A Shabby Glam Rustic Heart on a White Twig Wreath

Hearts, Love and Valentine's Day Decor
a shabby glam, rustic heart of love and an update to our white, twig wreath on our front door!

So, I found this rustic heart on Etsy, last summer, and just had to have it...it wasn't a cheap score like most of my finds, but I just had to have it!!!

It started out like this....plain, teal and crusty rusty and so-o-o appealing even it it's as found state.

 But, because I'm a glam and glitz kinda girl...
(can I still say girl, when I'm over 60, now?  I think so...after all..."Forever Young" is my motto)
I just had to add some glitz!

then.... a little love phrase!

Here's how to add script to your project.

Starting with a copy, just the right size...



 rub on some chalk (any color will do) 
Then tape it in place. I outlined mine the best that I could. My surface was very rigid, so, I traced the pattern, as best as I could, to get the chalk image released. 


It then gave me a guide to paint over for a permanent copy.

 After the paint was added, I sanded some off for a more time worn look.



Here's how it looks, all done!

 Hanging on our front door.

And then added to our white, twig wreath. that I salvaged from our Christmas Mantel Decor.

VOILA..."True Love"

JP, I always end up here. I look at all the entries to a party and I end up at your blog. :) You have the best stuff. This is incredible. I wonder if I could do something like this with fabric? I just love this (darn - no tag sales right now. We have snow outside). Keep all this great inspiration coming... Linda

Very beautiful! I do the same rubbing technique to transfer words or images to my projects, too. Never thought of chalk, I usually use a pencil. Chalk gives more options...especially when working on something darker where pencil wouldn't show up as well. Thanks for the tip!

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Beautiful! That chalk technique is amazing!
