I Heart U Valentine Home Decor
January 30, 2023
Hello Crafty Friends!
Dana here! Hope the New Year is treating you well so far. Valentines Day isn't far away, but there's plenty of time to get started on those projects. Today's project will feature Clear Scraps Wood Deco 3 pack, Click here Wood Shiplap Small square Click here and mini shaker Double Hearts! Click here We'll be creating a cutesy Valentine's day project I hope you'll like.
To begin our project, remove your Shiplap Small square from your package. Taking some Folkart Matte White Wicker acrylic paint and a paintbrush, apply the paint over the surface including the sides. Set aside to dry.
Take out your mini shaker pieces. And trace the bottom piece onto any Valentines Day paper collection you prefer. I'm using an older paper collection from Crate Paper "Main Squeeze." Cut out and glue your paper down onto your bottom shaker piece. Taking an xaco knife, trim away any excess paper. Smooth any rough edges using a Distress tool or sanding tool. Next take your top shaker piece, and cover with patterned paper, glitter, paint or any craft medium you prefer. I chose to trace my double hearts top shaker piece onto this pink/white hearts paper from this collection. I traced, cut out and glued in place. Trim and Distress as we did in the previous step.
Then glue the next 2 chipboard pieces onto your bottom piece, using Beacon glue. Add any shaker filler you prefer, sequins, hearts, beads. I'm using Clear Scraps Sprinkles Hearts Confetti filler Click here
Then taking your acrylic shaker piece peel off the protective film from both sides before adhering in place. Glue your top piece in place. Set aside to dry throughly before shaking!
Next up using scrap papers from this collection, I cut 4 strips of coordinating papers measuring 4x7/8 inches. I inked my paper strips using Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. Then glue each strip onto each section of your Shiplap Small square surface.
Taking another coordinating paper (I used red/white polka dot paper) I repeated the same steps to cover the front surface of my Wood Deco Shape.
Now we ready to start decorating our home decor piece! I like to use a variety of different embellishments including chipboard stickers, ephemera, etc...I also arrange and figure out where I want to adhere my embellishments before adhering them. I also took some pipecleaners, 3 red and 3 white. I twisted one red and white pipecleaners together and then using Hot glue adhered around the edge of my Wood Deco Shape.
I glued my shaker towards the upper left corner. I added a chipboard sentiment piece along the top of my shaker. On the bottom using foam dots, I adhered this "Love You" badge sticker. Here's a peek!
I adhered my Shiplap Small square on the right side. I glued a cute pineapple smiley ephemera piece over the top section and a strawberry smiley sticker to the left. I added a chipboard sticker sentiment on the polka dot strip. On the 3rd section, with pop dots I applied another smiley heart and some XO's stickers on the right side.
My bottom strip, I adhered acouple puffy heart stickers. Below my Shiplap shape, using foam dots I adhered a string of sticker hearts! Here's a closeup!
To finish my project, I added a metal hanger on the back side of my Wood Deco Shape. You could add a hanger to the back using ribbon, jute cord or tulle!
