I love creating! After I made the wood & burlap picture clips (see my post in “Gift Ideas” from October 2014), I decided to create wood plaques using the same concept.
Start with wood squares & wood heart cutouts. I bought the squares at Hobby Lobby & the hearts at Michaels. Paint the wood whatever color you fancy! I used both tempera paint & wall paint (I buy samples at Lowes & Target of different paint colors, which is an inexpensive way to have several fun colors).
Once the paint dries, attach the burlap with furniture tacks, or any tack you like.
Then, glue on the painted wood hearts. I used E6000 glue to attach these hearts. Notice I glued the hearts with the flat side up. I thought this looked better than the double heart side.
On the red & black plaque, I added a vinyl label and wrote “love” on it with chalk markers.
Here is the finished product. I think it would be fun to add a ribbon tacked to the back and hang this on a wall.
You can not add the burlap and furniture tacks for a more simplified version of the plaque.
