Valentine Subway Art {Free Printable}

4 Flares 4 Flares ×
For the longest time, the walls in my living room were pretty bare and I just kept drawing a blank as to what to do with them. Over Christmas break, my husband mounted our tv which got me in the mood to start decorating. Doing that one thing really made a bit difference in our living room. We bought a media console to go under it and our living room was finally starting to come together and I knew that I had found a home for some Valentine subway art to display.
On Thanksgiving I had asked my dad to build me a mantle shelf for the wall opposite the tv. I know that it was easy enough to do ourselves but knew that we wouldn’t have the time before Christmas to do it and well……….I kind of wanted it like yesterday so my dad came to the rescue. “While you’re at it………….could you bring me an old window if you happen to have one?” (which I knew he did! He built my mom a greenhouse with a bunch of old windows he collected and I knew he had to have a few kicking around. I was right!)
Here’s what I got Christmas Eve (I was like a little kid on Christmas morning!)

The candle sticks I picked up at Burlington for $9.99 (total bargain). Finally a place to decorate for the holidays (yeah!!!!!!!!!!!) and for everyday stuff as well. I decided to do a little something for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t spend any money to do this. I just did a little shopping around the house and in the basement.

The text on the Valentine subway art is from 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter. I love this because I can keep it up throughout the year because God’s Word is for everyday, not just for holidays. I had the frame downstairs and I had that bouquet of red roses in the basement also. That thing is so old! lol But I’m glad I held onto it all this time.

And how about another view….

{i since removed the “laugh” sign after looking at these pictures but I’m loving the look of this shelf.}
I’m sharing this “Love” printable with you so all you have to do is right click on the subway art below and “save as”. It will print on regular 8.5×11 paper.

UPDATE: A few of you had trouble when printing. I’m not sure why but I’ve added 2 links for you to use instead of doing “save as”. If you had trouble with the original file, but had success with either the download files below, please let me know which worked for you. Thank you!!

    Thank you so much for this. I love your choice of verse and the “art” of fonts you used. I usually make my own subway art; but I found this one to be so beautiful I had to use it instead. Thanks again, I’m sure it will be well enjoyed in my home for many years to come.

    I love this, but mine is coming out blurry too and I did exactly as you said. :-( So bummed. I do this kind of stuff often too, so I know I’m doing it right. So bummed I cannot use it!

    Thank you so much! I have a frame I found at a thrift store all painted white just waiting for this cute printable! It is so kind of you to share your talents!

    I LOVE this printable. Is it possible for me to buy a copy from you in a different color. I want to be able to leave it up year round, however, the red font does not go with any of the decor in my house. I would be willing to pay you for your services. Thanks.

    Wanted to thank you for a printable based on scripture. As you stated, something like this is ALWAYS appropriate. I clicked on quiet a few Valentine;s Day printable before I came to yours. So glad I waited on printing one because yours is great. Thanks SO much for sharing.

    I LOVE this, so perfect and eye catching, and such an important thing to keep on your mind daily….I would love to put this in my Master bedroom as a permanent decor item…is there any chance you’d be willing/able to change up the colors for me at all? Thanks for sharing this free, first time on your site and love it!

    Thank you so much for this lovely printable! I printed out two copies and framed one, then decoupaged the second onto a vase. We’re using it as a “kindness” activity to help teach the kids how to be generous with each other. You can see it on my blog–

    It wouldn’t have been possible without your kindness in offering this printable. Thank you again!

    I would love to have this in my new bathroom but wanted the red words to be in a a blue-green shade. Any idea how I could change it. I love the fonts you chose. So pretty

    This is beautiful! I am a digital scrapbooker, and I LOVE the font that the word “LOVE” is written in. Would you mind telling me what font that is? I am definitely printing this out and displaying it in my home….all year round! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Diana, Thanks so very much for the printable! I shared it on FB and just printed it out myself for my V-day mantle. The verse was the same one that the hubbs and I studied during premarital counseling, then our pastor gave a message based on it at our wedding so it’s always been our “wedding verse”. I was wondering if you would change the red to hot pink so I could hang it in our pink and black wedding-themed bedroom. I would be so very grateful. I’d even be willing to offer you a free spot in my sidebar for the month of February… let me know!

      Hey Heather! Unfortunately I can’t change the colors. My original design is on a thumb drive “somewhere” in my house and without it, I can’t change the colors. I apologize. :(

    LOVE THIS!!! But how can I save this to print at a color printer? it doesn’t give me the option to save, just print??? Thank you :)

      Once you click download, it will open up in a PDF reader (Adobe or Foxit – whatever one you have installed). From there you can click the download button which should allow you to save it. :)
