Valentine's Love Pallet and a Wreath

 I had some pallet wood in my garage that I had gathered with a friend awhile back and thought it would be perfect for this LOVE pallet art board.  So another friend and me got together and made these one morning.  I used 8 pallet boards to make it.  7 on the front and then I took the last board and cut it in half for the backing.  It is just screwed together with 18, 1 1/4" wood screws.  The finished size of the board is about 24x30.  The letters are just thin wood letters from Hobby Lobby.  I painted all of them red, then on the O, mod podged scrapbook paper on it.  You can't really tell in the photo but it is just white with red polkadots.  I had found some really tiny burlap pennants at Hobby Lobby also.  I cut little hearts out of vinyl and stuck them down on the pennants.  Then I painted red over the top of the entire pennant including the vinyl.  Then I pulled the vinyl off, so that the hearts are just the natural burlap under them.  I then found some thin jute rope and with a needle sewed the pennants onto the rope.  Then I taped it across the O.  Without the pennants, the O was just sort of getting lost on the board.
I also found this cute wreath for 50% off at Kohls this week.  They took wood shavings and made flowers out of them.  I just bought some extra pennants and put that across the top.  I'm kind of excited to change it out for Easter too, not sure what I'll put on there yet, but I'll figure something out.
