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.
