I Love You Wall Sign




Do you remember this I Love You Printable I shared last week? And the Alcohol Inks I shared yesterday? Well it's time to show what I made with them.



I Love You Wall Sign! I love how it turned out you want to make one?
Here is what you will need.....

  • Foam Board or Cardboard
  • Burlap
  • Twine
  • Glue stick
  • Glue Gun
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Modge Podge
  • 12 x 12 sheet of card stock
  • Paper flowers


I print my picture out to an 8 x 10. Cut your foam board or cardboard to 12" x 12"



Cut your burlap just larger than your board and glue down two of the side on the back. ( I did not do this but if I was to make another I would modge podge the burlap down in the front.)


Glue your corners up and then glue your other two sides down.



This is what the front should look like.



You can see in the picture below I added a piece of twine glued each side to each of the top corners for hanging of the sign I just forgot to get a picture of this. Add glue with a glue stick all over the back of the board.



Add a 12 X 12 piece of card stock to the top of the glue just for finishing look, the glue the side with the burlap down with your glue gun.


Paint modge podge on the back of your picture.



Press in place on top of the burlap covered board pressing firmly, let dry. Paint Modge Podge on top and let dry.


Lightly spay with brown Alcohol Ink and add your paper flowers that are sprayed with your Alcohol Ink. My flowers are Paper Plate Roses. If your are interested I can do a tutorial.


Tie a bow on top and your done!
