Scrap Wood Trim Heart
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.
All you need is scrap wood and a napkin that you like!
What you'll need:
To begin get your napkin and prep it by taking and pulling all the layers apart
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.
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.
Paint and gather some other wood scraps you want to use.
These are the backs of the boards I picked
Draw your heart or shape you'd like. I have also done the shape on my state.
Apply the wood glue to the back of your boards
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.
Now you will want to let them dry fully.
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.
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.
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.
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!
