One of my favorite things is to turn trash into treasures. Don’t spend a lot of money on craft supplies or decorations! Finding a creative way to reuse items that are being thrown away is actually really fun. Several friends and family members know that I am like this and often coming bearing gifts of items they are throwing away. My sister recently gave me a large box of scrap wood pieces leftover from building her basement. There was 2 pieces of finishing wood in this box cut at 4 1/2″ by 16″. Don’t you just Love it when the work of cutting the wood is already done for you? Because you can get right to the project. Follow this tutorial on how to make your own Glitter and Jute Valentine’s board.
To create your own Glitter and Jute 3 Valentine Hearts Decorative Board you will need:
Wood cut to 4 1/2″ by 16″
Gold glitter paint
Pink and white paint
Pink and white glitter
hot glue sticks
hot glue gun
personal cutting machine
contact paper (to create heart templates)
Follow the step by step instructions below or watch the DIY video tutorial.
First of all, Start by painting your wood board with gold glitter paint.
In the Second place, while the board is drying, create a template with 3 hearts that each measure 4″ tall by 3 1/2″ wide. Cut the heart template using your personal cutting machine.
Next you will want to center and Align the heart templates down the center of your your gold Glitter and Jute board.
Make sure that the paint underneath is dry before you paint the center heart white. Add white or clear glitter to the whit wet paint. Also paint the 2 remaining hearts pink and add pink glitter while the paint is wet.
Finally, peel off the heart templates while the paint and glitter are still wet and tacky. Allow time for the painted and glittered hearts to dry. In addition you will want to hot glue jute rope around each heart.
What kind of items do your turn from trash to treasure?
