I have to confess, I absolutely love glittery and sparkly crafts. So when I had a chance to make a project for the Bling on the Love Valentine’s Day Craft Blog Hop, I jumped on it. This Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign fits the bill perfectly, I think. I had the fuchsia glitter cardstock on hand, found the laser cut wood frame at Hobby Lobby and got the wood Happy Valentine’s Day words Target with my Valentine’s Day Craft Supply Haul, but I found some cute replacement pieces for you in the materials list.

Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign steps
one: Spray paint the frame gold. Let it dry completely. I painted two coats.
two: Spray paint the words black. Let it dry completely. I painted two coats.
three: Cover the front of the words with an even coat of Mod Podge. Not too much, not too little.
four: Generously sprinkle the black glitter over all of the Mod Podged areas. Tap off the excess glitter. Let it dry completely. If you like you can seal the glitter with Spray Laquer.
five: Cut the glitter cardstock into a 10″x12″ piece.
six: Apply tacky glue to the back of the wood frame and attach the glitter cardstock, face down and centered. Let the glue dry completely. I set something heavy on it to make sure the cardstock got a solid grip.
seven: Apply tacky glue to the ends of the wooden words and stick them to the front of the gold frame. I centered mine, but you can place them however you like best. Let this dry completely before trying to hang it up or your words will sliiiide down the frame.
eight: Stick the Command Strip on to the back of the frame then hang your new sign. If you don’t like Command Strips, you can use one of those frame hangers or staple on a short ribbon.
That’s it! I’m so in love with the color scheme for this Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign. I don’t know if you noticed, but that fuchsia glitter cardstock just happens to be the same pink we use on our site, so it’s definitely one of our favorites. I also want to mention that for reasons beyond explanation, this was the first time I have used spray paint for one of my wooden craft projects. I know! Why!? My only explanation is that I’ve just always used acrylic paint. There are so many colors to choose from versus spray paint. I will definitely keep spray paint in mind in the future, though.
