Happy Galentine’s Day!
You may have seen me make this last love themed project on my Instagram stories over the weekend. I picked up the heart for $3 from Target’s dollar spot and thought it’d be a fun project to flip. They have the best blank to create cute projects for really low prices.

Heart Sign Makeover
What you’ll need:
- Heart sign from Target
- White spray paint
- Various colors of card stock
- Various colors of crepe paper
- Cricut Maker
- Rotary blade
- Hot glue gun
- Gold vinyl
- Weeder tool
- Transfer paper
I liked the ombre look of the heart sign, but am not really a pink or red girl, so was first thinking that I’d do a blue or purple version. Obviously I ended up changing my mind, but regardless I needed to start with a blank slate – a white blank slate.
Spray paint the sign with white spray paint. It took me 2 coats for the top and sides to be completely covered.
While the last coat of paint is drying, you can start working on the flowers. I bought a pack of Lia Griffith’s crepe paper last year and hadn’t used it yet so decided this was the perfect time to make some crepe paper flowers!
I used the anemone pattern from her Cutting Machine Crafts with Your Cricut, Sizzix, or Silhouette book and cut 2 large anemones and 2 leaves in crepe paper using the Maker and rotary blade. I wanted the middles to be gray, so cut those in card stock since I didn’t have that color crepe paper.
I cut 6 more flowers out of card stock using the poppy template (#MA3E13) in Design Space.
When all the separate pieces are cut, assemble them using hot glue and curling the edges of the paper.
I fell in love with the crepe paper anemones when they were assembled. they’re so light & delicate, just like real petals.
Lay the flowers out on the heart sign how you like and then glue them down.
If you want to add a little something extra, cut out the word “love” from golf vinyl and apply it in the remaining white area. Finally, tie some twine or ribbon through the holes so it can hang again – then display it!
