Baker’s Twine Heart

Thanks for Sharing!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this Baker’s Twine Heart is a fun Valentine craft project. I used a cool piece of wood for the background that I scored from a neighbor, but any wood will work, and you can make this heart any size you want.

I love string art and this project is a great way to add some Valentine’s Day decor to your home.

How to Make a String Art Heart

I started by printing a heart on an 8.5”x11” paper. You can search online and find a free one, or fold a piece of paper in half and draw out half the heart, cut, and open for your heart.

Then I hammered in some nails about 1/4” apart around the heart. I hammered the nails on top of the paper.

Once all the nails were hammered in I tore the paper off.

Figuring out the pattern to wrap the baker’s twine took the longest.  I started by trying filling in the right section, but ended up going with an alternating pattern… left, right, left, right

And I love all the contrasting elements… cheery twine, metal, and textured wood.
