Scrap Wood Trim Heart

13 Materials
$6
1 Hours
Easy

I like to make thing with the materials I have around my house. I'm a bit of a neat freak, so I don't like stuff laying around but on the flip side I hate to waste. Today I wanted to use my scrap wood that I had left over from other projects. I also used the napkin technique that I did on my table top that everyone loved as I had these fun party napkins laying around. So lets get started.
post
All you need is scrap wood and a napkin that you like!
post
What you'll need:
Wood
Paint brush
Mod podge
Napkin
Scissors
Screws
Jig saw
Glue
Screw gun
Sander
post
To begin get your napkin and prep it by taking and pulling all the layers apart
post
Next apply the mod podge... get a good even coat all over it. You will need to move kind of quick so it doesn't dry.
post
Then you'll take your napkin and lay it on top the mod podge board. Smooth it the best you can if you get wrinkles it will add character to it.
post
Paint and gather some other wood scraps you want to use.
post
These are the backs of the boards I picked
post
Draw your heart or shape you'd like. I have also done the shape on my state.
post
Apply the wood glue to the back of your boards
post
Once you have applied your glue lay them on top of the board. Do NOT lay them on the side where you drew your shape.
post
Now you will want to let them dry fully.
post
You may need claps or weight (in my case a large book) if the wood pieces are different heights because you will want a good hold.
post
Now that they are secured down and fully dry you will want to flip the board over. Here add a few screws because if you don't when you go to cut sometimes the vibration will loosen them, or they may pop off.
post
Once you have your screws in use the jig saw and cut out your shape. You may need to sand the edges if it gets rough.
post
Here it is all done! I think they always come out amazing I hope this inspires you to try a wood project with extra pieces you have laying around!
