Last year I wrote about HEart by CC’s DIY heart kit that I made for my craft room, and I liked it so much that I bought another one to decorate for Valentine’s Day! This time I used some scrapbook paper and mod podge and I love how it turned out!
This time I did a “distressed” gray paint, and it’s really easy to accomplish this look with only a little gray paint and then adding a little white in the second coat.
After the first coat dried, I added some white paint and then did another light coat.
After it dried I gave it a very, very light sand.
Then I painted the ends of the heart strips with the gray.
And grabbed a few papers in my scrapbook bin. I’ve been trying to use up what I have around the house before going shopping (one of my 2017 goals)!
I used my paper cutter to measure and cut, and then used a good amount of mod podge (it’s hard to use too much) to wrap around the wood and make sure it would stick without any bubbles.
I wrapped it all the way around and then used hot glue to secure it to the board. I would have used wood glue if I was gluing the wood, but since I was glueing scrapbook paper, hot glue was fine. I started with the middle piece to make sure the rest of the pieces would be even.
It’s a great 30 minute project during nap time or whenever you can squeeze it in!
And it’s now adding some nice Valentine’s Day flair to our industrial pipe shelves in the living room.
And here is a sneak peek of another easy DIY project that I will be posting soon!
