Valentine’s Day Floating Heart Wall Art

Can I just tell you? I am so excited for Valentine’s Day! My house is a bit bare ever since taking down my Christmas decorations. It needs some sparkle! So I’m going all out for Valentine’s Day. Honestly, I haven’t done too much decorating for Valentine’s previously, just a couple hearts here and there (and of course heart shaped pancakes for the hubby) but now that I have Miss P, I’m going to make it a perfect holiday of love for her!heart wall art making home base

So here goes my first craft of Valentine’s Day folks! I’m so excited to share my Floating Heart Wall Art. This fun piece is made using a recycled picture frame, some hearts cut out of card stock, twine, and good ole hot glue. Ready to see how it’s made?makinghomebase heart frame

When I was pregnant with my daughter my husband and I picked up tons of frames at thrifts stores to refinish and potentially use in her nursery gallery wall, you can see that here. We have lots of frames left over. This one was an ugly gold frame, and we just spray painted it white. It’s perfect for this project.

The first thing I did was lay out my hearts in the frame to position them the way I wanted. I didn’t really get too technical with it, just laid them out. Then I laid the string over top and started gluing. I glued two heart cut outs together that way if they get turned around you don’t see the string or glob of glue on the back side. Lastly, I glued the strings in place onto the frames. Simple as that!

    This is so cute! I have to admit I’m also really missing the house being decorated so I can’t wait for Valentine’s so I can add some hearts and sparkle around the place!

    That is so sweet. I have a white frame like that, currently still displaying the New Year’s message, but this looks like a great alternative.

    So cute! I’m pinning this for the future. I’ve been trying to think of what I want to put up on my mantel for Valentine’s Day this year, and I think something similar has to happen!
