Conversation Heart Wall/Door Hanging


Today I'm showing off a fun project I made for my front door {so it wouldn't be naked anymore}.  I found the idea off of Pinterest and ran with it.

Isn't it cute!

I strayed away from the Pastel colors, and went with Red & Pink instead.

Here's how I made mine:
  • 6 Wooden Hearts {I found mine at Hobby Lobby & they were 2-$1, plus an extra 30% off...score}
  • Paint
  • Ribbon {I just picked up a roll 1" ribbon at Hobby Lobby because it was on sale}
  • Permanent Marker
  • Stapler
  1. First, I painted my hearts.  The Pink took really well to the wood & only needed one coat.  The Red took two coats.
  2. After the paint dried, I decided to go really easy & just use a permanent marker & write on the hearts.  I had thought about making some stencils, or using my Mom's cricut to cut out vinyl, but I wanted to get this project done.
  3. I layed out my ribbon and just used my regular stapler to stapled the ribbon to the wood.  It's such a soft wood that the stapled went in pretty easy.
And that's that...

Super Easy, and now I have a fun Valentine decoration {my first one!}.

Thanks for stopping by!
