The original inspiration for me came from Pinterest....lets be honest, everything comes from Pinterest =)
The original inspiration came from here, but since I don't live in Ohio I adapted it for California. I tried the technique where all the string leads to the heart, but since the heart wasn't as centrally placed, I felt like it didn't look as good as doing a scattered version like above. We bought a plank of wood, my husband cut and routed them into shape, I stained and stringed it and...voila! there you have it.
TIP: For extra definition I strung the entire outside and also painted the tips of the heart nails red to make it really Pop!
This artwork in our home now resides on our dining room wall:
I found this project to be very quick and easy once all the materials were gathered, I highly recommend it to add a fun accent to your home!
