Whether you enjoy Valentine’s Day or not, this little project will surely make you smile. It’s a great brightening piece for your home, or for a gift for anyone you care about. Yes, you may have seen this type of art before—but there’s a twist! You don’t need to head out to the hardware store for a hammer and nails! Instead I used brass fasteners. (It also came in a gold finish so it saved me some extra bucks from having to buy spray paint!)
There are plenty of options you can create with this project. I decided to go with a heart, well because they automatically make everything cuter.
Here's what you'll need:
- A cork board
- Brass fasteners
- Measuring tape
Cut out a heart shape from paper and place on cork board with some tape.
Measure the outline of the shape, then divide the perimeter by the number of fasteners you will be using. Evenly distribute your notches with a pen.
Start pinning your fasteners on the cork board following the notches.
Carefully remove the piece of paper.
Tie a small knot on the first fastener then start looping the yarn around the brass heads filling the shape with yarn.
Loop the yarn around the outline to help define the shape of the heart!
You can either hang this or simply lean it against the wall for instant art! Embrace the love folks!
