How to Make a Glittered Black and White DIY Wood LOVE Sign for Your Home Decor

“Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” – Mother Teresa

One of the first things I decorated when we moved into our new house was the bookcase.  I love it because now my collections are all displayed in one place versus randomly around the house (or tucked in drawers or cabinets) like they used to be. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I’d make something special for my bookcase that complimented my black, white, and gold décor. So, I came up with this easy DIY wooden LOVE sign.

Making the DIY Wooden LOVE Sign

I found these wooden letters and wood plaque at Michael’s craft store for around $10 total.

The first thing I did was lightly sand the edges to remove splinters.

Next, I used some gold spray paint to paint the edges of the plaque, and the edges and inside of the letters. Since the letters are so small, you may get spray paint on your fingers. The easiest way to remove it is with nail polish remover and a cotton ball.

Next, I applied glue to the top of the letters with a foam brush and sprinkled gold glitter on top. Set them aside to dry.

While the letters are drying, paint the top of the plaque white. I painted three coats. I only waited about 5 minutes in between coats.

Once the paint is dry, I used a ruler and pencil to mark every half inch on each side.

The fastest way to paint the black stripes, paint every other black stripe so you don’t have to wait for each stripe to dry. Them go back and finish the other stripes.

When placing the painter’s tape, use the pencil marks as a guide for straight lines. Make sure the tape is tightly sealed to prevent bleeding.

Lastly, use hot glue to glue the letters onto the plaque.
