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 much fun!
