How to make

Step 1

Carefully untie and remove the hanging string. Paint the front and side of the heart with the base colour and leave to dry.

Step 2

Print off the template and trace over the back of the paper with a pencil. This can be done on a lightbox or against a window.
With a pencil gently scribble over the back to transfer a light pencil version of your design onto the surface.

Step 3

Paint over the design starting with the larger shapes first. Re trace over the design if needed to mark out the details once the previous coat is dry.

Step 4

Paint your wooden letters, using a base coat of white if using a pale or vibrant colour. When the letter are dry arrange them on the heart and carefully glue down the letters one at a time.

Step 5

Once dry, reattach the hanging string.
