American Heart Craft

craftsholidays

I love the summer months. There are so many fun holidays to celebrate, and so many great craft projects come to my mind. I have wanted to do something with a silhouette of the United States for awhile. I finally came up with the perfect idea, make an American Heart Craft.

I started by creating the silhouette of the United States in my Silhouette die cutting machine. I have seen them done with a heart/star representing where you are from. Home is where the heart is type of thing. My heart is in 2 places. I live in Southern Utah and my heart and family is here. I am from California and still have family there. My heart will always be there.

Directions

  • I cut out my United States with silver vinyl.
  • Then I needed to prep the wood it was going on. I wanted to give a new spin to the traditional red, white, and blue. So of course I went with aqua for my blue. I actually had a 24x24 piece of MDF laying around so I used that. I taped off the sections. Then painted.
  • After the paint dried I had to come up with a quote. I placed my USA cut out and started thinking. I wanted something that I could keep out all year if I chose to. I went with, God Bless this Home. Perfect.

This project took me about an hour to do.
