Artful Days Valentines Altered Heart Tray


Hi all

I have a home decor project to share today. 
This started off as a wooden heart tray.


Coat the tray with gesso and then mix gesso with Rose Red Brusho Powder and paint over the first coat. Mix Rose Red with crackle paint and apply to the base of the tray. Next stamp over the base with a texture stamp.



Use a hot glue gun to adhere a string of LED lights around the tray. These are available at Poundland and come in different colours. I then carefully glued hessian ribbon around the edge to hide the wires.


Create a heart pillow by cutting out a heart shape using a nesting die and then dying it with ink. Sew and stuff it and glue it to the corner of the tray. 
Glue a resin heart to the centre.



Gather an assortment of flowers and start gluing them around the inside of the tray. Use small flowers to fill the gaps.





Thank you for visiting
