*Surface of choice-I picked this sign up from the Dollar Tree
*Decor Art “Green Lagoon” paint
*Apple Barrel “Snow White” paint
*Wooden hearts-Dollar Tree
*Scrapbook paper-Hobby Lobby
First, I turned my sign over and painted the back with my green lagoon paint. Once that had dried I took my white paint and dry brushed over my base color to get my desired look.
Next, I traced my hearts on to my scrap book paper, cut them out and used mod podge to adhere the paper to the hearts.
Now, its time to put the project together. I found this buffalo check ribbon at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be cute to use for the “X”. Then obviously I used the hearts for the “O”. Looking cute already but of course we have to add a bow and why not a little jute twine. For the bow I just used a few different patterns/textures of ribbon and simply crisscrossed them to make my bow.
The first thing I did was take my canvas off of the frame. You can do this by using a utility knife or staple remover.
Once I had the canvas removed, I stained the frame and my heart piece.
Next, I cut along the fold lines of the canvas so it would fit back on the frame and then glued my canvas back to the frame. I actually used the back side of the canvas(the oatmeal colored side) for my project as this side looks a little more rustic then just the plain white.
Next, I glued on my heart. The heart would also be cute with a white washed finish but for now I decided to just leave mine as is!
And of course to finish it off, I added a super quick and easy bow! It doesn’t get much easier than this, does it?
The next bow that I use quite often is my crisscross bow! This bow is super quick and easy! I promise, even if you think your not a very good bow maker, you will be able to do this one! This is my go to bow for smaller projects. You can also adjust the size of this bow simply by adjusting the lengths of your ribbons or by adding additional pieces of ribbon to the base of the bow.
