A Big Thank You to DecoArt for sponsoring this project!

I’ve been seriously remiss when it comes to gallery walls.

Oh, how I {heart} them. I want to surround myself with them and go running through grassy fields of gold with them.

And I’m finally going to do just that. Except they’ll have to stay put while I dance around and celebrate.

This is the begining…this sweet Geometric Heart Wall Art.  I shall remember this day even when I’m sitting in my armchair watching reruns of the Walking Dead and knitting booties for my great-great-granbabies.

Super Cute Geometric Heart Wall Art with Americana Chalky Finish paint!

Isn’t it more fun than playing hide and seek with fifteen bunny rabbits hyped up on red bull?

And it’s so McEasy to make.

Stenciling the heart.

All you need is a piece of plywood, this geo heart image from my Geo Heart T-shirt to make your stencil and some Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint.

I used my Cricut to cut out the stencil which I made about 12 inches square in the Design Space.

Measure to find the center of the plywood and place your stencil on the board.

Painting the Heart

Paint over the stencil. Be sure to tape around the stencil so you don’t get any paint outside the heart.  That would make your heart sad, and that’s totally unacceptable.

I just used a soft paintbrush and carefully painted over the stencil.  It was totally fine.

Making the Sunburst

To make the sunburst, take a long straight edge and draw lines for  the sunburst around the heart.  Make sure to always start your ruler at the center point of the plywood.

Tape off each ray as you paint it.

I used lots of different colors, so just pick the ones that speak to you. There’s a wide variety of Americana Chalk Finish paint colors to choose from!  Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint is available in Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, A.C. Moore and other stores.

I loved it as it was, but decided it needed a little distressing to tone down the rays and make sure the heart was the focal point.

Distressing the Rays

Be sure to tape off each ray before you sand it. And, most importantly, sand with the grain of the plywood.  It just looks way better that way.

Trust me.

Let me take a second to emphatically stress how important it is to tape off each ray before you sand.  I tried to sand it without tape, and it was a disaster.  The Chalky Finish paint sands BEAUTIFULLY and it can get in the grain of the plywood….and then you have to wipe it out with a wet rag.

It will come off, but it’s so much faster to tape, sand and then dust off with a dry rag.

Just want to save you some heartache.  Yet again, we want our hearts to be happy, yo.

Then all you have left is to hang your art.  I used some Ready Screw D-ring hangers and some picture frame wire.

I plan to make lots of super fun stuff to hang around this first addition to my new gallery wall.  Check back often to see how it progresses!

  2. Hey, this is a great project! I’m going to be making it for my In-laws anniversary. I was wondering what size plywood you used? I’m also planning on using acrylic craft paint, not sure if that’s a horrible idea so feel free to stop me.
