LOVE sign

Materials:

  • Brown paper
  • Paper letters
  • Crackle paint
  • Piece of wood

 

Instructions:

  1. I cut out a heart from brown paper.  The letters came from a pack of post it letters for poster board signs. 
     
  2. For this one I tried out the crackle finish from Martha Stewart.  I will warn you that the directions say to apply over a primer.  I didn't.  I wanted the barnwood to show through the cracks.
     
  3. The Martha Stewart product is THICK.  It needs to be applied like spackle with a putty knife.  I just used my pieces to mask the area off I did not want painted.  I did not even tape them down or anything.
     
  4. Apply an even coat and then sit back and watch the magic.  As it drys, it crackles!  Lovely chippy paint in one simple step.
