Hey, hey, hey!! Happy Monday!!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Our weekend was great! We just hung out a lot as a family, grilled steaks, tried new recipes, played at the park and on the golf course, and just enjoyed time together as a family. That’s what it’s all about, right?!?
I also made this super easy and super cute Valentines Day art! I don’t really get all crazy with my Valentines decorations. I hang a wreath and a flag on our porch and I put one or two things on the mantel. But definitely nothing extravagant. I love how this sign is so simple and subtle and that it doesn’t look too “Valentine-y”!
I love, love, love the look of pallets in the home. Pinterest is full of yummy ideas for using pallets in your home from restructuring them to be coffee tables, to beautiful art! My recent favorite is Jen’s Valentines Pallet Art! So pretty!
Although I love the look of pallet art, let’s face it…..I don’t have the time or patience to hunt down a pallet, clean it, sand it, paint it, blah…blah….blah! If you’re new here (hi! and welcome!! and thank you so, so, so much for following along!!), you’ll soon come to realize that I love projects that are 3 things: quick, easy, and cheap! Oh and it’s gotta be pretty! Ok, so 4 things!
So while browsing in Hobby Lobby one day, I found these pretty little packages of wood pieces. They were just wood strips and there were 4 in a package for $2. I bought 3 packages, came home, and got to work!
Here are the supplies:
- packages of wood strips from craft store
- white paint & foam brush
- wood glue
I was a little impatient and didn’t get a picture of the wood strips in the actual package, but you can at least see what the package looks like.
So I just laid out all my wood strips to get the size “pallet” that I wanted. I saved 2 of the wood strips for the back.
Then I just used the wood glue to glue all the horizontal strips to the 2 vertical strips. Can you see the “mini pallet” coming together?!
Once they were all glued on, I let it dry for about an hour while I did other things. I came back and got busy painting with some plain white acrylic paint.
It took a few coats to get the coverage I wanted.
I don’t have pictures of this step, but I created my saying in Silhouette Studio and cut it out with vinyl on my Silhouette. Nothing better than a little Jason Mraz lyrics for V-day!
I used transfer paper to transfer my vinyl onto the “mini pallet”. And here’s the end result:
I love how it looks on my console table and is just the perfect touch of Valentine’s!
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
