This wall art idea came to me a few days ago and I was so excited to make it for my little girl. She LOVES hearts, and I picked out a bunch of her favorite colors (because, if you are the parent of a toddler, you know how their favorite color changes every day).
Best part of all, this cost $2 to make. We already had some of this wood in the garage, leftover from making slats for our bed, and I also had the lace to cover the front. I bought some scrapbook paper while on sale at Michael's.
STEP 1: I made a heart template out of posterboard and then traced and cut out all my hearts (88 total).
STEP 2: I divided the hearts into 8 secitons of 11 and staggered the colors so they would look random.
STEP 3: I sewed each strand together, leaving a 1" gap between each heart and long threads at the top of each row to wrap around the wood.
STEP 4: I wrapped each line around the wood and secured the string on the top and back with tape.
STEP 5: I cut some lace and hot glued it over the front of the wood, making sure to seal each string.
I'm really happy with how it turned out and my daughter loves it...so that makes me even happier.
It's colorful and sweet, just like her.
