As I was putting away my Christmas stuff this year, I realized I have very little valentines decorations. So... I made one. It stands 7" x 3". I cut the heart out of the middle using a drill then my new scroll saw.
I am a cheap lady (insert cute little comment here). I found a way to give the distress look to wood without buying all the stuff from your "favorite" home improvement store. I used the acrylic paint and a little water. It dilutes the paint and I used my finger to spread it over the wood. It got a little dark in spots so I used some fine sand paper and wolla!
