This easy DIY geometric heart wall decor is reminiscent of quilting with wood and paper, and is a whimsical addition to your home. 

Geometric Heart with Patterned Paper by Jen HadfieldThis post may contain affiliate links Hi, everyone! Today I’m sharing how to make this adorable geometric heart home decor piece using papers from Jen Hadfield’s Home+Made collection from Pebbles, Inc. I’m head over heels for everything in Jen’s line of products, but I especially love these gorgeous papers. I knew I wanted to use them right away for this large statement decor piece (perfect for showing off all of those lovely patterns) or else they might fall victim to my pretty paper hoarding tendencies!

Supplies for Making a Decoupage Geometric Triangle Heart

What I Used:

How to Decoupage Paper on to WoodStart by cutting the paper into 8″ squares, and then cutting the squares into two triangles by cutting corner to corner. This will give you a piece of paper that is just slightly larger than the wooden triangles (it’s really handy to have a little bit of excess overhang so that you don’t have to be too precise when placing the paper down.). Brush a thin coat of Mod Podge on to the wooden triangle, place the piece of paper on top, and apply gentle pressure with your fingers to smooth out any air bubbles.

Trim off the Excess PaperAllow the Mod Podge to dry for a few minutes, and then use an Xacto knife to trim the excess paper.

Adding a Coat of Mod Podge SealerAdd another thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper to seal the edges and protect the surface of the paper. Allow to dry completely.

Making a Geometric Wooden Heart DecorationThe edges of the triangles were unfinished wood, so I used my favorite Pale Gold Modern Masters Metallic Paint to give them a bit of shimmer and shine.

How to Hang a Geometric Wood Heart on the WallThe triangles hang easily on the wall with Command Picture Hanging Strips (one strip per triangle). Use a level to make sure that the two bottom base triangles are level.

How to Make Geometric Heart Wall DecorOnce the bottom triangles are level, the other pieces will fall easily into place. Just keep sticking them to the wall row-by-row with the Command Strips until you’re finished.

Craft Room Walls with Geometric Heart copyIt’s kind of hard to tell in the close-up photos, but the heart takes up about 30″of wall space in my (still-a-work-in-progress) new craft room. The process of making this heart reminded me of piecing together a quilt, so it makes perfect sense that it’s hanging over the sewing corner of the room!
