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!

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.

Happy Thursday! I have two words for you all this morning- Wooden. Silhouettes. Do I have your attention, yet? Blog sponsor Southern Nest offers these darling silhouettes, and I’m so glad to have the chance to share them with you all today!

Courtney, the owner of Southern Nest, shares the evolution of her silhouettes in this blog post. Southern Nest, best known for it’s gorgeous monograms, made the leap to wooden silhouettes after Courtney was not able to find a high-quality, updated silhouette for her little one.

Choose your size, color (you can even get it unpainted–think of the possibilities!), and even choose to “add a bow” if you’d like!
