Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I like to put a few things scattered around to brighten things up during the (sometimes) long, cold days of Winter. I’m in Alabama so we don’t experience the Winter like so many of you in other areas do! But the days can be dreary and rainy so it’s nice to add a little love around the house. ❤️

I made this Farmhouse Valentine Canvas using an 8 by 10 inch stretched canvas (like these). You’ll also need 20 split natural wood balls (I found mine here), buffalo plaid fabric, and ribbon for the bow. I found my galvanized metal “love” word at Dollar Tree. It came in a package of 3 different words – you may also be able to find a metal or chipboard word at your local craft store. Or you can simply leave the word off. 🙂
After that was dry, I laid out my split wood balls in a heart shape on the canvas and then glued them using a white craft glue – I like Crafter’s Pick Ultimate Glue it dries quickly, but not too quickly if you need to adjust the placement of the balls. I attached the word “love” using foam tape to give it a little dimension.
I used several ribbons to make a small bow using this super easy method I found on Re-fabbed and attached it to the upper left corner.
When I was finished, it looked a bit stark to me. It needed a little softening, so I used some white chalky finish paint and lightly dry brushed the wood balls, the word “love”, and around the edges of the canvas.
A simple and fun project to add a little Valentine love to your home! ❤️
