I got this idea off of Pinterest (as usual), and it's really cute and inexpensive!
I found some cute patterns on google and pinterest, and took them into my school print services to get them printed on a laser colour printer.
I bought the letters at the dollar store, they came in a box and already spelled love.
I used the glue stick to apply a thin layer of glue to the letters and then placed them on the back of the patterned print out and smoothed them out, and let them dry.
I wanted the sides to be left the painted wood colour, so i cut around the letter with an X-Acto knife.
Next, I painted over the pattern with mod podge to give it a glossy and protective finish.
I let them dry, and then I hung them up with the 3M Command Strips.
