DIY Simple Valentine Canvas Decor

I heart the day of love! I really do. I love the pink and red candy, the class valentines and the red pancakes I make for breakfast on February 14th.

The only thing that I don't really love is the decor options that are available to purchase. Wa-waa :(
 I know that I am not the only one who feels this way, so I thought that I would come up with a simple piece of Valentine's decor! You are excited..right? Wa-hoo!

Pin It

Supplies needed:
Canvas-it's ok if there is something already on the canvas (painting) because you will cover it up
White round paper doily
Red heart doily
Red glitter
Junk Bow
"14" cut out of Brookie Vinyl

I love a simple project and this one is no different. It even goes a little bit faster if your kids are in bed and you have a diet coke and some chocolate to keep you company.

(you are going to want to glitter your heart doily before you start and let it dry overnight.)

1-I covered my canvas (that was previously a craft FAIL) with cute polka dot paper. I then added a strip of old school lined paper. I used double stick tape to adhere it. Worked like a charm.

2- I then added the vinyl 14 that I cut out with my Cricut Mini. I used the Storybook Font.

3- I then adhered the white doily  Some of the doily will fold over the edge of the canvas.That is what you want. I just glued it down on the sides. 

4-Add your glittered, red heart, doily. Double stick tape to the rescue again. 

5-I love a great junk bow-so that was one of final steps. Not sure what a junk bow is? Don't worry, I did a whole post about it. You can read about it here. 

6- I used a fine point pen to draw "I love you" & to outline the 14. This is totally optional. So, if you hate your handwriting, no worries. 

Done and done! I finished this whole project while watching an episode of Nashville. So, it doesn't take too long. I hope that you will try this project out. I think that you will really LOVE the results!
