Yah its the month of love! I am not one you puts out much Valentines’ Decorations but I do dabble in it a little each year. This year I made this You & Me Heart DIY Wood Sign. If you host a Valentines’ get together these Sweethearts’ Place Card Holders work great for a table setting. Right now I want to share with you my Faux Conversation Hearts I made from scrap pressed plywood.
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR FAUX GALVANIZED CONVERSATION HEART DOOR HANGER
- Pressed plywood pieces in various sizes per heart size preference
- Scroll saw or jigsaw
- Sander and sand paper
- Spray paint Rust-oleum Hammered in Silver
- Acrylic paint
CUTS NEEDED FOR FAUX GALVANIZED CONVERSATION HEART DOOR HANGER
I cut my pressed plywood into three pieces to make my three hearts. My hearts measured approximately: small 6 x 4 1/2 inches, medium 8 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches, large 10 1/4 x 7 inches. I made my cuts larger than my measured hearts to allow room for my cuts.
STEPS TO MAKE FAUX GALVANIZED CONVERSATION HEART DOOR HANGER
Step 1) Once I decided on my heart sizes I printed out different heart sizes in Word, cut the hearts out and traced them on the pressed plywood pieces. Then I cut the wood hearts out using a scroll saw and sanded the heart pieces. Step 2) I measured and drilled holes in the heart for the jute to loop through and sanded the drilled holes. Step 3) I spray painted the hearts a couple layers with Rust-oleum Hammered in Silverand let it dry. Step 4) Then I created a stencil using my Silhouette Cameo to create the words for the conversations hearts. I used the font Arial and used font size 125 for the small hearts, 150 for the medium and 175 for the large. I used white, pink and red acrylic paints to paint the letters.Step 5) I lightly sanded the painted letters and then threaded the jute through the hole. Then I hung it on the front door.
