Prepare work place. Take a small amount of wood filler in your had and knead it softly. Then place in the center of the wooden heart. Lightly push to spread it evenly over the wooden heart. Cover the top entirely smoothing down over the edges of the heart on the sides. Using a craft knife, make indentations (cuts) down the center of the heart. This will give the heart the appearance of being broken. Be sure and do this before the wood filler dries. As the wood filler dries it hardens. Allow for drying time. Depending on amount and size.
Then using red or pink (color of your choice) paint the entire heart. Before the paint dries sprinkle glitter on the heart. Allow this to dry. After it has dried spray a clear coat over entire heart. This will give it a shiny appearance. Allow this to dry.
You are now ready to decorate your heart.
Glue a small white ribbon and small white rose bud to the front top. Add a pin to the back to wear and/or attach to card for a gift.
Broken Heart Hanging:
Glue string of white pearls around the entire heart. Add a white bow to front top and another piece of ribbon for hanging. Attach small laminated card with saying on it. (optional)
You can even write your child's name on one side of the heart and dates on the other. For laminating I use clear shelf paper.
Print saying of your choice on card and laminate.
