Does anyone know how I would make this? Do I paint the heart with black acrylic paint and then use white crackle? I found the pic below on etsy but I do not want to pay $65 for it, so i’m going to try to make one myself.

that doesn’t look like crackle paint to me. It looks like maybe they painted the heart black, and then went over it with a white wash. You can take sand paper and sand away the edges to make it look worn like that. Very easy to do. 🙂

@Crazyhair: I second that. It looks like white wash with a light sanding on the sides. You can also transfer the letters over by printing out what you wnat on the computer and tracing it onto the board with carbon paper, then painting over that.

There’s a spray paint kit I used for our’s at most craft stores you can buy that will produce this effect. They are alittle pricy for one small project like this though- I would have been better off buying one from Etsy.

i read on pinterest about distressing. you paint the wood whatever color under, then somehow add water or something to the white, and lightly go over it. not exactly sure, but if you google how to distress wood, it’ll give you step by step instructions. and then of course, you just stencil on the words and repaint them black.
