It’s Valentine season, what does that mean…. new craft projects to work on for the house. With any new season I LOVE working on new projects. So of course I was eager to get started on Valentines. While browsing the Darice site for Valentine’s decor ideas, I came upon this heart set that I was immediately drawn to.
I wanted to create something a little different then I usually do on my blog. I’ve never attempted a color block project before so I really wanted to give that a try for this project. I think this laser cut heart is the perfect opportunity to try it. So let’s get started!
- Darice Unfinished Wood Heart
- Darice Wood Shadow Box
- Darice Washi Tape
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Darice Paint Brush
Before I got started, I made sure to decide how I wanted to create my lines. Then I got started painting away. Let each side dry fully before applying your next coat of paint. I did a total of two coats of paint for each section.
Step 3. For this next step I really wanted to frame in the heart and use the solid heart for another project. So I set out to create kind of a modern farmhouse style heart frame. I went through my paint stash and found another Valentine-y color to match my color scheme.
I love this shadow box, I’ve used it for so many projects. All I had to do was paint the entire frame white, and once the paint dried I added my color border. Boom done!
As always thanks for stopping by. For more Valentine’s decor ideas, check out this link to a similar Valentine project I made a couple years ago.
