DIY String Hearts

 

 

 SUPPLIES:

  • piece of wood – the bigger the more dramtic!
  • string – we used the pink neon thin rope you can find at Home Depot, but you could use any yarn or string
  • box of nails (if want a nail with a decent head so the string won’t pop off)
  • spray paint to paint the wood
  • white paper to draw the heart on

 

 

 

 

 

PROCEDURE:

    1. Spray paint the wood the background color you picked. We used dark gray, so the pink would really pop

    2. Once the paint is dry, tape the wood with the white paper and draw the heart shape on the paper

     3. Time to get the hammer out! Nail around the entire outline of the heart – we spaced our nails about an inch apart.

     4. Once all your nails are in. Remove the white paper and throw it away. 

     5. Now the fun part. Get your string and tie a knot around the head of one of the nails. Keep stringing the string around nails. There isn’t a right or wrong way – just keep going until you like the pattern you created. I also then outlined the entire heart to make the outline pop a bit more also.
