I reused the sign, really I used the back so I still have my CHRISTmas sign for next year!! YAY!! love reused and making things double duty!!
So I took the sign which was unpainted on the back and spray painted red just like the front. Then I needed to cover the partial cut that is at the bottom left side of the sign. I cut out strips of hearts from some left over Christmas cardstock, I just flipped over and used the white. I cut the hearts with my brand new Silhouette machine!! I won her at Skip to My Lou in November (trust me, if you say oh I never win, start entering giveaways on blogs!!!) So I got the Silhouette right before Christmas and I just had not had time to use her, so I was super excited when I finally was able to!! After cutting the strips of hears I used modpodge to attach the hearts along the bottom of the sign.
Then I used my Silhouette and contact paper to cut out be my valentine stencil. I then used some of my red and white paint left over from Christmas craft projects to mix up a nice pink and painted the letters! The contact paper did not stick as well as I would like but that is ok, I like the feathered look of the letters. As soon as I painted the letters I pulled the contact paper stencil up so that it would not shift and smear the paint. And there you have a sign!!
