I’ve had this red plastic heart on my craft table for the longest time. I knew I wanted to cover up it’s red plasticky goodness and toyed with several ideas. Paint it, glitter it, wrap it in twine. I couldn’t decide. I ended up going with one of the easiest and most satisfying methods for covering something – decoupage.
I used pretty paper that had actual flowers pressed into it, scrapbook paper and bits from magazines all layered and adhered with Mod Podge Matte.
Once it was dry, I sealed the heart with Mod Podge Crackle Medium. The crackles are barely visible. The product has a very fine crackle effect which works well with this small delicate heart.
A friend recently sent me some inspirational photos of diy arrows that used real feathers. She said they reminded her of the painted feathers I recently made. I drew on that inspiration to make the arrow for this project. The arrow tip uses the same papers and crackle medium. The stick is a shishkabob stick wrapped in ribbon.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
