X & O Valentine's Day Greeting


I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day, but I do like to create a few little things that can easily be changed out to suit any occasion or holiday.

Valentine's Day Greeting made with vintage bits and pieces
 This year I came up with a quick and easy magnetic chalkboard sign made from bits and pieces of old stuff.



create chalkboards with vintage tart pans
This is what I started with. I'm not sure what the rusty old thing with the metal rod was originally used for, but it sure makes an interesting base!  I made the chalkboards from some old tart tins a few months ago.

use magnets to attach metal parts
The secret ingredient that holds everything together is this tiny little magnet. I love these things! You can find them right here: Super Strong 10mm Magnets (*Amazon affilliate)

X & O magnetic letters on a chalkboard
The rusty X & O letters are also attached with tiny magnets. Pop 'em on and pop 'em off!

Valentine's Day greeting made from vintage components
For a touch of color and contrast, I added some greenery in a piece of cranberry glass that once belonged to my grandmother. A small flower frog in the center holds the sweet vintage card in place.

Here's another version using the smaller tart pan with a rhinestone heart embellishment. Gotta love those tiny magnets!  So simple to change out for any occasion.
