How to decoupage a wooden heart

Hi everyone! I have made my first ever YouTube video – a little tutorial on how to decoupage a wooden heart using a really quick and easy technique that I was shown by the MDF man at a craft show last year.

In this video I show you a quick and simple technique for decoupaging a wooden heart. It’s easy to do and you can use nearly any kind of craft paper – even really thick card. This decoupage technique works for any simple wooden shape that you can cut around.

You simply add PVA or tacky glue to the wooden heart, making sure you cover it right to the edges with your finger tips, and then place the glued side on the back of your paper. Cut round it with a craft knife and then sand the edges with a foam sanding pad. You can add ink for a vintage distressed look, and then decorate in any way you like!

These are good for gifts for friends or family with their name on, or you can add ‘new home’ or ‘happy birthday’ for keepsake gift tags to attach to presents. You can also keep them plain and hang them up with string, twine or crochet lace as lovely home decor pieces.

If you want to use tissue paper or napkins it involves a different decoupage technique that I will get round to showing you in another video.

Please do subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more from me, and like and comment if you have enjoyed the video or found it helpful! Thanks for watching x

      Aww Denise how very sweet of you! I suppose I am naturally fairly confident and my husband is the video editor whiz who did all the editing and put the music on it for me! If you want to give it a go then iMovie on Macs should be fairly intuitive to use and you just jot down ideas for tutorials and cards beforehand and make sure you have everything ready, then just talk as though you are trying to explain it to a friend! xx
