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