1. Find a plaque for the love sign. I used a square one. They are also called wood canvases.
2. Plan the layout of the hearts and the love on the plaque.
3. Paint the hearts and the letters red.
4. Take a combination of black, gray, and white paint on the brush, at one time, and paint it on the plaque. Paint a section and then take a damp paper towel, to wipe it off. This blends the colors for an aged look.
5. Set it aside to dry.
6. Put a dab of hot glue on the heart and put an end of the embroidery floss into to glue and let it cool. Then, wrap the heart with the embroidery floss.
7. You can add a little extra hot glue, every once in a while, just to keep it all in place.
8. Once wrapped, You can add hot glue and other glue. The hot glue will hold the letters and the hearts in place, while the other glue dries.
Once it all dries, you have a great sign for Valentine’s Day!
