Materials Needed

1. Plate for paint

2. Paint (Valentine’s day Colors) I use Acrylic Craft paint. I used pink, red, white, and hot pink.

3. Wooden Mini Rolling Pins

4. Paint brush

5. Valentine’s Day Ribbon

6. Glue and a glue gun

7. Scissors

8. If you are using a Cricut or Silhouette you will need contact paper and white premium vinyl and red premium vinyl.

9. If not using a Cricut or Silhouette then you might want to check your local craft shop for some small stencils to use to write your words or if you are feeling daring you can write them as well.

10. Regular Modge podge.

Step by Step Procedures

  1. Get all materials ready.
  2. Layout paper if you are worried about making a mess.

Step 3:

Paint each rolling pin just in the center. Take your time on this part and then lay it on the ends so it can dry.

Step 4: Download The Skinny font by Jusebox FREE from Dafont

Step 5: Install Font and Design in Design space or computer program affialiated with your cutting machine.

Step 6: I did my words at 0.75″ just to be safe, but you could try 1″

Step 7:

Cut out and weed Premium Vinyl letters. I use contact paper from the kitchen section of Walmart. I have literally had that same role for 2 years and it works much better than the Cricut brand (sorry not sorry). Use your credit card tool then peel off and apply to your Rolling pin. Either side will work!

Step 8: Apply a coat of Mod Podge. You technically don’t have to, but I always like to be safe when putting vinyl on wood.

Step 9: Attach Ribbon to each rolling pin by looping it either on the end or around the colored portion. Secure with a dab of hot glue if needed.

Side Note: I let the rolling pins dry in between each step.
