Painted Wood Heart Ornaments

Hi All,

I had a lot of fun making these festive wood ornaments. I had gotten them in the impulse section of the store as you walk in to my local Fry’s Grocery in early February. They were labelled as gift tags, but I thought they’d make excellent ornaments! I have quite a few friends, Katy (Little Katy Bugs) is actually one of them, that has a tree up all year round that they decorate in each holiday’s theme ornaments. This would be a great thing for kids to do as well. Since they are wood, you can decorate them with different types of paint or stain and really get creative.

I have above the 2 sets I completed pictured as follows: left is front, middle is back, and right is front individually.

I did one set at night after my kids had gone to bed:

I then continued the next morning with this:

Supplies:

  • Pre-cut Wood Ornaments
  • Paint/stain: (I use these between the 2 videos)
    • MinWax Stain Marker in Dark Walnut
    • Apple Barrel Key West Matte Finish Acrylic Paint
    • Apple Barrel Cardinal Crimson Matte Finish Acrylic Paint
    • Apple Barrel White Gloss Finish Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Safe space to paint (protected or not cared about surface)
  • Paint pallette (something safe to have your paint on to work with)

Instructions:

  • Get all supplies out and your safe space prepared.
  • Put a little of your desired paint on your pallette space.
  • Have fun painting! See my video for how I mixed the colors and added stain in certain areas on others for a different look.
  • Let dry, and enjoy on your tree or as a gift to others!

Have a great day, and I hope this inspires you to keep creating things you love!!

I am a mom of 2, wife, and am always looking to create something myself instead of buying it. I met Katy from Little Katy Bugs after becoming a mom, and we both love to craft, both have active families, and a tactful way of telling others what we truly think. I LOVE THAT!!! Art is subjective and so is crafting. So, you may not love everything we make or do, but our goal is to inspire you to create yourself and make things that you will LOVE! We do still sell some of our crafts on the site, at craft fairs, and Katy now participates in a booth store front. Check out our Facebook page for more on the booth. Sometimes we just need inspiration and camaraderie. I hope we can help provide those things to you. Sincerely Donna Beth, a Co-Blogger of www.LittleKatyBugs.com
