I'm so excited to be decorating for Valentine's Day. Wood Creations has the cutest Valentines crafts available right now. I had a hard time choosing one to work on. I finally decided on the Sweet Hearts Set, and I "love" how it turned out!!
Once you've sanded the letters/shapes, it's time to paint! I used DecoArt Americana Acrylic paints in Brilliant Red, Bahama Blue, and Peony Pink. Each letter and the heart shapes got two coats each, and the block got three coats. Let the paint dry completely between coats.
Once the paint is dry, apply the "Hearts" vinyl that comes included in the kit. Place the vinyl closer to the left side of the block so you will have room to glue the wood hearts on the right side later. Set the block aside.
When the paint on the letters is dry, get out your Mod Podge and glitter. Work one letter at a time, and paint the Mod Podge on kind of thick with a sponge brush.
I used the Recollections glitter in Cherry, Taffy, and Gold. I really love the Recollections glitter because the lid comes off - which makes putting the extra glitter back a snap! The texture is also perfect for these kinds of projects.
Lay the letter on a scrap piece of paper, and pour your glitter over the letter. Make sure all the Mod Podge is covered. Let sit for a few minutes. If you're feeling multi-functional, work on multiple letters/papers at a time.
Carefully stand the letter up over the paper, and tap off any excess glitter. Bend the paper slightly in half and pour the extra glitter back into the container. You could also use a small funnel if you want to make less of a mess.
Once all the letters and hearts are all covered in glitter (yay!!), glue the small heart onto the large heart. Once dry, glue the hearts onto the block. Let dry completely before moving. If you attach with hot glue, it should set pretty quick. If you use something like E6000, let it dry overnight.
Spray the entire set with clear spray paint to help keep the glitter in place. Place the set on a mantel or shelf, and get ready for Valentine's Day!! These are fun to make on your own, or visit Wood Creations and make it a girl's craft night!!
