DIY Faux Bois Art
2″ circle punch
faux bois painting tool (mine is by Martha Stewart)
Contact paper (any pattern will do!)
8×10 (or desired size) canvas
acrylic paint in desired color
small letter stamps
Step 2) cut contact paper to the size of your canvas
Step 3) cut a heart shape from the center of your contact paper (use a stencil if needed)
Step 4) remove the backing from the contact paper and position it on your canvas. Use glue to seal the inner edges, which will prevent the paint from seeping under the contact paper
Step 5) punch a 2″ circle from the contact paper and place it on the heart. Seal the edges of the circle with glue.
My faux bois heart has been added to my festive Valentine’s Day mantel. It’s the perfect addition!
