These cute heart signs started out as a doodle and now are one of my favorite Valentines crafts/decor!
The best part is that you don’t have to be a skilled painter or crafter – With a few simple steps and a little love you can make your very own barn wood signs too!
Folk Art Paint Including Gold
A couple different sizes of Paint Brushes
I started out with scraps of barn wood that I found in my husband’s garage. Literally these are scraps. It doesn’t have to be barn wood ~ just any scraps of wood will do.
You will want to start by white washing your wood.WHITE WASH: WHITE WASHING: White Paint Thick Brush Paper towels Dip your brush in the tiniest amount of white paint. Then brush off your brush so you only have a little bit on the tips. Once you put the brush onto your surface I just want the white brush into grab the smooth edges of the surface to give it a antique look. If you start out with too much white on your brush it’s too hard to go back so start out with very little and work up from there.
The white washing process will dry quick because you have such little paint do you are ready to start your hearts.
You will need some Acrylic Paint colors. I use “Folk Art” because it is my favorite. These are the colors. If you are interested you can use my affiliate link here for the colors:

You have the option to spray it with a clear coat of matte or glossy spray paint to help protect it. I feel this is only necessary if you’re going to have it outdoors. Hope you can get busy finding some wood scrap pieces because these were such a fun FUN craft paint! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
