Update your thrift store finds or outdated décor with a few coats of Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch® 2X Ultra Cover® spray paint. Here’s how we took a decorative wicker heart and transformed it into a charming DIY Valentine’s Day decoration in just three easy steps.

  1. PREPARE: Setup a workspace in a well-ventilated area and use a drop cloth to protect your surroundings from overspray.
  2. PAINT: To spray paint your decoration, first shake your can of Rust-Oleum® Painter’s Touch® 2X Ultra Cover® spray paint (for this project, we used Gloss Berry Pink) for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Then, hold the can 10-16 inches from the decoration and spray in a steady, back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. For best results, apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart.
  3. FINISH: Once you’re done painting, set your decoration aside to dry completely for about an hour.

Now that your newly painted decoration is complete, add a few special touches to finish it off. We added a ribbon to hang our heart, but you could also get creative with Rust-Oleum Glitter spray paint, stencils or anything embellishments.
