These love letters are a little different.
I have made "junky" love before, but this time I did each letter on a separate board.
This makes it more versatile as it can be displayed in many different ways.
You could also hang it with all of the letters or boards touching or in a random pattern too, but I had enough holes in my wall so I didn't show that ;).
After cutting four pieces of wood scraps into my loose interpretation of square, I painted them blue. (If you haven't noticed, I don't really do traditional Valentine's red and white.)
I sanded around the edges and used a mixture of dark and clear wax (Annie Sloan) to darken them a bit.
The L is a door plate and a deadbolt lock slide.
The O is a heart pan. I tried to rust it with salt, vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide, but it wouldn't rust. So I used the paint rust method I shared HERE. It got a little too "rusty" so I added some Old Ochre Annie Sloan Chalkpaint over the top.
The V is made from two knives--these were a bear to drill through, broke three drill bits in the process. I glued the tops of the knives, after getting one screw through the bottom.
The E is a cut spindle I found in the garage and 3 clothespins.
I have to admit, although I still love a sweet card my husband, these LOVE letters are more my style these days.
