You+ Me Valentines Art

I love Valentine’s Day. The pink and red and hearts and love and candy, etc. So fun. I wanted to make a cute wall hanging to capture a little of that, but there’s just one problem: I already have enough stuff on my walls. So I made this for my good friend Helen.

Materials:

-10 x 10in wood

-heart stencil

-pyrography pen

-wood stain (see note below)

Directions:

4. Stain the wood to your liking!

Note: I have fallen in love with unnatural wood stains – meaning stains other than shades of brown. Just go to Home Depot and ask them to mix a color for you. Here are the options (just click on water based wood stain). I chose cherry blossom and sangria and pure white. So fun!
