Transfer Heart Onto the Board

Position the kraft paper heart stencil on top of the painted Mason board (Image 1). Line up the top of the kraft paper with the top of the board. Very lightly trace the heart stencil onto the board (Image 2).

Hammer Nails Along the Heart Pattern

Starting at the top center point of the heart, hammer in small nails about 1 inch apart (Image 1). Make sure to not hammer the nails completely through the board. Continue to hammer in the nails about 1 inch apart all the way around the light pencil line (Image 2, 3).

String From Nail to Nail

Double-knot one end of the metallic string onto any nail on the board (Image 1). While holding the string taut in one hand, pull it to the other end of the heart and wrap it around any nail. Pull it across the heart again and wrap it around a different nail (Image 2). On every few nails, wrap the string around the nail twice for added security (Image 3).
