 Hello Again!  Michelle from Chalkboardblue!  I wanted to share with you an item I made to decorate with for Valentine's Day...
a pallet-style board accented with wooden decorated hearts!
I found some wood shapes cut into hearts at Hobby Lobby.  I painted some of  them red and pink.  I traced and cut some music sheet paper and used old book paper and glued them to cover the remaining hearts.
I cut some vinyl with sayings that I wanted to be on the different hearts and placed them...
I did various words...
 and numbers...

 

I made my pallet board out of a plank of cedar fencing I purchased at Lowes.  I cut 3 boards from this plank, each measuring  18 3/4 inches long.
I s tained the 3 boards with a  Minwax Special Walnut  color stain...
When  the stain was dry,   I sanded it down a bit.  I next painted a coat of white paint over the stain...

 

When the white boards were dry, I turned them over.  I took some scrap boards and cut them 1.5 inches wide by 13 inches long.

 

placed some adhesive glue on the cross boards...
used a brad nailer to nail the cross boards to the backs of the white boards... Flipped it back over and the pallet portion is complete.
 I next arranged the hearts how I wanted them and glued them onto the pallet board...
Displayed it with a little valentine garland...
The finished decoration measures roughly 16 3/8 in tall by 18 3/4 in long.  Perfect to put almost anywhere!
If  you would like to see another pallet-style Valentine I made and personalized for our family using yard sticks and wood that I cut and made to look like reclaimed wood, you can see that by visiting my blog here:
Happy Valentines Day!
With Much Love & Gratitude,
