I decided to put another twist on the mini pallet signs using wood shims. Instead of making a full square, I decided to make a horizontal sign using only 3 shims. This is what I came up with:
I used wood glue to glue the shims together and then also glued a large Popsicle stick on the back to hold it together. I created a stencil for the L, C, K and Y using my Silhouette and then cut out the gold U.
I painted it green and then filled in the letters and sanded everything down and placed the gold U. I painted and sanded the clover, added the burlap and button and glued it on:
I just used a $1 heart frame that I got at Michael's, painted the outside edge and inside of the heart then, covered it with scrapbook paper. I used glitter paper on the inside heart, glued the scrabble tiles and embellishments on, inked and sanded around all of the edges and ta-da! Done :)
Easy Sneezy! And, it looks super cute with all of my other Valentine decor :)
I am married to the love of my life, who I affectionately refer to as WHUB. I have been blessed with the two most amazing children; McKadee who is 21 (eek!) and constantly leaves me in awe of the beautiful person that she is, and Hunter who is 13 and keeps me laughing nonstop with his creativity and never fails to surprise me with his huge tender heart! Last but not least, I have my furbabies; Max who is half chihuahua half maltese and Mia who is a long haired chihuahua. Our latest addition to the fam is our grandfurbaby Lou who is short haired chihuahua. My family is the most important thing in the world to me and I try to enjoy every minute that I'm blessed with them.
I love to craft, refinish old furniture and scrapbook..... So many ideas, so little time!
