So I saw this heart and fell in love with it.

I wanted to make a smaller version for my collage wall (which will be shown when it’s mostly finished). We had an old piece of wood left and my lovely assistant Adrian stained it for me 😉  He stained it the same color as the mantel since it will on a wall in that room.

I printed a heart, overlayed it on the wood and started putting nails in it. It wasn’t my forte. They are not very straight…adds to the rustic feel right??



Originally I was going to use yarn but what I had at home was too thick so I used cross stitch floss.

I can’t wait to put it on the wall! It isn’t perfect and I didn’t center it right…I was in too much of a hurry. I am sure my handy dandy assistant can help me fix that 🙂
