Valentine Large Heart Shiplap Decor
February 14, 2023
Hello crafty friends! Happy Valentines Day! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a fun project I created using the Large Heart Shiplap Shape! I had in mind this will be perfect as a door hanger for future Februarys! The techniques I used are simple and I'm going to share them with you today!
Starting with some red chalk paint, I covered the front of my Heart Shiplap Shape; giving it a few coats. The birch wood accepts the chalk paint nicely and I wanted a bright red result. I did use my sanding tool to around the edges to give it a distressed look.
Next, taking my Beacon-3-in-1 Liquid Adhesive, I affixed patterned paper to the top and bottom of my Heart Shiplap Shape. I cut away any excess paper with my scissors followed by again using my sanding tool.
I set aside my Shiplap to work on my embellishments. Using the Dragonflies Chipboard Embellishment Shapes, I painted each with a light coat of white acrylic paint.
After allowing my paint to dry, I applied embossing ink and pink glitter powder to each of the Dragonflies. I set with my heat tool and set them aside.
I added additional patterned paper and embellishments before affixing my Dragonflies Chipboard Embellishment Shapes with my Beacon Liquid Adhesive.
Lastly, using my Big Bite I punched holes in each side of the top of my Shiplap and threaded this cute red gingham ribbon through so I could hang my creation!
