14 Ways- Day Twelve: Garage Door Love Note

Welcome home banners on garages are nothing new...but when was the last time you expressed your love via a garage door?? Little E and I decided to try it today by making a giant heart and securing it to our garage door.

My hubby said driving home and seeing that heart made his day. Out of everything I've done since the first day of 14 Ways to Say "I Love You", this was his favorite. Who would've thunk??

Want to make one of your own?

Unroll a large piece of wrapping paper. Fold the paper in half and cut out a heart- just as you would have done in grade school. Trace the words on the paper to determine appropriate spacing.

Darken the words with permanent marker. It doesn't have to be perfect, from the street it will look great, no matter what :)

Attach the heart to your garage door. I used 3M mounting tape.

If your heart covers one of the garage door's seams, cut across the heart where the door will open.

Mine turned out a little ragged, but you get the idea. I even cut off a little extra on each side so the heart wouldn't get caught on the door's way up.

Voila! A simple, yet effective way to show your love.


  1. It's the simple ideas that are often the most meaningful. You don't have to spend money on expensive flowers, chocolates, jewelry and other things to make a huge impact and get a reaction that will turn into a long-time memory. Well done!

  2. So cute! Absolutely doing this with my boys on Tuesday! Lots of fun ideas you've had! Have an awesome Sunday :)

  3. A couple months ago my husband tore down an ugly "shed" that was built onto the front of the detached garage. It provided great storage but wasn't pretty to look at. garage door torrance ca
