Today for this month’s Int’ Bloggers Club theme is “I Love Resin” and boy do we have some fun projects to share with you. I recently found this wooden heart at the thrift shop and thought this would be perfect for this theme and make a Conversation Valentines Heart for Valentines Day. Sharing thrifted Wooden Valeintes Paint Pour Heart that you can follow along and make to.

Step 1 – Give your wooden heart a really good sand with 120grit sandpaper to even out any uneven surface. Then 2 coats of Casement. Let Dry.
Step 2 – Pop out your Pouring Resin into 3 plastic cups. You won’t need much. I poured about 5mm into each cup. Then add a splash of Casement, Cranberry and Enchanted Echinacea. Give each cup a really good stir. Drop 2 drops of cell enhancer into each cup. Pour all of the colours into once cup. Be sure not to mix. Lightly tap the bottom of the cup to remove any air bubbles.
Step 3 – Make sure you have something underneath your heart to protect the surface that you are working on. Turn one of your plastic cups upside down to act as a stand for your heart and then pour out your paint emulsion.
Step 4 – Tilt your heart and roll the paint around until you get a really cool pattern happening and you’re happy with it. Stand your heart on the plastic cup and then let all the excess paint fall over the sides. Taking one of the stirring sticks every now and again go around and scrape the excess paint from the underside of your heart. Let dry.
Now to make a messy bow!
Step 5 – Cut your ribbon into 10cm strips. 2 of each type and then layer in a kris cross pattern. Once you’re happy with it take some jute and gather up the messy bow in the middle and tightly tie together.
Step 6 – Once the resin is dry, line up your stencil and stencil using Coal Black. I made my stencil but I have seen plenty of Valentine stencils in the $2 shop or you could even use stickers. Let dry.
Step 7 – Using your hot glue gun, glue your messy bow to the top of the heart and then the button to hide the centre of the bow.
And that’s it. Your conversation heart is all ready to decorate with or gift to your special honey.
