One of my very favorite new products from the Confetti collection is the Wood Veneer Heart Framework! This is a new concept and there are soooo many things you can do with it!! Of course you can always use it right on a scrapbook page but you can also use it as a home decor piece. It can be placed into a frame or shadowbox and hung that way or you can attach a string or ribbon right to the back of it and hang it on its own like Kim has done here! Each little compartment of the framework is meant for you to fill with papers, photos, embellishments etc. But again creativity is key and you can try something a little different and attach your photo to the outer edge instead of inside one of the little sections. Then following Kim’s lead, you can also layer and embellish on top as well, creating a very dimensional and unique piece for your home!! Read on for Kim’s description about how this DIY wood heart home decor piece came together!

It’s Kim here to share how I used this adorable wooden heart frame from the Confetti collection!

When I got this product, the first thing I thought to do with it was fill it with pretty papers and create a hanging frame.  I traced each shape of the heart onto different patterned papers and then glued each piece to the back of the frame.  One by one I filled each space with different papers and also some of my watercolor scraps.

I slowly added lots of layers of ephemera, watercolor pieces and a tiny photo in a frame to create a lush little layered area in the corner of my heart.  I like to use hot glue the best because you can layers lots and lots of things together.

Finally, using hot glue I adhered a piece of cotton string to the back of the frame.  You can use any type of string or pretty ribbon. Now it’s all set for hanging next to a gallery of photos or in a child’s room!
