Paper Heart Wall Art

January 11, 2013

Thank you Honeybee Vintage!  This was THE easiest project I’ve ever done.  I usually find projects on Pinterest that are “so easy” or “took me ten minutes” and then they end up taking all day.  You know the ones?  Truly, this project took me two hours from start to finish and cost less than four dollars.

You will need:

12×12 scrapbook paper.  I used two sheets per color and I had 7 different colors
One large branch stolen from neighbors tree, or a yard stick and some lace
White thread
Sewing Machine
Cricut (optional)

First you’re going to pick out your colors.  I chose light pink, dark pink, light blue, dark blue, yellow, light grey and maroon.

Step one.  Cut out your hearts!  I used the Plantin School Book cartridge, roly poly option size 8.5

Step two.  Sew your hearts together.

Here is a little video to show you how you sew the hearts together… hope it clarifies any questions!

Cheapest cutest project ever right?

Here are some other ideas I found from Pinterest that use this same idea

This was the curly branch I was going for… I’d be hunting all year for the perfect branch though so I just tore off the first one I saw!
Heart mobile- suuuper cute

  • I love this! I use my Cricut all the time to make home decoration projects. I love the butterfly idea and have it on my “to do” list for my daughter’s purple room using my Art Philosophy cartridge! Thanks for sharing – it motivates me to get mine done 🙂

  • I am sooooo excited to pick out our colors for our little girl’s room. I cannot wait to do this amazingly simple (yet super pretty) craft!!! I don’t have a Cricut, but I am still excited about cutting out the hearts (if I don’t get carpal tunnel in the process of doing it by hand)!!! Thanks for sharing!

  • Thank you for posting this tutorial, I have been trying to find one that would show me how to make this project 🙂

  • I love this so much! I am doing it my daughters room as soon as i can!

  • Interestingly enough art it is a great way to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day, your thinking is quite good, thank you so much for sharing with us.

    Hi, Abby! I just came across this project, and fell in love! I’m doing something similar for baby’s room, but with stars. So exciting! I’m kind of a baby DIY-er, and am totally clueless about how to saw all of my stars together. You reference a video, but I don’t see the link. Can you direct me to the right spot? Thanks!
