I’m so excited to share this DIY Round Valentine’s Day Hanging Sign with you because I honestly feel like it is different than most Valentine’s Day decor crafts.
You see a lot of red, black, white, and pink in Valentine’s Day decor, so the color scheme isn’t what makes it different. To me, it’s the pattern!
You typically see a bunch of glitter and hearts, but how often do you see such a bold pattern on Valentine’s Day decor??

How to Make DIY Round Valentine’s Day Hanging Sign
I started this adorable project by removing the stickers from the back of the Dollar Tree round sign. I like to use my heat gun to soften the glue and use a putty knife to peel up the stickers.
Then, I removed the twine hanger from the round sign as well. Once you’re left with just the round sign, you can get ready to decoupage the napkins onto the surface.
Start by separating the plies from your napkins. You need to do this anytime you are decoupaging napkins to make sure the pattern adheres securely to the surface.
How to decoupage napkins
When you’re decoupaging napkins, because you have to separate the plies, you need to paint your surface white unless it is already white.
Otherwise, the dark color of the surface will show through the thin napkin ply and will darken your pattern. Paint your surface white and allow the paint to dry completely.
Once the paint is dry, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the sign and place the napkins onto the Mod Podge. My sign was larger than one napkin, so I had to piece them together to cover the surface.
Cover the sign with plastic saran wrap and use a rolling pin to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the napkins, then allow the Mod Podge to dry.
Once the Mod Podge is dry, remove the napkin around the edges of the round sign. I like to use sandpaper or a sanding sponge to just tear off the extra napkin.
Decorate your wooden hearts
Next up I worked on the two Dollar Tree wooden hearts. I painted the larger heart with Craftsmart red paint and used my heat gun to quickly dry the paint.
Then, I stained the little wooden heart with Apple Barrel burnt umber acrylic paint. To stain the heart, pour the paint directly onto the wood and use a wet wipe to spread it across the surface.
Let the heart dry completely, then lightly brush white paint across the small heart. Keeping a light hand helps you get a distressed finish.
Bring it all together
Hot glue the Dollar Tree nautical rope around the outer edge of the large red heart. Then, glue the Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower blocks to the back of the red heart.
I cut a small strip from the red and white striped ribbon and used it to hang the smaller heart over the center of the larger heart.
Then, tie a little bow out of the buffalo check ribbon and secure it with a piece of the red and white baker’s twine.
Glue the little bow at the top of the white distressed heart. Then, glue the red heart to the decoupaged circle sign.
I threaded the twine hanger back onto the round sign and tied it in place. Lastly, I glued the nautical rope around the outer edge of the round sign.
