This abstract painted heart project fits that exact criteria and is a great craft for kids or adults!

Supplies for Easy Abstract Art


  1. Start by adding several shades of acrylic paint in blues and greenish-blue tones as well as white to the wooden heart.
  2. Use a flat paint brush to blend the colors and wait several minutes to dry.
  3. Add some partial, overlapping heart shaped lines in different colors. It’s okay if the colors mix together slightly as this helps add to the coloration and texture. Once it’s to your liking, let it dry before you add the details.
  4. Add details in white with a paint brush. Lines, dots and x’s work well.
  5. Add additional details using the gold glitter dimensional paint. This will give your final piece even more texture and depth. I hope you are feeling inspired to make your own abstract art! I’d love to see what you create. Come show me on Instagram @Colormadehappy or Facebook!
