DIY “I Love You” Valentine’s Day Canvas
This “I Love You” Valentine’s Day Canvas is not only super adorable but it’s also super easy to make! Below I’ve included all the supplies you’ll need to make it with and helpful, step-by-step instructions and photos on how to make your canvas.
As I mentioned above, this Valentine’s Day Canvas is perfect for displaying during the Valentine’s Day holiday, but can also be displayed in your home year round if you want. It would also make a great gift to give someone for Valentine’s Day!
Supplies Needed for Valentine’s Day Canvas:
How to Make Your Valentine’s Day Canvas
Step 1: To get started with this Valentine’s Day Canvas, start by first sticking 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.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: 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.
Step 4: Let your Valentine’s Day Canvas dry completely, then hang or display! I sure do love how it looks on top of my desk next to one of my wedding photos!

That looks great! To be honest, I thought it was machine made, everything is so straight!
Aw, best comment ever goes to Beth! haha No seriously I had to move those letters 800 times before it was straight lol.
Awww! That turned out super cute! 🙂 I really like how the letters ended up being arranged, it’s so clever!
Thank-you Rachel! 🙂
This is such a cute and fun idea!!! And it looks so easy to make. I would be major OCD with the ruler too lol

Thank-you! Yeah I wish I was one of those who could just stick the letters on and it magically be straight, but not so lol.
I really love this idea! It is so cute and easy to make. I love making gifts instead of buying them so this is perfect!
Thank-you! And this one is so simple too!
This is so dang cute. We always make each other something so this may have to be done!
Thanks! Oh that’s sweet that you all always make something!
I’ve always wanted a sign like this. I guess I should make it now. 🙂 Too Cute!

Ahhhh! I love DIY projects! This is so cute. So tempted to make it, but I have so much art I still need to hang up. Gah! So so cute!
Thanks Cassie! I know what you mean I’m so bad at getting something and then not hanging it for months. I always make my husband do that because he can hang stuff straight haha! 😉
This is so cute!!! I love how the red sticks out among the black and white. I could so see my OCD self go a little crazy though with the ruler. I am a ridiculous person.
Thank-you! & yeah-side note, I moved those around probably 8,567 times lol.
This is so cute!! And I feel like you could totally leave it out year-round!
Thanks! That’s why I chose red over pink letters, so it would be more versatile. 🙂
