DIY "Love Lives Here" Sign

Have Valentine's Day Eve!!

I wanted to pop in and share a quick & very easy sign that would be perfect for an easy Valentine's Day decor piece or would look great year round because this message is definitely one to remember throughout the year :) 

If you guys were around last year, you may remember my nontraditional wreath I created last year. You can check it out here

Between all the moving & redecorating, I've re-purposed a whole lot of my previous decor to have a different feel for the new house. 

The wreath did it's job last year but, to be honest, I was never super in love with it.
So I ended up dismantling it this year because I wanted to use the base piece of wood for a specific project.
More on that later.

But while taking it all apart, I really didn't want to lose the cute vinyl & chipboard saying that was on the front.
So I decided to simplify it down and keep the same sweet message. 

The funny thing is that I love it a million times more now! 

If you don't happen to just have this lying around already like I did, here's the rundown on the supplies you'll need: 

*Scrap piece of wood
*Chipboard 'love' (Found at Hobby Lobby) 
*Sparkly paper 
*White vinyl or stickers

It's incredibly easy to throw together. 

1. Stain/paint your wood background in your desired colors. I stained mine with my favorite dark walnut stain. 
2. Add your glitter paper to your chipboard word. Detailed pictures can be found here on how I did it. 
3. Attach your word with hot glue to your stained board. Add your vinyl lettering underneath. 

All in all, even if you didn't have all the pieces lying around ready to go, it's probably an easy 30 minute project! 

I love how neutral but yet beautiful it came out.
It's hanging above our pantry in the kitchen at the moment but I'm thinking it'll come down for tomorrow to add a little romantic twist on things. 

Hope your weekend is lovely!
The hubs has big plans for us today- we celebrating a day early :) 

Happy Valentine's day friends!
