What You'll Need

– scissors – wallet prints – yarn – wood ( measuring 30″ by 12″  and 3/4 inches in thickness) – paint or stain – Nails (measuring 1 1/4 inches length.. make sure they have big heads for the thread to go around) I purchased mine at home depot in the construction nails area. (not the small craft nails) – mini clothespins  (I purchased mine at the $1 store after the ones from Michaels fell apart.. the cheaper ones from the dollar store were way stronger..weird!!) – hammer – Concrete floor or Metal for under the wood

Step 1

Ok so I will start off by saying you will NOT be cutting the top and bottom off the printable.. This is how you will know if your attaching the letters  on straight..Only cut off the sides. Example: Like the first letter M is showing on the left.

Step 2

I stained my wood board in the color “special walnut”.  You can choose to paint or stain yours. If you stain it don’t forget to clear coat with something so you don’t get the stain all over your thread.  If painted, it’s a one step deal. Without measuring how far off I wanted the letters from the bottom I simply lined the paper with the wood and measured the gaps in between the letters to make sure they are even. Then I taped them off and started nailing in.

Step 3

My first letter.. 😀 😀 all done. Don’t forget to start from the center of the heart and work your way around.. Just like drawing one 😀 😀

Step 4

Here’s a snippet of my mini clothespins.. Gosh it was like dominos.. They wouldn’t hold still. I had to prop them up with mini rocks. hehe. I decided to copper leaf them to match my pink rose gold heart. 😀

Step 5

To start threading your letters simply tie a knot at one end and start outlining the whole letter before you start getting all messy. 😀

Step 6

Connecting the DOTS. 😀

Step 7

I did different directions and then went all messy towards the end filling in uneven gaps.

Step 8

To finish of your threading simply tie a few knots around the nail heads and cut the remaining yarn off.

Step 9

Ok so this is totally optional but I decided to add a little more bling and make this heart extra special by copper leafing it to make it rose gold. I dabbed on the gilding adhesive (more on this product below)  and left it to dry for 15 minutes before applying the copper leafing to it.

Step 10

Here’s where I got the copper leaf and gilding adhesive.

Step 11

Oh wait almost forgot.. If your attaching rope. This would be the time to staple it in. 😀  Now that’s it.
