Glitter Heart Wooden Sign

So I love Valentine's Day! It is one of my favorite "holidays." Growing up, I always celebrated it as a friendship day so it was never really about having a boyfriend or not. Now that I have an apartment of my own, I get to decorate however I want. This year I made a couple of decorations for our home. This glitter heart wood sign is one of them. It was my first time making anything glittery and I definitely learned a lot from my mistakes. It is kind of funky looking, but it works haha

Click READ MORE below for tutorial!

So here is what you need:
Freezer Paper (or any type of card stock, but continue reading and I will tell you why freezer paper is #1)
An Iron (if you are using freezer paper)
A wood sign (this one is from Michael's)
Mod Podge

1. First you will cut some of the freezer paper off the roll, draw a heart and cut it out.
2. Iron the freezer paper cut out onto the wood sign, it should stick. Iron the shiny side down!

3. Cover the heart with Mod Podge.

4. Cover Mod Podged area with glitter and let sit for about 2 hours.

5. After 2 hours have passed, shake the extra glitter off.

6. Peel the freezer paper off. If you see any Mod Podge residue, you can clean it with a damp cloth.

7. Let sit over night. Carefully cover the glitter heart with Mod Podge and let dry as long as the white glue is still there.

(The layer of mod podge should be very thin; I didn't do that, so it took forever for my mod podge to dry)

And you are done! hurray!
