If you follow my blog, you know that I like to decorate and adorn my home with natural accents whenever possible. Well, my little Valentine Art falls right into that category with its natural colors and a little bit of shine for fun!
I started with a small canvas that I painted in natural tones. I have had it for a while…and just decided to use it for this Valentine Art project.
First, I printed out an ampersand to use as a pattern…
I used a really clever method to trace and transfer the image onto my canvas. Simply use a piece of newsprint…and trace the image with a pencil. The ink from the newspaper makes just enough of an outline to see.
Then start placing your thumbtacks around the edge of the image. I purchased mine at the dollar store.
I decided to add a bit of burlap around the edge for some texture and interest…
Then, just freehand your script onto the canvas. I used this font as my inspiration.
I placed my little Valentine Art on my mantel…next to some vintage mirrors, a black lantern, and a fern placed in a vintage ice bucket.
As you can see…Valentine decor does not have to be red to be festive! You could even use and display this cute little canvas all year long. I can see it on my nightstand or showing up on my 15 minute gallery wall I shared here.
How do you like to decorate for Valentines Day?
