I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day in my home, but decided this year to make a small pallet sign to add to my winter decor on my mantel. Just a little touch of LOVE for the upcoming holiday. I wanted to continue my neutral color scheme, so instead of using bright reds and pinks, I kept it low key; using instead white, black and silver.

This was a fun craft and you could do it a variety of different ways or with different colors. I purchased the Walnut Hollow Rustic Pallet, 11 by 11-Inch sign on Amazon. I had some leftover white craft paint, so I didn't need to purchase that. The only other thing I used was my Silhouette machine to make the word LOVE and the arrows out of vinyl.
RUSTIC PALLET LOVE SIGN:
Step 1: After minor sanding to make the pallet smoother, I watered down my white craft paint to make it more of a whitewash versus a thick paint. I wanted the rustic wood to show through but add just a touch of color to the pallet.
Step2: I started brushing it on, but found that since the paint was so watery, it was easier to rub it on with a cloth. That way the paint didn't spray everywhere!
Step 3: Using my Silhouette machine, I cut out the word LOVE and 2 arrows out of vinyl.
Step 4: Once adhered on the sign, smooth down the vinyl with a credit card or other straight edge object to get rid of any bumps.
You're All Done!
Now that it's finished, I think I may leave it up all winter!
What do you think?
