Valentine Stencils

The first thing you need to create these DIY Valentine project ideas is the I Love You stencil. There are actually 12 different designs that you can use individually or in any combination you like.

Depending on the project you have in mind, you can use the I Love You stencil and pick which type of paint you want to use: Rescue Restore chalk paint, ChalkArt or Gel Ink.

Other stencils that lend themselves to Valentine’s Day projects:

The XOXO stencil

I used the XOXO stencil to make this Valentine wreath, using Gel Ink on tissue paper. You could definitely stencil with Gel Ink on fabric and make a rag wreath.

The Gingham stencil is another great one for Valentine’s projects.

Several of the other stencils have Valentine designs in them, so I would check them all for designs you like.

For writing words, I like the Alphabet 1 and the Alphabet 4 fonts. And don’t forget that you can mix fonts.

Products to Use with Stencils

Rescue Restore paint is permanent on just about any surface. It works on virtually any surface, including wood, glass, resin, melamine, Formica, concrete, iron, stone, and even outdoor furniture and décor. For craft projects, the 2 ounce jar will be sufficient.

Gel Ink is especially good on fabric, upholstery, glass, ceramics and paper and is permanent and washable.

ChalkArt is good on just about any surface, but can be wiped off with a damp cloth if you want to reuse your surface.

NOTE: none of these products have to sealed.

Ideas for Using Valentine Stencils

One of the easiest projects is to use either Rescue Restore paint or ChalkArt on a piece of rustic wood.

Boards that are available at your craft stores are great for Valentine projects.

See how easy it is to mix different stencils for Valentine’s projects? This is the Gingham stencil used as a background. Then a piece of adhesive vinyl was cut in a decorative shape over the background and stenciled.

Any of the products can be used on vinyl, paper, wood, glass or plastic. These plain plastic placemats came from Dollar Tree.

DIY Valentine Project Ideas Using Fabric

Use Gel Ink on fabric, such as a dishtowel. This Valentine project used the French Script stencil overlaid with one of the I Love You stencil designs.
