The Christmas decorations are down & the winter decorations are up. But it's almost time to switch over to the Valentine decorations.
I love decorating for every season & holiday. And, I like to create something new to add to the mix every year. This year, I'm adding this faux tin art.
To make it, I first painted an 8" x 8" wooden canvas panel with the color, Cotton, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company. Once the paint was dry, I used a brayer to add the color, Caviar, to a decor stamp from Re*design with Prima, & added the design to the canvas.
I also added a leaf & rose design to the canvas.
For the faux tin, I used peel & stick tiles from the Dollar Tree. These are so easy to work with & the possibilities are endless. You can't browse Pinterest without seeing a multitude of projects using them.
The tiles are 12" x 12" & since my canvas was only 8", I cut out a quarter of the tile. They easily cut with scissors.
I drew half of a heart on one side of the tile, folded it in half, then cut along the lines I drew.
I painted the heart with the color, Honky Tonk Red.
I let the paint dry completely, then used a damp rag to wipe away the paint from the high spots to give the heart a worn look.
I glued the heart to the canvas using tacky glue.
I used tacky glue to adhere twine around the heart to hide the uneven edges.
I'm excited to decorate for Valentine's Day & have something new to add to my decor.
