Valentines Day is right around the corner so I decided to try my hand at DIY wall art that would be suitable for Valentines day but look good year round. Once I removed all the Christmas decorations from our study, the room was bare. Like, really empty. I am in the process of decorating the room with colorful kid friendly decor and painted wooden “Love” letters from Hobby Lobby were the perfect choice to create something fun for one of the walls.
In an effort to create a gender neutral wall art piece, I chose bubble gum pink and navy blue acrylic craft paint as the color scheme and used an oil based sharpie pen (gold metallic) to add dots and a cute zigzag pattern.
I ordered the 18″ wooden letters from Hobby Lobby and picked up the acrylic paint and sharpie pen at Michaels. In 30 minutes, I had my letters painted and after about an hour drying time, I added the gold dots and zigzag pattern to the “O” and the “E”.
I had a small stencil with the zigzag pattern that I used but if you don’t, you can design free hand or simply pick up a stencil pattern at Michaels. The one I had was under $2 so they are very affordable.
I used 3m Command Adhesive Wall Strips to hang my letters.
DIY Valentine wall art is a quick and easy way to add character and texture to a room. I think the LOVE letters will stay in the room after Valentines day as I love how they coordinate with the existing decor in the room. Something fun and something different :).
