How to Make a Dollar Tree Valentines Truck Craft
I shared this Valentine’s day craft on a Facebook Live which you can watch here or if you prefer the photo tutorial, continue reading below.
Start by applying a thin layer of Vaseline on different areas of the sign to give it a distressed.
Apply a coat of white chalky paint over the entire wood sign.
Take a paper towel or clean cloth and start wiping off the spots where the Vaseline was used.
Mix a bit of brown paint and water to create a stain and paint the edges of the sign.
Next, paint the wood truck cut out and let dry.
Paint your wooden hearts and sprinkle red glitter over top.
Attach the wooden truck onto the sign with hot glue. Add the wooden hearts to look like they’re coming out of the back of the truck.
Add any embellishments.
And your Valentine’s sign is ready to be displayed!
