Wooden Heart with String 18cm x 18cm x 1cm
Carefully untie and remove the hanging string. Paint the front and side of the heart with the base colour and leave to dry.
Don’t worry about tracing
details that would be covered over
in the base colour, you can always
transfer the details on with the
template after the paint is 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. Cut the templates out to align easily to the wooden heart. With a pencil gently scribble over the back to transfer a light pencil version of your design onto the surface.
Paint in the leaves and flowers, adding in the extra details with the template method if needed.
Once dry, pencil in your names and dates, then paint over with either acrylic paint or a paint pen.
