Chevron Heart Door Decor  Tutorial

Supplies Needed: 
heart shaped wooden sign
spray adhesive
exacto knife
cutting mat
modge podge (opt)
Before applying the fabric, I cut the ribbon handle off of my plaque and coated the plain side with spray adhesive.  Then, I laid my fabric (this one is a cool chevron kitchen towel from Target) on top and made sure the pattern was going in the right direction.  You will want to smooth from the middle of the heart out to the sides until the heart is completely adhered to the fabric.  Let dry 15-20 minutes. 
Carefully, turn your heart over and place on a cutting mat.  Now, trace the edge of the heart with an exacto knife.  Be sure to use enough pressure to completely cut through the fabric.
At this point you can add your ribbon for hanging or you can choose to seal your heart with modge podge.  Since this was going to hang on my front door, I decided to use one coat of modge podge for protection from the elements.  Let this dry completely. 
Add ribbon to the heart by threading it through a pre-drilled hole and attach to your door with a thumbtack.  All done!


Happy Heart Day!!
