Layered Confetti Heart {a tutorial}

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I’m currently working on sprucing up our bedroom, and I wanted an inexpensive piece of art to display on our dresser. I LOVE the confetti trend that’s out there now–it’s fun, it’s festive, and, most importantly, even a non-artist like myself can do it, so I came up with this simple, mod podged confetti heart! Keep reading for the how-to!

confetti heart burlap and blue 459x600 Layered Confetti Heart {a tutorial}

Materials:
Mod Podge
3/4″ circle punch
scrap paper
5×7 flat canvas
foam brush
frame (used this Ribba frame from Ikea)
gold Sharpie (optional)
washi tape (optional)

Step 1: Decide on your color scheme, and start punching out circles. I really love the contrast of using plain cardstock, vellum, glitter cardstock and gold foil sheets. You can also do this with patterned paper or wrapping paper! I used approximately 30 circles for my heart, of course, you can always cut out more if you need to.

Step 2: Now I’d love to be one of those people who could freehand a perfectly shaped, symmetrical heart..but I’m not. So I cut out a heart out of scrap paper, and traced it onto my canvas. Obviously, feel free to freehand it if you’re more talented than moi. icon smile Layered Confetti Heart {a tutorial}

After tracing your heart, apply a layer of Mod Podge and start adding and layering circles. I started with the heart’s perimeter and worked my way to the center.

Step 3: Once dry, apply 2-3 layers of Mod Podge to seal, allowing your canvas to dry well in between coats.

Step 4: And you’re done! But if you want to take your craftiness a step further and add some glam to your plain jane picture frame, just grab a sharpie and add a border around the inside of the mat like so…

I also took washi tape and created some pretty decorative corners around the corners of the frame.

how to DIY a wooden sign {a tutorial}

hand lettered sign how to DIY a wooden sign {a tutorial}

Hand-lettering your own wooden signs is easy, takes few materials, and you can create something totally custom and one-of-a-kind. I’m updating and resharing a very popular post from a few years back today…if you’ve ever wanted to know how to create your own wooden signs, you’re in the right place! Enjoy!

Yes, lots of techniques are out there…painting over letter stickers is a popular one, especially when creating subway art. Letter stencils are another easy method. Neither was what I was after, though. I wanted something that would give me large letters, and I also didn’t like the line “breaks” that you see in letter stencils.
(I shared a very similiar technique when I first started my blog on my Wooden Welcome Sign Tutorial, but I wanted to reshare it here!)

Materials Needed:
computer and printer
pencil
wood

paint marker
craft paint

Step One: Find a font that you want to recreate, and, using your word processing software, type out and print out exactly what you want the sign to say. Also, make your letters the exact size you want them to be in the finished product.

Step Two: Cut out each individual letter (leave a border of white around each letter), and place each letter exactly where you want it on your wood. Take your pencil (I used a mechanical pencil with no lead showing), and outline each of your letters.

The marks will be visible, but only barely!

Step Three: (This, by the way, is where real artists probably want to stop reading-if they haven’t already!) Outline your letters using a paint pen.

Step Four: Using a small paintbrush and craft paint. Fill in your letters (I needed two coats).

I’d love to hear any tips you all have for hand lettering signs! This is, so far, the easiest method I’ve found…what works for you?
