I love celebrating and decorating for Valentine’s Day. I own lots of little wood hearts and scrapbook paper that make the perfect decor for February 14.
Supplies I used:
- Wood Hearts
- Scrapbook Paper
- Wood Burning Tool
- Mod Podge
First, I used one of the wood hearts to trace on the scrapbook paper.
Next, I cut out the paper hearts and adhered them to the wood hearts with Mod Podge.
After the glue dried, I used a wood burning tool on the sides and edges of the hearts.
Finally, I added bow embellishments to some of the hearts.
I love the how pretty the hearts are, and I can’t wait to show them off for Valentine’s Day!
I love doing craft projects with laser-cut wood frames and plaques. I think they are both excellent ways to create unique wall art. On my recent trip to Michaels, I bought this wood plaque and wood letter:
I let the two objects sit on my table for a couple of days because I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them. Then, one day as I was walking around a store, I saw lots of products that were gray and yellow. I loved the way those two colors complimented each other. I immediately went to another craft store and bought yellow acrylic paint and gray chalk paint.
I painted the plaque gray:
and the letter “B” yellow:
I used two coats of paint on each object. I lightly sanded the paint on the plaque with fine grit sandpaper to give the plaque a chalk finish. Then, I hot glued the letter on the plaque and hung the finished project on my wall.
I love doing seasonal craft projects, and this particular idea came to me because I wanted to add some Fall decorations to my living room. I had this wooden tray for a few months, and I wanted to do something unique with it:
I saw several ideas on Pinterest on how to stain wood using coffee grounds and vinegar. All I did was combine 1 tbsp of coffee grounds, 2 cups of white vinegar, and steel wool into a jar and let it sit for about 24 hours. This is a very safe and natural way to add color to wood.
I applied the mixture to the wooden tray using the steel wool.
(This is one coat. Apply extra coats if you want a darker color.)
I let it dry for several hours, then I dusted off the coffee residue. Next, I drew designs on the tray and traced over the designs using a wood burning tool. I also painted and added some wooden knobs onto the bottom of the tray to give it some height.
Here is the finished tray:
I had this wood plaque for a while, and I finally decided a couple of days ago to turn it into a sign for my living room.
I used the following supplies:
- wood plaque
- wood burner
- wood letters
- wood glue
- Jolee’s Boutique embellishments
- Krylon Brushed Metallic Paint
I started off by drawing designs onto the plaque, then tracing the designs with a wood burner.
Next, I spray painted the wood letters and glued them onto the plaque using wood glue.
Finally, I added the decorative embellishments.
Here is the finished sign:
