Love is in the air today with a quick and easy project using baker's twine, nails and a random wood plaque I had in my stash. While I was pulling out some our Valentine's Day home decor I wondered if there was anything I could add. Why yes, there is and here it is...
Find a wood plaque and glue some random book page strips to it before adding your nails. I chose a heart shape and used a die cut as my guide.
Remove the die cut shape and you'll be left with your heart shape.
Rather than call it a fail, I went to Plan B. Plan B had me painting the border of my wood plaque, which worked wonderfully. Then it looked very stark compared to the stained book pages. I then added a light layer of stain to the painted edges as well to mimic the book pages. And then I really loved it!
You can see that I strung my baker's twine around the nails to form the heart shape and added a love pennant to the plaque as well. Be sure to outline the shape of the heart in addition to just wrapping across the heart.
Aaaah, much better.
I also added a little pennant banner. I had to. After the project was finished, I realized that my heart shape was not centered and I thought that the word pennant kind of tricked the eye.
