I love the store called Wood Connection. They have all sorts of unfinished wood projects. If you are in Utah you need to visit them.

Anywho, I got my wood hearts from them. I wanted two sets, so I got two large, medium, and small hearts.
Paint the front of your heart. I went with red, pink and purple.
After the paint drys, stain the sides and back of each heart.
Once it's semi dry, go over the front with another coat of paint. Make sure you get a lot on there, DO NOT glob it, make sure it is smooth and even.
You probably want to do this step first... get some glitter that coordinates with your paint color and dump it on some wax paper like so. It needs to be a flat even surface. I LOVE Martha Stewart glitter. It's $5.00 a bottle, but if you can get it on sale, it is so worth it!
Take your heart and STAMP it into the glitter. Move the heart around over the glitter until it is covered.
Yea! A cute glitter heart!
I used purple glitter on my large heart, and pink on my small heart. I didn't use glitter on the medium heart.
