Craft: valentine's day canvas

Valentine's Day? I really need to start decorating. This holiday seemed to just creep up on me. Actually, I don't think I have any Valentine's Day decor. This might be my first.


I did have an idea for an easy, 2 minute project that looks modern and classy. Plus, did I mention it takes 2 minutes? And I already had all of the supplies I needed so it was cheap, too! Can't beat that.
All you need are:
- canvas (I had an 11x14 laying around)
- chipboard letters (mine were pink - - perfect)
- hot glue gun

Just come up with a word that you want to place on your canvas and glue it(or you could tape it to the canvas and use the canvas for other holidays). I glued mine to the bottom right hand corner. And you're done!

I placed mine on the chalkboard canvas that I made. I even scalloped around the edges of the canvas to make it look a little more valentines dayish (don't look too closely at my scallops - - they look like my 2 year old did it).




I'll be posting to the linky parties below.
