We don't normally decorate much for Valentine's Day. However we couldn't resist making our kissing booth craft after running across a few Peanut's memes with Lucy and Snoopy.
- Chalkboard Tags
- Popsicle Sticks
- Paint (wax if you use chalk paint)
- Marker, Wood Letters or Vinyl
- Hot Glue Gun
We started by painting our crate and popsicle sticks with Tranquil Tide chalk paint from Folk Art. We have always loved this color with red, they accent each other beautifully! After the paint dried, we sanded the edges of our crate to give our piece a worn look. When we had our edges sanded the way we wanted them, we waxed the crate and popsicle sticks with clear wax.
Assembly is super easy. Lay your crate flat and align one popsicle stick on each side and hot glue down. Once the base popsicle sticks are cool, apply the cross sticks. If you are using vinyl, make sure your banner popsicle sticks do not have space between them so your vinyl will adhere properly.
We used vinyl for our wording. We are in love with the Apple Butter font from Design Bundles. Winter Princess would also look great and at the time of this writing is the free font of the week! You can also write your sign by hand or use wooden letters.
With our vinyl applied, we added a couple buffalo check mini bows and a chalk board sign listing the booth fee!
With our décor complete, we filled our crate with some Valentine's Day Hershey's Kisses. If you make one of your own, post your pics! We'd love to see the colors (and candy) you use!
We hope you loved this project as much as we did. Please be sure to like and share us on social media, we appreciate you following us! ~ Rett & Co.
