DIY HOME Heart Plaque


This is an easy project to create in an afternoon. 


I took a wood heart plaque, some sweater print scrapbook paper,  paint and a red POSCA marker and finished with this home plaque. Since the heart board had a tan finish and our sweater paper was grey toned, I painted a grey wash on the board, mixing black and white paint to get a grey tone. The wash was allowed to dry a bit, then I created another tone of grey and rewashed  the darker areas.

Next I cut out the paper to fit two of the vertical boards on the heart. I glued them down with Mod Podge and allowed them to dry. 

Now I drew the home letters on with pencil and then painted them in with my red POSCA paint marker. If you are nervous about drawing letters, print out the word from a computer and use graphite paper to trace the word on your board.

You can find all of the supplies needed to make this project at your Bonney Lake Ben Franklin Crafts and Frame Shop.
