Valentine inspired diy heart wall hang

With February traditionally full of hearts, love and romance, I thought I ‘d kick my blog off with a lovely wall decoration, that is easy to do.  A quick and easy project to do with the kids, while hubby is on the golf course.

You will need:

Scissors

Scrap booking printed pattern paper 6 x 6 inch

Glue or hot glue gun and glue sticks

String

Small tree branch

A5 Hardboard/ or chip board (the back of an old calendar)

How to make:

  1. Select 3 different prints of scrap booking paper
  2. Decide on the size of hearts you want to use and make a template on your hardboard, cut out
  3. Cut 1 heart from each paper
  4. Fold each hearts in half, patterned side facing.
  5. Apply glue to reverse right half of one of the hearts, then attach to left side reverse of another, ensuring the edges match up.
  6. Repeat the process with the third heart.
  7. Before sealing the last sides, take your desired length of string and tie a knot at the bottom.
  8. Placing the heart just above the knot, trap the string between the unglued edges of the heart, bringing it right up to the center crease.
  9. Glue the last reverse right side and seal.
  10. Repeat steps 3 – 9 along the string, leaving approximately 4 cm space between the hearts.  For this project 12 hearts were made, 5 on the center string and 4 on the outer strings.
  11. Tie the heart strips from the top along the branch.

Your project is ready to hang

Hope you enjoy.
