Wooden Love Notes DIY

Remember as a child, playing M.A.S.H. or passing love notes to your crush in class. Nowadays, love notes are a thing of the past thanks to social media. There was something about getting a sweet note from a boy that just adored you and sending one back.

I wanted to bring a little bit of that childhood feeling of love notes to my Valentine’s decorations and so I came up with these adorable Wooden Love Notes.

Here’s how you can make your own love notes to keep or give to a neighbor, friend or teacher to brighten their day.


  • Scrap MDF wood – or you can purchase small pieces of wood from Holly Lobby and Michaels.
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Modge Podge
  • Paint marker
  • Heart embellishment

First, you’re going to want to trace your scrap wood onto scrapbook paper, cut it out, and modge podge it to the top.

After it’s modge podged and dry, you can take a fine grit sandpaper and knock off the edges of the paper if there is any overhand and create dimension on the edges. I like to sand it down enough so you can see the white and it creates the sense of a border on the wood.

Then you’re going to take your paint maker and make tick marks around the edges and from two corners to the middle creating the look of an envelope.

You can see in this pic where I marked the middle so I knew where to stop with my diagonal lines.

Next, you’re going to take whatever heart embellishment you have and hot glue it to the center of the fold lines you created. I had some wooden hearts but you can do to any store around Valentine’s day and find almost anything that would work. You could use “lips”, a “cupid”, anything that resembles Valentine’s Day.

Now you have the cutest Wooden Love Notes to display or give.

Aren’t they the cutest? Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day as much as me or would you like to pass the Hallmark holiday all-together?
