- 24" x 24" piece of Mason board
- 24" x 24" piece of kraft paper
- 1-pound pack 1-inch nails
- foam paintbrush
- acrylic paint (I used fluorescent pink)
- 100 yards thin, woven thread (I used metallic gold)
Paint the Board
Paint the entire surface of the Mason board until fully covered (Image 1). Let dry. Then, apply a second coat of paint and let dry according to your paint's instructions (Image 2).
Create the Heart Stencil
Fold the kraft paper in half (Image 1). Starting on the folded edge of the kraft paper, draw the right half of a big heart (Image 2). Position the heart in the center of the kraft paper leaving a few inches of margin at the top and the bottom.
Cut Out the Heart Stencil
Keep the kraft paper folded and cut through both layers along the half heart that you drew (Images 1, 2). Open the kraft paper; this is your heart stencil (Image 3).
