glitter heart valentine decor
Happy pre-heart month!! Love love love Valentine’s Day, it’s a fun holiday to decorate for. And since it’s January 10th, we’re sharing a fun HEART themed idea with our talented group of 10 bloggy buddies. We know you’ll totally love (pun intended!) these projects that are sure to get your creative juices flowing for V <3 Day, which is just over a month away. So pin our collage after you check out our glitter heart Valentine decor sign then peek at all of the other fabulous projects by some of our creative friends! And be sure to check out all of our past monthly 10 Blog Hop ideas, so much inspiration to check out!
There is definitely an art (er, learning curve) to hand painting signs and although we’re not sure if we’ve conquered it (or are just uber spoiled by our vinyl cutter) but it was fun to take this project old school and use nothing but paint mediums and a paint brush.
To get started you’ll need a 24×24 piece of MDF, raspberry acrylic paint, gloss enamel paint (optional), white acrylic paint, gold acrylic paint, mod podge, fine glitter and your favorite fine tip paint brush. Note: We started out with a foam brush but using a finer tip worked out easier, although painting the raspberry paint & white heart with a foam brush is recommended! 😉
This was seriously easy to do.
Although it takes more time than slapping a stencil on the wood and having perfectly sized polka dots, we love the distressed shabbiness of it. Plus, it was made with LOVE! Haha! 😉
Now take a looksie at some other seriously cute Valentine decor… we HEART it! (Oh man we are on a roll! LOL)

Amazing! No wood around but today, we’re on a Snow/sick Day, so we’ll improvise! Gonna grab the acrylics, mix up some perfectly pinks, & different cardstock colors, glitter & gold–& get to it! Thanks for sharing!
Seriously love it – you described it perfectly with distressed shabbiness – it has such a cute, casual, fun, relaxed feel. Goes perfectly with the vintage trailer…
THis is right up my alley, but what the heck is that cute little yellow/chrome camper in the background??? Tell me more!!!
Love love love! And that staging is divine. 🙂 Love you girls! xoxo
That’s SUPER cute!! I love the colors you used!!
Thank you, Emma!! We debated with each other over the colors, actually, LOL!!
I love this you guys! So adorable!
This is such a sweet and simple painting. I love how you styled it as well. So pretty =)
Thank you!! Our friend had their glamper in our yard from a previous party so we took advantage (;
So I’m pretty much obsessed with this and need it for over my fireplace!!!
Quick question – what kind of board did you use?
Thanks for catching that, LA! We used a 24×24 piece of MDF 😉
MDF, our fav! Pressed wood which is oh so smooth!
Love! Totally making myself one!!
