There are so many ways to decorate wooden hearts from Dollar Tree. I’ve done so many of them, but wanted to add a farmhouse heart to the mix. This DIY was made on a budget and looks so adorable leaning up on a bookcase. You only need a few supplies to get started.
- Wooden Heart DOLLAR TREE
- Scrapbook paper
- Half Split Balls AMAZON STORE
- Word Cutout- Walmart
- Jenga piece Dollar Tree
Let’s get started making this farmhouse heart
Start by tracing out your heart on the paper. This is super easy to do. I usually flip the paper over and trace away.
Apply mod podge to heart and place the scrapbook paper on the heart. Let it dry completely.
Here’s a tip: I use a mini craft iron and use a piece of parchment paper over the paper and iron it. It makes it so smooth.
Apply a top coat of mod podge to seal the paper to the heart. It’s best not to use too much mod podge because it can ripple the paper.
Wood beads give the Farmhouse look I was looking for
Paint the beads, I find it easier to use a sponge to paint the beads. The color I used was Waverly Plaster , it’s a great farmhouse color. Once dried I hot glued the beads around the heart.
Now the final touch was the word cutout. Find a word that means something to you, there are so many to choose from. Your home should be a reflection of you! Paint the word cutout before applying it to the farmhouse heart. Using the sponge made it quick to paint. Now to add some dimension to the heart, I used a Jenga block, which I painted first, to raise the word.
My farmhouse heart will lean against the wall on our bookcase. However, if you wanted to hang yours you can do that to and just place the the word in the center versus to the side.
As you can see this DIY came together so quickly! Hoping this inspires you to give this a try. Make sure to PIN IT for later so you have it for when you’re ready! If you loved this farmhouse heart you may want to check this DIY Rustic String Art Heart
