This project has two of my favorite things: chevron and burlap, so it's no wonder why I love it so much! Especially hanging against our teal door (which yes, badly needs a new paint job). This project was very inexpensive. I think I paid $1.50 for the heart after my 50% off coupon, and 50 cents for the ink paint. The rest of the supplies I had on hand.
in order to make this, you'll need:
wood heart, twine, burlap, paint, hot glue gun, chevron pattern, painter's tape
I first painted a few layers of white onto the heart. When that dried, I used this pattern from Billie Monster to create my chevron design. Then I used the pink paint to fill in, I did this twice to be certain the pink was bright enough.
When the paint was dry, I peeled off the painter's tape and hot glued the burlap bow and twine to the back for hanging.
I couldn't wait to hang this on my door, so I headed out in the freezing cold temperatures in the middle of a snowstorm to hang it and take these pictures. But doesn't it look like it was a warm sunny day?
I am the last person to be complaining about the snow. I actually love that we've had snow on the ground since November, but even I'm starting to dream of warmer temperatures. Especially since our furnace died this weekend and it was a cool, crisp 57 degrees in here this morning. Yikes!
Did you bust out your valentine's decorations this weekend? I had every intention but just never got around to it!
