Dollar Tree – Wooden Valentine’s Love Letter Plaque

Dollar Tree – Wooden Valentine’s Love Letter Plaque

This Dollar tree tutorial is for a chopping board hack. Turn it into a Valentine's wall plaque

What you need

Wooden chopping board
White paint
Sand paper
Wood heart or cardstock
sharpie pens


If you are a romantic at heart then you are going to live this DIY Chopping board hack.

To start with you need to coat your board in white rustic paint. You can apply a shabby finish with two techniques. You can paint it on using a dry brush technique or by sanding white paint back off the board.

There are lots of tutorials for dry brushing but basically it is minimal paint on your brush, take the excess paint off by brushing it onto a cloth and then applying it to the board.  Small light coats to build up to the desired effect.

Once you are happy with the base coat begin the letter writing. You can freehand the design if you like or use rubber stamps to create the postal stamps.

Finish off your design with a love letter title using a sharpie or paint pen.

Finish off by adding the red heart, you can use wood or a cardstock cutout. Wrap the postal string around the whole project and hang on the wall.

These would be lovely to personalise but adding the recipient’s address and name to the front.
