Valentine's Canvas

If you're on Pinterest I'm sure you've seen this picture.

I've seen the saying incorporated in home decor, but it's so perfect for Valentine's Day too! I have a few extra canvases lying around so I thought I'd make my own.

I started out by painting the canvas with several coats of red acrylic paint.

Then I added white vinyl letters cut from my Silhouette. I prefer to use masking tape instead of transfer paper because it's cheaper and much easier to work with. I laid the words down and played with the layout a bit until it was just right.

Once I had the letters pressed down I added a few paper hearts to the front and hot glued some ribbon around the edge.

I love what it adds to our console table.

But adding this meant I also moved around a few other things and finally got our china cabinet just right.

I have one more Valentine's project to finish up and I'm all ready for next week!
