The days are really flying by it seems! It’s time to start planning for Valentine’s Day already. Every year, my husband and I enjoy a dinner at home on Valentine’s Day-it’s much more romantic than being in the middle of a crowded restaurant. We save the dinner out for the weekend following the 14th. This year, I decided to go with white, pink, blush, and gold for our Valentine’s Day Decor. This Valentine’s Day Embellished Wooden Heart is an easy way to get the look I’m going for this year.
Each year, I like to make the dinner a special occasion with a pretty table setting and decor. I change up the look of the decor from year to year. I always enjoy deciding on the look for the year and adding in hearts that go with the overall look. Last year I found a hanging heart that was canvas on one side and chalk board on the other. I made a Hidden Messages Valentine using only a few additional items.
The dollar spot at Target is one of my favorite places to find inexpensive wood craft items. As each holiday or season comes around, there is always something that catches my eye. This year it was this white and pink heart. I love that the white and pink are already there-less painting for me. In fact, once I started working with the heart, I decided not to use any paint at all.
I bought a couple of packages of foam heart stencils at Jo-Ann’s.
Instead of painting, I used washi tape and ribbon to add gold to the heart. It’s overlapping and pressed around to the back of the heart.
Using white craft beads to add some dimension to the heart was the result of me sorting through my craft stash, finding a bag of the beads, and thinking, oh, here’s an idea! The beads are hot glued into one of the grooves of the heart. I used jewelry pliers to place them to avoid burning my fingers.
When sorting through my craft stash, I also found a package of gold adhesive letters that I’ve used for a few other crafts. The letters didn’t adhere to the uneven wood, so I added a tiny dot of hot glue under each letter.
To cover the tape as it wraps around the heart, gold ribbon is glued around the rim of the heart and hot glued in a couple of spots along the way.
I added a few of the heart foam stickers to the heart and also added some onto the wreath hanger along with a strip of gold tape.
The heart was $3 at Target, the foam stickers were $1, and I had everything else on hand to make this Valentine’s Day Embellished Wooden Heart.
This took less than thirty minutes to put together and some of that time was spent sorting through my craft supplies. This will be a pretty addition to our Stay at Home Valentine’s Date Night.
