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!

I love the little bit of aqua in there. So fun for Valentine’s Day! So tell me…have you started working on Valentine’s Day projects yet?
