With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to make a large distressed wood heart! It’s very easy and fun to make! 😀
I distressed the wood with wood rasps.
Using a handsaw, I sawed the scrap wood roughly into a heart shape.

Then I smoothed the edges with wood rasps and sandpaper …
… and stained the wood heart with steel wool and vinegar.
Then I drilled a hole through the rustic wooden heart for the ribbon.

I love simple accents like this. Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm!
Thank you! 😀
I can never seem to get a good rhythm when I use our handsaw but, I should try a bit more. This is beautiful. Pinning & sharing
It’s really easy to use a handsaw. You could begin with green wood – pruning a tree for example – because fresh wood is easier to saw.
Simple and adorable! 🙂
