In case you didn’t know, I’m an avid DIYer and I really enjoy creating cute and simple projects to dress up the home. But being super busy, I like crafts that don’t take a lot of time to create and ones that are versatile enough that I don’t have to take down a week later when the next holiday rolls out. Enter this super adorable I Love You Canvas.
This DIY I Love You Canvas is the perfect decor to add to your home for Valentine’s Day and is versatile enough that it can be kept up year round. Even better, most supplies can be found at your local Dollar Tree, making it a super easy and affordable DIY project!
DIY Valentine’s Day I Love You Canvas
Supplies Needed: 11×14 Canvas, Black Vinyl Letters, Cardstock, Scissors, Mod Podge, Small Foam Brush
First things first, stick on all of your black vinyl letters onto the canvas. The ones I purchased at Dollar Tree were just peel and stick, which made things super easy. Since I’m a tad OCD, I used a ruler to make sure my letters were straight and spaced evenly. You’ll also want to ensure you leave enough space for the areas where the “I Heart You” will go.
Next, using the vinyl letters for a template, trace I and U on the cardstock, and trace a small sized heart. Place the letters on the canvas to locate the right spot, and then gently glue them down using mod podge underneath.
Wait 5 minutes for the letters to dry completely before applying a thin layer of mod podge over the entire canvas. I used “glossy” mod podge because I wanted that particular finish, but it is completely up to personal preference, and you could easily use a matte finish instead. Let the canvas dry completely, then hang or display!
So there you have it! I love how easy and inexpensive this canvas was to create and I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial! I sure do love how it turned out and how it looks on top of my desk next to one of my wedding photos! Let me know what you think in the comments, and please give it a pin or share, if you loved it!
Have a great week and stay warm if you’re getting snow like me! Thanks for stopping by!- Cara
