Bushel & A Peck Valentine’s Sign

Yesterday we shared some tasty Valentine’s Day treats so today is a VDay craft!  We just love the song lyrics “I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!”  We made one for our sister for Christmas and our IG friends LOVED it!  Since the one we made over the holidays was her style, we wanted to make a fun Valentine’s version that was more our style.  Check out how to make this pretty Bushel and a Peck Valentine’s sign then read on for an new, exciting announcement for a darling Holiday Pin Board that we want YOUR help with!!

This sign is a breeze to make!! Just check out our full sign STEP BY STEP process that we’ve shared a million times on a million different posts!! But today we’re sharing a little secret…one that we’ve been using for years: Brush a light coat of decoupage over your stencil to create a seal. You will have crisp lines after! Same goes for painting stripes! Before we figured out this trick with decoupage (on my daughter’s coral polka dot bedroom), we were using clear caulking.  I ran out of the caulk and experimented with decoupage…cheaper and faster, whoop!

Painting Tip! Brush a light coat of decoupage over your stencil to create a seal. You will have crisp lines after! Same goes for painting stripes! |lollyjane.com

Supplies used: DecoArt acrylic “Spice Pink”, DA Multi-surface gray “Dolphin” and DA Decoupage in gloss. (The white isn’t pictured but is acrylic “Snow”)  Check out all their DecoArt blog posts too from bloggers all over the country, such inspiring ideas!  So now you know how to make the sign.  Do you like it??  We love how soft it turned out, perfect for Valentine’s Day or even one of your kids’ rooms.  You know you’ve either sung that song or have had it sung to you (;

    I have been looking around for a vinyl cutter but with so many out there I am feeling a little lost. I am wondering if you have an suggestions or recommendations that could point me in the right direction. I am really just looking for something that I can use for home DIY projects and gifts. Thanks

      Hi Chrystal,

      We’ve had an industrial vinyl cutter for years and love it. We’ve used the Silhouette Cameo which is perfect for something like you’re describing. We’ve never used a Cricut so don’t have an opinion on that so sounds like a Silhouette is the way to go! (:

      Good luck!
