Last Minute Valentine’s Day Sign
You might be familiar with Rae Dunn’s popular pottery line that is featured in every Instagram kitchen these days.
These products feature clean white mugs and other pottery ware items adorned with thin black lettered words. They fit perfectly in the “airy” and minimalist styles that are very popular lately.
While I don’t own any of these products, I do enjoy their aesthetic.
So I thought I’d throw together a last minute decor idea inspired by these popular items and their single word designs.
Last week I said wreaths were one of my favorite DIY decor items. And I wasn’t lying. But another equally favorite item is a simple painted sign.
You can paint just about anything you can think of on a wooden sign, and I never get tired of incorporating them into holiday and every day decor.
I can’t even really call this a tutorial, they were so easy to put together. And they were so fast that instead of making just one, I threw together three of them.
Using sign blanks from Hobby Lobby starting at $4.99 regularly priced, and paint already on hand, I made these for practically nothing.
I did paint a base color on one of the signs that was just unfinished wood. The other two were already framed and painted as is.
I printed my word designs off of PicMonkey (a free design site) using their Mossy font. All I had to do was transfer them and paint a quick layer over them. The lettering is simple enough that they were already dry and ready to use in minutes.
Of course these signs could be used for any holiday, season, or style of decor. As I’ve said before, I enjoy a more understated Vday decor style, so I thought they’d be perfect for this holiday!
Do you own any Rae Dunn pottery or enjoy this style?
