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!

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!!

    Thank you for the plan girls! I decided to do burlap flowers instead of fabric because I just couldn’t get the hang out it. This sign looks great in my bedroom

    What did you use for the stencils? No one local makes them that large and no way I want to free hand it..


  7. Holly on October 1, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    what kind of fabric did you use for the flowers?? and what are the dimensions for the letters?!

  8. Kristin on July 15, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Thank-you so much for the plans! I made the wine bottle vases too. Perfect for our bedroom!!

    So pretty! I have it pinned-can’t wait to try one . Thanks!

    I just hung mine up! It’s not nearly as polished as yours, but I “love” it! I don’t have a device for making stencils, and my local craft shop didn’t carry any big enough, so I made them with newspaper. I also used spray paint since that’s what I had, but I won’t make that mistake again since my lines weren’t crisp at all. I had to sand off a lot of spray that got under the stencil, which is why the stain is uneven, but I liked the effect, so I left it.

      How long did you make your boards

  13. Laura @ The Turquoise Home on October 24, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    I have a sign I made from pallets, but it’s so heavy I’m afraid to hang it on the wall. Is yours heavy? How did you hang it??

    • Shanty2Chic on October 24, 2012 at 12:55 pm

      Hey Laura,
      I have made several and I always anchor them and use picture hanging wire. You can buy the hanging kit at Wal-Mart or any craft store!

    I just made a version of this lastnight. It’s not totaly finished. But, thank you so much for the idea!

  15. Crystal on October 4, 2012 at 5:49 am

    I just bought the materials and even found the material at Hobby Lobby, but could you explain starting out the rosesettes a little more without using buttons?

  16. Christie on October 2, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    I LOVE this, so much in fact, I made one! Like I busted out the saw and everything! I never would have even attempted this without your tutorial. Thank you so much for sharing how to make this.

    • Shanty2Chic on October 4, 2012 at 7:47 am

      Oh that’s awesome Christie!! So happy you got brave! Isn’t it fun?? 🙂

    Since we bought our house last September, I have been trying to find something to put on our wall behind our bed and when I came across this on Pinterest last week, I knew I had to make it! Thank you so much for sharing! I finished mine today and I absolutely love it! Now I just have to bug hubby to hang it. 🙂

    • Shanty2Chic on October 4, 2012 at 7:47 am

      That is great Amber! I would love to see pics! 🙂

  18. GlamorousMommy on August 16, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Super cute!!

  19. Melody on August 16, 2012 at 1:47 am

    I can see this as a headboard for our bed too.

    • Shanty2Chic on August 16, 2012 at 4:19 pm

      Good idea Melody!! I love it! 😉

  20. Tracy Cosgrove on August 9, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    i saw your instructions on how to make the flowers just wondering did you put the buttons in the middle of these??? Just i hate my lamp shades and i thought this would make them interesting. Thanks 🙂 PS love your site

    • Shanty2Chic on August 16, 2012 at 4:20 pm

      I didn’t! Just started rolling from the inside and you can’t see where the fabric starts at all. I think they would be so cute on a lamp shade! I have some on a shade I did in my kitchen! Good luck!
