Hi, friends!! Welcome to our Heart Blogging Link Party!!
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, so last week I thought I would start working on my husband’s DIY Valentine’s gift instead of rushing at the last moment. And I have finished it. You may be thinking that if I show it, my husband will probably see it too. Don’t worry, I have a plan for that! I told him that I was going to share a lot on social media these weeks so it would be better for him to turn my notifications off. If my plan fails and he sees it, I have a B plan which is making something different for him 🙂
When I started thinking about what to make, I remembered a friend of mine who show me some time ago a pretty thing she made for her husband. I rang her to tell what I was thinking and she hadn’t any problem with me sharing it. So today I am sharing what I did plus a free template for you to download in case you feel inspired to make one.
All started with a piece of wood I was given by some friends, the same friends who get rid of these metallic drawers.
I printed and cut some shapes, and used my Cameo to make some stencils, which I taped in place.
I hammered some nail heads to make the Moon and some stars.
Then with some DIY chalk paint and a piece of foam I made the text. When working with stencils is better to tap than to brush the paint.
I removed the stencil while still wet.
Now it was time to add the string. I chose white because of the Moon’s color and the text.
I outlined the Moon to get a more defined shape.
I really love how it turned out, and how the white contrast with the color of the wood.
I just need to wrap it and wait for Valentine’s Day to give it to my husband!!
If you want to make your own, you can download the JPG template for free and high res here.
What about you? Do you do anything special for Valentine’s?
