Happy Valentine’s Day Reverse Block Decor

Happy Valentines Day sign that is reversible and says happy birthday. A perfect way to make the most of craft project.

Hi guys! It’s Melanie from Find it, Make it, Love it. If you’ve followed Steffany and I very much you may have noticed we LOVE dual purpose holiday decorations. Like THIS ‘Trick or Treat’ sign that says ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ on the back (see HERE.) We’ve done that with quite a few projects and today we’re doing it again! I happen to have a lot of birthdays in my family in December and January, so we decided to do this ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ reversible sign that says ‘Happy Birthday’ on the other side. Reversible Happy Birthday Sign, it says Happy Valentine's day on the other side. A perfect way to make the most of a craft project!

Pretty cute, right? Of course, you could have it say whatever you wan……..we’re just getting your wheels turning.;)

Here’s what you need from the Wood Connection to make one too:

  • This ‘Happy’ block set
  • Wood stain (we used the Minwax water based in dark Walnut)
  • White paint
  • Red paint (we used Tompte red)
  • Valentine’s day vinyl
  • 2 foam brushes

Other supplies you’ll need:

  • A pencil with eraser
  • Craft letters or stickers
  • Sanding block

Original wood from the Wood connection that can be used to say Happy....anything!

Start by staining all the letters and the block.

Once the stain is dry, paint over just the front of the letters and block with white.

Technique to get a weathered, white washed look. Stain the wood, the lightly paint with white.

We love the look of the stain on the sides of the letters and block with just the fronts painted. It’s a rustic, 3D look that is beautiful!

For the Valentine side, paint one side of the block red (the other side should be white.)

Of course, you can be done now and have an adorable Happy Valentine’s Day sign, but like we said, we love reversible decor.

So now we’ll share the Birthday side! It’s so easy, just turn the block over to the white side and add letters, stickers or vinyl to spell BIRTHDAY. We had this pad of alphabet letters that we think worked perfect for a colorful and playful look. We glued them on with a good old glue stick! Cute! Since I’ll get this out birthday after birthday and for Valentine’s Day, we will probably seal it with some matte mod podge or even a spray sealer; but that’s totally up to you!
