Valentine Chalkboard Sign
I started with a sanded board, any size really, and some red paint.
I gave my board a couple of coats.
Then I cut out vinyl on my Crictut Mini, I used the craft room so I was able to weld the letters together to make it one sticker instead of having one for each letter, awesome! Oh and I don’t know why my camera and the lighting in my craft room came together and decided to make my mat look awful, it isn’t really as dirty as it looks!
I put the transfer tape over the top of the vinyl and peeled it back, it peels it off the backing for you when you do this step. Make sure you take out all the pieces you don’t want, like the small ones in the “e” and the “a”.
Then I did as the tape suggested and transfered the image to the top and center of the board.
And peeled off the tape.
Here is where I tried something new, normally I would tape off the section for the chalkboard but I have seen the free-handed look so much lately, I thought I would try it! My OCD flared a little bit while I was doing it, but I am happy with the finished product.
Here is what you do if you would like to hang it; I got the coolest little picture hanging kits from the dollar store, love it!
To put them in the wood, first I took a push pin and pressed it in where I wanted the eye hook. This is like “pre-drilling” the hole but not actually drilling, does that make sense?
Then I had a hole to screw in the little eye hook. I repeated this on the other side.
Then you would just add some ribbon to each side and done! It is ready to hang and write sweet notes on!
