler if you want the arrows and letters to be precise, but I love the handmade look of these. It's very Shabby Chic. Allow this to dry for 20 to 30 min.
- Repeat the process for the second sign. Although, instead of gold along the trim use black, and use your #4 round brush to trace paint around the letters. If you would like to reduce your time doing these projects, I would say to alternate painting between the signs. Next attach a looped piece of twine to the back of the plaque using an office stapler. *If your plaques are thicker you can use a staple gun. Also, if you don't want twine you can use ribbon.
Now it's time to hang and admire your art. You could also give these to your best Gal pals! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you feel inspired!
