  1. With a chip brush, paint two coats of Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Romance onto the wooden square.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Mix Delicate and Romance to make a bright pink color. Dry brush the mixture over the Romance shade, purposefully allowing the Romance color to show through.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using a stencil brush or cosmetic sponge, lightly dry brush a border all around the square using Romance, with emphasis on each corner.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using a chip brush, paint each heart with two coats of Rouge.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Place the Distressed Harlequin Stencil on top of a heart. Using a stencil brush, dab on Dazzling Metallics in Mink Pearl. (If desired use painter's tape to hold stencil in place.) Repeat on other heart.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Paint the edges of the square and both hearts with 2 coats of Mink Pearl.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Position the hearts, as pictured below, and attach each one to the wood square using E6000 Glue.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Paint wooden letters with 2 coats of Dazzling Metallics Festive Red using a 1/4" flat brush.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Using a small brush, apply Craft Twinkles in Christmas Red onto the front of each letter. Load a large amount of Craft Twinkles onto the brush, apply onto surface, and move around with brush until glitter is evenly dispersed.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Using a small brush, apply Craft Twinkles in Sparkling Pink onto each letter, on top of the Christmas Red.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Referencing the final image, position and adhere elements onto wood surface.
    Step 10 Example


When dry-brushing, wipe excess paint onto a paper towel until there is hardly any left on the brush before painting the surface. When stenciling, don't overload the stencil brush as the paint could bleed underneath the stencil.
