DIY Wall Art ~ LOVE

Hey friends!

Ash and I had a great time at the Haven Conference in Georgia last week!  We will share more on our time there soon!  I am still a little pooped from the trip, so today I worked on an easy little revamp I have been planning.  Many of you may remember my DIY wall art LOVE sign I made a while back.  While I do still love the sign (no pun intended ;-)) I am slightly “over” the color I chose for my heart.  I have been planning a way to make the sign more neutral without painting it.  I finished it today, and I think I love it!

Wood Love Sign

how to make fabric flowers


You can see my tutorial on the wood sign HERE!!  It is super easy and cheap to make!

I do love the pop of color I originally added on the sign, but I am ready to go a different direction in that room.  To add the rosettes to this project I used this tutorial on how to make a fabric flower HERE!!

I started my making a bunch…

diy rolled rosettes

And then used my hot glue gun to cover up the heart! Easy peasy!

hot glue fabric flowers

That’s it!

I love the way the fabric looks against the wood!  So fun!

Here are a few more pictures…

Hope you love it… Can’t wait to show you what direction I went with the new color!

If you do love it, I would SO appreciate some pins and shares below.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great week!!

        I built my own wall art using the plans at www. – highly recommended you check those out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha

    I absolutely LOVE this too…problem is that I don’t have a projector thingy-ma-jig so I was wondering if you would sell me a template for it? Or how can I do this without a thingamabob??? Lol

    What kind of fabric did you use to make the rosettes?

    • Shanty2Chic on June 29, 2012 at 11:07 pm
