Wooden Valentine Hearts

These little hearts can perch on your shelf to show your guests who the Valentines are in your house. They are not too hard to make if you're handy with a jigsaw!! Here's what you need:
Wood
Paint
Jigsaw
Sandpaper
Contact Paper
Exacto Tool
Mod Podge
~Use a pencil to sketch the hearts on a piece of wood and use the jigsaw to cut them out.
~Sand edges.
~Paint. I went for a marbleized look and did it by not completely mixing the paints. It looked like this:
~Once the paint is dry, cut of the shapes of the initials you want on the hearts into the contact paper. 
Then peel off the backing of the paper and stick it to the heart. 
~Paint over the paper to make the stencil and let it dry, then peel it off. 
~Use some mod podge to seal the deal. (I haven't done that step yet....but I'm getting to it, I'm getting to it!!)

Voila!!
