Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the time it will take for paint to dry.
  • 2
    Cut approximately 12 inch length of freezer paper and/or more as needed.
  • 3
    Download and print project template. Use pencil to trace heart patterns onto freezer paper leaving approximately 2 inch margin around each. To create heart stencils, carefully cut out each heart out with craft knife.
  • 4
    Place the largest heart stencil in top center. Refer to photo, if needed. Position the medium and small hearts as pictured.
  • 5
    With shiny side down, use iron to press stencils onto apron making sure edges are well sealed.
  • 6
    Pour a puddle of Glacier White onto whatever you are using for a palette and add a small amount of Crimson Red to create a Pink (do not use all of the Crimson Red). Use sponge to this pounce Pink color into the large heart stencil at top and the medium size hearts as well. Let dry. If the apron has a pocket, you can either paint a heart on the pocket or not - it's up to you!
  • 7
    Pour a small amount of Crimson Red on side of palette and sponge brush this into the small heart stencils. Let dry. Remove heart stencils.
  • 8
    Use pencil to trace a length of the scallop border on tracing paper. On the reverse side of tracing, use chalk pencil to trace over pattern. Place right side up along the inner edge of apron and then pencil over to transfer chalk lines. Repeat around apron.
  • 9
    Using the liner paintbrush, carefully brush over the scallop border with the Pink paint mixture. Let dry.
  • 10
    Test the flow of Black on paper towel.
  • 11
    Trace “Too Cute” on piece of tracing paper. Use chalk pencil to trace over the letters on the reverse side. Turn right side up and position in center of large heart. Trace over the letters to transfer chalk letters.
  • 12
    Write over chalk letters with Black and liner brush as well as carefully outline the large heart and the remaining hearts. Let dry.
