I took a little accidental blog break there, I didn't have a free minute to write any posts, but what have I been doing? I don't know! This summer is just flying by and leaving me in its wake. On my last trip to Hobbycrafts at the NEC, I bought an MDF heart set, the two hearts below cost £2, in total, not each!
As you can see, I started painting and forgot to take a before picture. I painted the outer heart in blue chalk paint, which is just beautiful to work with. Then I painted the "behind" heart with chalkboard paint. I then glued to top to the bottom.
I don't know what the two holes at the bottom are for, perhaps they are the reason this was only £2? I haven't quite finished it, I think it needs decorating to within an inch of its life and I'm wondering about paper flowers... any ideas?
Edited to add: the bottom holes are only on the frame piece, they are not on the solid heart so you can't screw through them or hang anything on them
