The other day, I was out with my friends, Kami (Sweet Charli) and Staci (The Potters Place). We were in the Target Dollar Spot (cause that’s where the cool kids hang out!), and we saw these adorable unfinished Valentines crafts. We all loved them, and each had our own vision of how we could finish them. So we decided we would challenge ourselves to take the same craft, and each make it match our own styles and decor.
Ok, so we all started out with the same exact thing. Pretty simple, and unfinished.
I painted mine dark gray, and cut a “love” arrow stencil out of vinyl.
I placed my vinyl on my heart and painted over the entire thing (even the vinyl) with white paint.
Once the paint was dry, I peeled off my stencil, showing the dark gray paint behind it.
Then I distressed the heck out of it with sandpaper (this is the part that really gave it some character).
I tied a bow out of pink tulle and hot glued it to the front.
It’s lookin’ pretty cute! The distressing really added a lot of character!
I replaced the jute it was hanging by with some pink tulle, and called it done! Super simple, and for $3, it adds a lot to my decor!
