It’s been a LONG time since I whipped up something to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I’ve created these salvaged junk hearts awhile back, but I was overdue on something new… something rustic.
My decorating style is pretty neutral and rustic, so I desired to make a project that chimed in with that so I’d be inclined to keep it around for after Valentine’s Day.
I wanted something fast and easy… and that’s when it hit me. How about if I allowed a piece of rope to do all the talking?
Grabbing a few reclaimed wood fence planks from my stash, here’s how I did it!

How to make a reclaimed wood Love rope sign
1. Roughly sketch your desired LOVE sign on paper.
Be aware of how bendable your chosen twine is.
2. Freehand your design with chalk on your sign boards.
I chose three reclaimed wood boards, and hadn’t even bothered to attach them to each other yet!
But you could mount them together prior to this step, with two attached support boards underneath.
3. Apply hot glue along your chalk line, then follow along with one long piece of twine.
I don’t have a ton of spare wall space (read that as none) in my home, so I decided to…
The 3 sign boards were first affixed to each other via two side planks, as shown.
I also ought to challenge myself at the 11th hour more often…
