And here you go again….another DIY!!!!

Yep….I wanted a 36″ heart as the feature piece above a baby bed for a friend.  I wanted specific colors and decoupaged slats AND custom-painted name! So I had to make it myself … here’s how….

I used brown packing paper to make my own pattern…..laid out randomly sized planks…..traced my pattern onto the wood….and cut!

I then painted, stained and decoupaged tissue paper with 1Gel  onto each plank according to my “vision”…..

I used my electrical sander (I use this one here.) to heavily distress each board….including the tissue paper planks.  I wanted the wood grain to be very visible!

You see that wood grain on the center gray board??? Isn’t that fabulous???  It is the exact look I was after!

A little hand-lettering of baby Georgie’s name….and it is complete! Check out my Hand Lettering course to learn all my tricks for making beautiful signs.

I promise you can do this DIY!!! This wooden heart sign is the feature piece of this room.

However…if you are more of a “point and click and add to cart” kind of person….I offer these in my shop section too…..I’ve got you covered!!!

I also offer other hand-painted and custom-designed sign for nurseries and bedrooms in my online shop HERE.  Including .. my cable spool signs which are a good “boy” option to the heart.
