Use Mod Podge and glitter to make this sparkly Valentine's Day sign – an XOXO sign that will look great displayed on a table or mantel! This is REALLY easy to make.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I wanted to get started on a Valentines craft for the house. One of my go to crafts for the holidays are my easy DIY signs.
I haven't made a Valentine's Day sign yet and I thought this was the perfect opportunity. Plus I get to incorporate my “trusty” Mod Podge.
I did a similar sign like this for Christmas and knew I wanted to make one for Valentines when the time came. I've been trying to figure out what I wanted the sign to say.
Did I want to go “Coastal” Valentine's or stick with the classic Valentine theme?
Finally I decided on classic, and what's more classic then the XOXO theme.
DIY Valentine's Day Sign
- Piece of Wood
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Paint Brush
- Transfer Paper
Step 1 – Pick Out Your Wood
I used a leftover piece of wood I had from a DIY Wall Art project I did for Amy. I spent $7.00 on it and had it cut to 3 12×12 pieces. This was the 3rd piece!!
Step 2 – Paint Your Wood
Next I painted the wood. I needed to paint on a total of three coats for this project. I let each coat dry 15 minutes.
Step 3 – Cut Your Stencil
Now it's time to create your stencil. I have a Silhouette cutting machine that I use for all my sign projects. I found my perfect font and cut it on vinyl. I removed the “XOXO” so that I could use this as a stencil.
Step 4 – Add Stencil
Next I added my transfer paper to the vinyl so that I could add the stencil to the wood. I made sure to smooth down the vinyl so it would stick to the wood easily. Then I removed my transfer paper. Now I have a perfect stencil for my sign.
Step 5 – Fill In Stencil
Now the fun part, filling in our stencil. For the “O” I filled in with red paint and let dry 20 minutes. I wanted to make sure the paint was completely dry before I added my glitter.
Next I filled in the “X” with Mod Podge and sprinkled my glitter on top. I waited 10 minutes then removed all my vinyl.
Now that I'm finished with my valentines craft, I'm ready to display. I really need to start pulling out more of my Valentine decor to go with my Valentine's Day sign!
The kids love when I decorate for Valentine's Day. It's just such a fun holiday and they love the red and glitter combo.
I had this simple Valentine's Day sign done in no time and I think it looks great. I can't wait to make a new sign like this for Easter. I just need to think of a super awesome idea.
If anyone has any questions about using the Silhouette, I'd love to answer!!
