Mod Podged {Interchangeable} Striped Plaque

It should come to No surprise to You that I LOVE Stripes.
Especially Black & White ones. 
It is a  dominant design element I use in my home.
&
As a matter of Fact I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to just Stripes!
You can see it in All of it’s Striped Glory HERE.
I was inspired to create a interchangeable Striped Plaque for my front door post
Here is what I came up with:
Again this is another Simple project that I made with items I had laying around my house.
I started with an unfinished 12×12 Plaque that I spray painted Black
&
And unfinished particle board heart  that I spray painted red.
{ it was an item I bought at the craft store last year and never used}
Next up I added the stripes.
Side Note: My original plan was to use some white vinyl but I quickly realized I was all out.
So I resorted to Plan B: Mod Podge.
I simply took a piece of white cardstock and cut {5} strips that measured 1 1/4″ thick
And Mod Podged them right on to my board.
Once the strips were in place I added 2 more coats of Mod Podge to the top
{letting it dry in between coats}
Next to attach the heart, 
I used {2} Command Strips
And applied them to the back of my heart
peeled off the backing, and pressed it onto the center of my board.
This way when Valentines is over, I can pull off the heart
Without damaging my board 
And put something else on it for the next season.
Genius Right?
Then I attached a Big Red Grosgrain Bow
And Hung it up outside on my Post:
Go here to see a Full tutorial on how I made the Post
I L♥VE how it looks on My Front Porch!
Here is Where I am linking up this week!

    I love it but did you make the red bow, something you could change out. It works for Valentine’s, Christmas, 4th of July. However, Easter, St. Patrick’s and whatever else it wouldn’t work for. Just wondering. I am going to try this. I just need a big heart. What is the heart made of? Thanks for sharing.

    Whoops, I just re-read and the heart is particle board, sorry I skipped reading that.

    I am doing a white board and skipping the mod podge and use the tape. Reason is it will just wear down from snow in my area of the country. Can’t wait to do this. What a creative idea.
