valentine's heart sign

i have had this router-ed piece of wood sitting in my craft closet for over 3 years now. i just never knew what to do with it so it stayed in there forever.

then last week i decided i needed some valentine's decor when i saw a cute little berry wreath at Micheal's. and that's where my idea began.

so i painted the wood brown (i've seen pieces like this at Micheal's for a few bucks) and then i sanded it a little.

next i printed the words 'be mine' (font - impervious) on a creme piece of cardstock.

then i distressed the edges using this ink that a friend introduced me to.

next i mod podge -ed it on the wood.


i nailed this little heart (which i ended up getting for 40% off at JoAnn's) underneath the writing.

here's the final product.

sit on an easel or hang with ribbon on the wall.


  1. LOVE it!!! It turned out so darling!

  2. Okay, this is adorable!!!! I notice that you are using different fonts than I have. Where do you get those cute fonts? (smiley monster, impervious, etc...)
