This simple Anniversary Decor will be an added treasure to your home for years and it’s simple and inexpensive to make.
Start with 2 2x4s, one cut 20″ and the other to 16″.
Cut a 45 degree angle on one end of each 2×4.
Put the 2x4s together with the flat ends level and draw a heart with the top of the heart about 4″ below the top of the shorter board.
Cut out the heart. I used a hole saw and a drill press to make the round part of the heart at the top and a saw to make the straight part of the heart up to the circle. You could also use a scroll or band saw to cut out the heart.
I then drilled 2 holes on the inside of each 2×4 lined up with the other and glued dowel rods in them to hold the 2x4s together.
Cut a 10″x10″x1″ board and attached the 2x4s to the center of the board by using wood screws from the bottom.
I then placed my initial “H” on the longer 2×4 and my wife’s initial “M” on the shorter 2×4 using paint. However, a wood burner used to do the lettering would look very good on this as well.
I proceeded to add our wedding day to the boards as well “Est. November 28, 1992” which not only provides a treasured memory to our living room but also insures that I don’t ever forget the date (your welcome men).
