Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign

I have to confess, I absolutely love glittery and sparkly crafts. So when I had a chance to make a project for the Bling on the Love Valentine’s Day Craft Blog Hop, I jumped on it. This Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign fits the bill perfectly, I think. I had the fuchsia glitter cardstock on hand, found the laser cut wood frame at Hobby Lobby and got the wood Happy Valentine’s Day words Target with my Valentine’s Day Craft Supply Haul, but I found some cute replacement pieces for you in the materials list.

six: Apply tacky glue to the back of the wood frame and attach the glitter cardstock,  face down and centered. Let the glue dry completely. I set something heavy on it to make sure the cardstock got a solid grip.

seven: Apply tacky glue to the ends of the wooden words and stick them to the front of the gold frame. I centered mine, but you can place them however you like best. Let this dry completely before trying to hang it up or your words will sliiiide down the frame.

eight: Stick the Command Strip on to the back of the frame then hang your new sign. If you don’t like Command Strips, you can use one of those frame hangers or staple on a short ribbon.

That’s it! I’m so in love with the color scheme for this Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign. I don’t know if you noticed, but that fuchsia glitter cardstock just happens to be the same pink we use on our site, so it’s definitely one of our favorites. I also want to mention that for reasons beyond explanation, this was the first time I have used spray paint for one of my wooden craft projects. I know! Why!?  My only explanation is that I’ve just always used acrylic paint. There are so many colors to choose from versus spray paint. I will definitely keep spray paint in mind in the future, though.

  1. Oh that is so cute for Valentines day! I would never have thought to do something like that! I need some decoartions for Valentines day!

    1. Thanks, Jodi. I put a piece of tissue paper or a page from a store flyer underneath it, then when I’m done, I fold that in half and pour the excess back into the glitter bottle. No mess. I may find a stray flake of glitter here or there, but I don’t mind, lol.

  2. I absolutely love the word design on this sign and the fact that the black and the pink go hand and hand together!

  3. How very unique, my daughter in law just loves glitter. too.
    Like you templates ideas. the anchor was what I was looking for, thanks.

  4. Who doesn’t like glitter !

    I have no idea what modge podge is!

    I have done glitter projects using clear glue with a paint brush !

    Very pretty and would also look great for other words of inspiration inside a gold frame !

  5. This is gorgeous! I would love to try it, but I get impatient, and I have a feeling mine would not turn out as well as yours would.

  6. This sign is adorable! I’m not at all crafty, so this is not something I could easily make. It’s super cute, though.
