Love Grows Wild Sign

Love Grows Wild Sign

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this sign. No joke I would have it up all year round. One thing that I love so much about this decor from my Valentine party is that it can be used for different events like a garden party, wedding, and list goes on and on. I thought of the idea of having a focal point and a theme of the party in one would be fun and this sign is what I came up with. I wanted the sign to have great texture and I think I was able to accomplish that.

To start the base of the board is just a piece of plywood that I had the guys at Home Depot cut down to a 4 x 6 feet sheet and then I painted it solid black so that the words would really pop.

The L-O-V-E letters are from the very talented Heidi Swapp. The letters are from Michaels. They were $12.99 each and they are 100% perfection! Each letter is individual lit by its own set of battery powered lights. I simply sprayed the letters with Krylon Gloss Watermelon spray paint.

Grows Letters

To do the G-R-O-W-S letters I purchased the wooden letters at Joann’s. I used the Krylon Spray Paint in this green color and then I used the 3M Spray Adhesive and I added moss onto the letters. I used two different kinds of moss only because that is what I had. Each letter used a bag of moss that I got from Micheals. These letters were very easy to do. They only took about 15-20 total to do.

The W-I-L-D letters were the hardest part about this sign. It’s not like they were hard but they were more time consuming. First, I started with the cardboard letters from Micheals. I used an knife to cut of the top of the letter. By the end I realized that you can just peel back the top of the letter and it comes right off.

Then, I added the floral foam into the letter to prepare for the flowers. I used scissors to cut the foam to fit into the letter.  Wild letter 2

In order for these letters to look really good and full you first start with the greenery. Place the greenery around the perimeter of the letter and a few in the center to make sure it all blends together Wild Letter 3

I then added moss onto the letter so it would fill in the gaps by gluing the moss on. After the moss placed the flowers on the letter. I finished the letters with the tall sprouted floral stems. I like the sprouted ones because they add a touch of whimy. wild letter 6

To attach the letters onto the wood I used a nail to hang the LOVE letter on. The GROWS letters I had to use finish nailer and compressor to nail on those letters and then to attach the WILD letters I used the 3M mounting tape.

This sign turned out great. I love it. It was easy to do. I love that the sign is such a great focal point and everyone loved the sign.

    Hi. I love the idea! Did you spray over the bulbs or cover them before spraying the lights? I want to spray mine but I don’t want to ruin the lights.
    Thanks!
