Valentines, morse code, wood slices, a free printable…

and a story of love.

Other than elementary school days, Valentines is rarely thought about at our house.  We try to celebrate our love daily.

There is an obsession with morse code for me and here’s why…

Morse Code Obsession

my dad!

My dad loved science, electricity, mathematics, and the military.  When I was in 3rd grade we made a Morse code telegraphy. We sent messages from the dining room to dad’s chair in the living room.  Actually, dad sent most of the messages that I would translate.  I had a tricky trigger finger.

Today I’m translating my morse code obsession into a wood slice DIY sign.  Plus I made a free Morse code and phonetic alphabet printable.

Glue the burlap to the cardboard backing of the frame.  While the glue dries, arrange your wood slices.  Next, add the backing into the frame.  My frame had clips to hold the back in place.  If yours doesn’t, glue in place with hot glue.  Then start drawing or writing on the wood slices using the permanent marker.

I used other patterns to fill in the blank wood slices around my morse code saying.  Remember your’s can be all drawn images or lettering and saying of your choice.

To finish, just hot glue the slices in place.  Hang or lean on a shelf or mantel.
