This fun, Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign has everything you could want for festive holiday decor, using metallics, glitter, and 3D elements to really make the message pop!
I have to confess, I absolutely love glittery and sparkly crafts. So when I found this woodcut lettering during my Valentine’s Day Craft Supply Haul at Target, jumped on the chance to make it sparkle as a sign. 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 then added the Happy Valentine’s Day words at Target, but I found some cute replacement pieces for you in the materials list.
And what’s extra great is that because you’ll use spray paint, you’ll be able to whip up this sign in no time. You can still use paint and a brush of course, but it’s hard for me to pass up a chance to craft more efficiently. And if the fuchsia glitter background is a little bit too much for your design aesthetic, no biggie, just swap it out for a different color or a metallic or matte paper instead. I mean, really, you can use these same three elements in a number of different ways to get just about any combo that suits your fancy. Looking at it now, I think it would also look lovely in soft whites and pinks.
I’m primarily showing you that you can place wood lettering over an open wood craft frame and use decorative paper to fill in the open space. The possibilities are truly endless. You can also take this concept to other holiday decor or even just inspirational sayings. It’s just a fun way to make a sign with more dimension.

Glittery Happy Valentine’s Day Sign Steps
1: Spray paint the frame gold. Let it dry completely before moving it or flipping it over. I painted two coats. I also painted the front, back, and all the sides.
2: Spray paint the words black. Let it dry completely between two coats. I only painted the front and sides of this piece.
3: Cover the front of the words with an even coat of Mod Podge. Not too much, not too little.
4: Generously sprinkle the fine black glitter over all of the Mod Podged areas. Turn it on its side and tap the back firmly to release all of the excess glitter. Let it dry completely.
I highly recommend sealing the glitter with the clear coat spray sealer I linked to in the Materials list to keep the glitter from shedding off on to literally everything, lol.
5: Cut the glitter cardstock into a 10″x12″ piece or a size to fit the opening of your frame.
6: 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.
7: 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.
8: 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 have always loved fuschia and think it’s a bold and exciting color to use for Valentine’s Day crafts, for sure. I also want to mention that for reasons beyond explanation, this was the first time I had used spray paint for one of my wooden craft projects. I know! Why!? My only explanation is that I had 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.
Update: Yeah, I really like using spray paint if at all possible. Krylon has quite a few color options as does Rustoleum and both offer chalk versions that are amazing to work with. Since moving into my new house, with the more muted color scheme, I’m finding that this really pops off the wall, but I’m not hating that. Besides, it’s not like Valentine’s decorations are up for that long anyway.

Thanks, Jodi. I put a piece of tissue paper or a page from a store flyer underneath it, then when I’m done, I fold that in half and pour the excess back into the glitter bottle. No mess. I may find a stray flake of glitter here or there, but I don’t mind, lol.
