Do you love the Target $1-$3 bins as much as I do?! I couldn't believe it when I saw these wood hearts there for only $3! I grabbed as many as I could and ran, ha. :)
You might recall last year's door sign. This year, however, I wanted something a little heavier and this wood heart was the perfect starting point. I started by painting it white. After two coats of white, I layered one coat of pink on top. I then took sandpaper and ran it across the entire piece. I love the amount of white that pops through. Doesn't it remind you of a pink sweetheart candy? Yum!
I'm loving all the crafting possibilities I have with my Silhouette cutting machine. They have so much to offer, including adhesive stencil material. The best part about it? It's washable, so you can use it again and again!
I chose a design from the Silhouette store - that was the easy part. The hard part? Turning "islands" into "bridges". I spent a handful of hours researching Google and watching YouTube videos before finally getting the hang of it. After a few test cuts, my stencil was ready.
