Love is in the air! I decorate with clusters of seasonal vignettes throughout my home, so when I spied this cute wooden truck, I had to have it for a Valentine display.
I purchased this pre-cut wooden truck shape from Dollar General:
Next, I traced the various sections of the image (hearts, truck) onto patterned paper and trimmed out. I used tacky glue when attaching the paper to the wood.
After die-cutting the wheels from grey cardstock, I accented the centers with a smaller circle and enamel dot. For the hub-cabs, I cut one circle from a 6X6 paper and then cut in half. I used foam adhesive to attach the hub-cubs over the tires. Next, I finished off the bottom of the truck with a scalloped sticker strip for the "step rail" :)
The truck also came with a wooden easel so that it could stand. I simply cut patterned paper strips to cover the top and small strips of green cardstock for the edges. For the grass I used another strip of green cardstock and cut into it randomly, creating a fringed look. Next, I glued the strip of grass into the groove on top of the easel and then glued the truck in behind.
Finally, I used various stickers, die-cuts, doodle pops and sprinkle shapes to decorate!
I can't wait to find the perfect spot for my "lovely" truck! With so many wooden shapes available, I hope that you're able to find something similar to decorate...so much fun!
