This easy DIY geometric heart wall decor is reminiscent of quilting with wood and paper, and is a whimsical addition to your home.
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!
What I Used:
- Jen Hadfield Home+Made Papers
- (20) MDF Triangles
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Xacto Knife
- Modern Masters Pale Gold Paint (optional)
- (20) Command Picture Hanging Strips
Start 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.
It’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!
