Vintage Shiplap Heart Home Decor
February 16, 2023
Hello Craft Friends!
I'm Dana and back to share another February project with you! February is all about Love! I love decorating my home for every holiday including Valentine's Day! How about you?
Today I'll be using Clear Scraps Heart Shiplap Shape Large Click here mini shaker heart Click here
The papers, flowers, ephemera I'll be using to decorate my Shiplap Heart, are from Frank Garcia's Magic Love collection. I adore the vintage look. But you could use any paper style you prefer to decorate your wood heart base.
To begin I took some Folkart Conch Shell acrylic paint and applied around the outside edges of my heart shape, including between the wood sections Let dry before preceding to the next step.
I chose two different coordinating papers from the collection, I traced and cut each piece out. Inked along the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. Then I applied foam tape on the back of each piece of paper before adhering to each section of my Shiplap Heart base. Set your heart aside for now.
Remove your shaker pieces from your package. I traced my bottom shaker chipboard piece onto one of the Journaling cards in this collection. Glue onto your chipboard shaker piece using Beacon glue. Trim away any excess paper using an x-acto knife. Using your Distress tool smooth away any rough edges. I applied some Prima Old Rose Chalk Ink onto my top shaker heart piece. Let dry. I also fussy cut a few hearts from one of my Scrap papers.
Next glue your next two chipboard pieces in place. Fill your shaker with sequins, glitter, confetti or beads. I chose Clear Scraps Summer sequins Click here now taking your acrylic shaker piece, peel off the protective film from both sides. Then glue in place. Leave undisturbed (no shaking) until throughly dry. Then I glue some white pom pom trim around the edge of my shaker heart!
Now it time to decorate and add your embellishments! I like to rearrange and figure out their placement before adhering to my piece. I applied some foam tape to the back of my shaker before adhering to my Shiplap Heart base. Here's a closeup!
I adhered some wood stickers, Prima flowers, crystals and sticker hearts! Some ephemera pieces I added foam dots to the back before adhering. I love to tuck in some pearls in between my flowers and a few hearts! Here's some closeups!
To finish my home decor piece, I glued some white ruffled crepe paper around the edges of my Shiplap Heart. I think this adds such a nice vintage touch! I added a metal hanger onto the back. Now it's ready to hang!
