These rustic salvaged junk hearts are the perfect example. It’s a unique way to gift a fun valentine that someone can actually keep out and enjoy year around!

Since my decorating style is pretty neutral and rustic, this round I desired to make a project that not only chimed in with my style, it could also be easily adapted to create any Valentines Day sayings you desire…
Grabbing a few reclaimed wood fence planks from my stash and a little bit of thinner rope, here’s what I did!
Create easy easy valentine’s day sayings like this love rope sign
Supplies you’ll need:
heavy twine – identical to what I used!
cordless drill – my fav kind
Sketch out your word
1. Roughly sketch a cute sayings on paper first in a writing script that continues without breaks.
I chose to sketch the word Love ending with a heart in a continuous motion that is possible by bending rope only (no sharp corners) however you can also cut the rope as you move along as well. So really, any word or anything is possible.
Some other Valentine’s Day sayings to consider:
- Boyfriend or Girlfriend
- So Much Love
- Love you more
- I love you
- Be mine
- I’m yours
- Yours forever
- a short valentine’s quote
- unique valentine’s day puns
2. Write your saying in chalk on your chosen platform.
For my base, I chose three loose reclaimed wood planks that hadn’t even been attached to each other yet. However you can attach them with two smaller support boards on both sides from on top or underneath.
Attaching the rope with hot glue
3. Apply hot glue along the chalk line, then place your twine along the glue line to create your word.
Because the hot glue cools nearly instantly, laying glue down a few inches at a time, then quickly pressing the rope down against it works well.
Ending the word with a heart shape
My Love word ended with a big ‘ol twisty heart to further tell the story as an added treat!
And since I don’t have a ton of spare wall space (read that as none) in my home, here’s where I put the Love sign!
Mounting the Valentine’s Day sign
The 3 reclaimed wood planks were joined together by screwing on two support boards on each side on the top. This created a natural border adding more detail which I loved!
Isn’t it sweet? It sure makes a nice way to celebrate a special person in your life!
One could also add some further details such as:
Other ideas to add to your Valentine’s Day sayings:
- Hang a new or past Valentine’s day cards on the sign
- Attach small bags of Valentine’s day candy or a little chocolate treat or 3 to the sign
- Add rustic black hooks to hang anything desired
- Attach funny Valentine’s Day quotes you can have your loved one read
- Include some movie tickets or a dinner out option
Trace this image
Here’s a straight on shot so you have the ability to better trace the Love sign I made. Or perhaps this inspiration will help you create your own look!
I LOVE it! 🙂
Another way to use this idea would be to use thin string to create greetings on Valentine’s Day cards or gift tags. This would also make a fun homemade Valentine’s Day card made by a kid (with hot glue guidance of course)
Now just add a fun movie and a few chocolates and that’s a Happy Valentines’ Day that works for me this fine February!
What Happy Valentine’s Day message would you use for your rope, twine or string sign?
