Valentines Day Wooden Hearts <3 [Tutorial]

I <3 Valentines Day! A lot of people feel that it is a “Hallmark” Holiday..but I have always loved it! So I decided to get started on some of my Valentines day ideas! Here is how to make these way cute wooden blocks!

What you will need:
  • 4 Wooden heart blocks
  • Dark pink paint
  • Valentines day paper (4 sheets)
  • Adhesive
  • Vinyl Lettering ( I used my silhouette machine)
  • Embellishments

Step 1:

Step 2:
Cut hearts out of paper.
TIP: While your wooden blocks are still wet with paint press one of them down on the back of the paper you will be using. Not only will it give you an outline of what you will need but it makes it MUCH easier when using such an odd shape.

Once the paint is dry put a layer of this adhesive on the blocks and place paper over it..
