This a quick, easy, and fun way to add a little Valentine love to to your home. ❤️ It would be great to add to your Valentine mantel along with these cute mason jars that I made last year. You can find all the info on the Vintage-Look Valentine Treat Jars in this post.

To make your own Feb 14 Canvas, here’s what you’ll need…
- an 8 by 10 inch stretched canvas (I found mine at Dollar Tree)
- an unfinished wood “1” and “4” (mine came from Hobby Lobby for $1.49 each and measure about 5-3/4 inches tall)
- scrapbook paper in your favorite pattern along with a coordinating solid color
- red acrylic paint (this is a great assortment of colors)
- mod podge
- foam brushes
- E6000 clear adhesive
- your favorite alphabet stamps to stamp “feb” OR small wood letters
- foam tape
First paint your numbers (and small letters if you are using them) with red paint using a foam brush. I painted 2 coats, letting it dry between coats – no need to paint the backs since you will be glueing them down.
Trim your patterned paper to 8 by 10 inches. Using a foam brush, spread a thin coat of mod podge over the entire surface of the canvas. Place your trimmed scrapbook paper onto the canvas, smoothing out any air bubbles and making sure that the edges are glued down well.
Stamp “feb” with red ink onto your solid color paper – I used kraft card stock. I die cut my card stock with a label die (this is a similar set) and inked the edges with red ink. These finger sponge daubers are great for inking the edges. I attached the piece to the canvas using foam tape.
Glue “14” onto the canvas using E6000 adhesive – I love this adhesive for attaching heavier items when I’m crafting. If you are using wood letters to spell out “feb”, attach them to your solid card stock (after you have die cut it and inked the edges) using the E6000 adhesive. Then attach the piece to the canvas using foam tape.
I love the way this turned out! It’s so easy to make and the “14” just pops off the canvas.
You can also make this in pale pinks and white – I think that would be so pretty! Embossed scrapbook paper would be great to add even more texture to your canvas. What will you do when you make your Feb 14 canvas?
Happy Crafting! ❤️❤️❤️
