Ridiculously Easy Valentine’s Day DIY

I don’t actually do a whole lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day (probably because the extent of our celebrating is usually a pizza on the couch after one of our kid’s sporting events — so romantic, right?!)  However, this year, I decided to add a couple of love-themed touches to the floating shelves in our kitchen.  And the best part?  I didn’t spend even one single penny on them!


  • Framed print
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Painter’s tape
  • Chalk pen


To start, turn over the framed print you’ll be using, and tape the edges so that you protect the frame from the paint.  Next, apply chalkboard paint to the background of the print.  Allow that to dry, and then remove the tape.

Lastly, draw a heart, x’s and o’s, or whatever “L-O-V-E” design you prefer with the chalk marker.  (You could also use a stencil if you don’t want to freehand it.  I tried doing that, but the chalk pen bled through the stencil, and I ended up just freehanding it.)

You could easily do this project for all the seasons and holidays.  I mean, pretty much nothing beats FREE home decor, right??!!
