DIY Wooden Valentine Sign Supplies

You can make these DIY wooden Valentine signs using all wood frames from the dollar store, you don’t even need to reverse the frame, just paint them.

Two Valentine wood signs with white backgrounds and natural wood frames, one says love and the second one a layered cardboard heart. Both signs are accessorized with pretty felt balls in shades of pink and brown.

How to Make This Sign for Valentine’s Day

Valentine Day Sign Supplies

Besides the little frames, you will need:

  • white, grey, and soft pink craft paint
  • tiny paintbrush
  • Love sign free printable pattern.
  • Dollar store pre-done Valentine hearts or cardboard.
  • Hot glue, or E6000.
  • Pink felt garland or a felt balls

Start by painting two coats of white paint inside your wooden frame, try not to get any on the sides. You can run a length of painter’s tape along the inside of the frame but I just used a small paintbrush to paint along the edges. Let the paint dry between coats.

Once dry download and print out the Love pattern. Use a pencil to trace the letters on the back of the pattern.

Center the pattern over your frame and press over the letters several times so that the pencil lead transfers onto your frame. This works because the background is white.

Using a tiny paintbrush and soft grey craft. paint over the letters.

Paint the large heart with soft pink paint. Let dry. You may want to do a second coat, I needed two coats for mine.

The pattern includes a second little heart to show the placement of a small cardboard Valentine. Using a cardboard heart makes the two small signs coordinate with each other. If you’re not making both signs you can paint the second heart a soft gold cream or dark pink instead.

Adding the Felt Ball Garland

The little swag of felt balls is made using multi-coloured felt balls, strung onto a string then glued to the back of the frame. I cut the felt balls from a long garland I have had forever. Although you can find very similar ones at the dollar store. I trimmed a small section, looped it over the front of the frame, and attached the string to the back with a staple. If you don’t have a large staple gun, I would use hot glue or a thumb tack instead.

Small DIY Valentine Sign

To make the second handmade Valentine sign I used these simple cardboard Valentines also from the dollar store. If you don’t have the pre-done hearts, just draw a simple Valentine shape on some plain cardboard and cut it out.

Layer the cardboard hearts on top of each other with a little bit of hot glue between each layer.

Once you attach the cardboard Valentines on top of each other, use hot glue to attach the Valentines to the frame backing.

I love how these handmade Valentine’s Day signs turned out. They are pretty and the minimalist style makes them usable any time of year.
