Dollar Tree Hanging Heart Decoration

 Happy New Year! I hope you all are doing well. Today we are creating a hanging heart decoration. Last year I found this wooden heart plaque at Dollar Tree, and I decided I would create a hanging design using it. I will include a material list below and there will be one within the video tutorial below.

Materials needed
One wood heart decoration Decorative tissue paper Acrylic paint Paintbrush Mod Podge Hot glue Wooden beads Twine or craft rope Scissors Optional craft gems Faux floral Pencil for tracing

Begin by taking your decorative tissue paper, and cutting a small section of it. I cut a small square section of my tissue paper. You will need just enough to trace out the smaller heart in the middle of your plaque. Next, take your pencil and start to trace out the smaller heart. Take your scissors and cut out the traced heart on your tissue paper.

Next, take your mod podge and apply a thin layer to your smaller heart. After applying your mod podge, take your traced-out heart and add it over the mod podge surface. Smooth out your tissue paper, and I normally use my blow dryer to help with drying and creating a smooth surface. After, take a second coat of mod podge and add it over the decorative paper. Repeat the above steps.

Next, take your acrylic paint and begin to add your paint onto the larger heart surface. I gave it around two coats of paint.

You are now ready to add on your leaves and flowers. I chose some paper craft pressed leaves, and my smaller succulent flowers. I added them using hot glue. I attached them to one section on the bottom of my heart plaque.

This is optional, but I added a few of my faux pearls around the smaller heart. Even though the pearls have a sticky backing,  I used my E6000 adhesive. I wanted to make sure that they would not fall off.

Lastly, take your twine and begin to string on your wooden beads. You will want to determine how long you will want your twine to be since this will be used for hanging the heart decoration. Depending on the size, you may not need to use many beads. My twine was medium-length. After adding my beads, I tied a knot on one end, took my scissors cut the twine on the other end, and then tied it off. I left a small amount of the twine on both ends of my knot. Flip your heart over, and using hot glue, attach your twine to the back, creating a loop. 

Your hanging heart decoration is complete! I love how this turned out and this can be displayed for Valentine's, or even in the springtime. Thank you so much for stopping by and creating this craft with me. I'll see you soon.
