I received this box of testors stuff as part of a testers challenge from creators studio. They sent me purple and pink Testors enamel paint, red and white paint acrylic paint, 3 pack of paint brushes, small sponge sticks, pink spray paint, red glitter spray paint, silver glitter spray paint, plastic cement glue, black enamel paint marker, and some small wood hearts. They wanted us to use the wood hearts and the items to create something. This post contains affiliate links please see my

How to Make The Heart Family Tree
I started with the wood hearts I painted the two large ones with the pink enamel paint. This type of paint soaks into the wood more like a stain than a paint.
Then I painted the small ones with the purple enamel paint.
I had never used enamel paint before and soon realized you can’t just get the paint off the brush with water. You need to use an acetone or nail polish remover to get the paint off. It also has a stronger smell than most paints. So I suggest you don’t use it around kids and use it in a well-ventilated area.
Once the hearts dried I added my family members names on the hearts using the enamel marker.
The next thing I did was draw an outline of a tree not the best tree outline 🙂
Next, I took the red paint and the eraser end of a pencil and filled in the tree with red dots.
I added a heart to the tree trunk using the enamel marker.
Once the red paint was dry I took the hearts and glued them to the page. I added some bakers twine around the tree to the hearts.
Then spray painted the thrift store frame with the hot pink spray paint and then I sprayed it with the silver glitter spray paint.
Last I added the tree into the frame.
How To Make the Arrow Heart (super simple)
I used the bigger heart and painted it with the red acrylic paint then added the white acrylic paint dots using the mini sponges.
Then I used a valentines pencil and tied on black and white poke dot tulle and red tulle to the end with the eraser.
After that I cut out red felt fabric in the shape of the heart.
Then I hot glued the pencil and the wood heart on it to get the finished look.
It was great getting to use different products I have never used before. Besides never using enamel paint, black enamel marker, the small sponges, or the plastic cement. I Didn’t end up use the cement for this project but I would like to find something in the future I could use it on.
Sometimes going outside of the box is what we need to find and create new and exciting things.
