1. Paint the wooden plaque white. It looks much nicer and the red color of the thread will shine much more.
2. Drill holes in the shape of a heart. Make sure that every hole has a “partner”: A hole on the top should have an equivalent at the bottom of the heart. They should come in pairs, so you have it easy making the heart.
3. Stitch the heart. I went through each hole 3 times with the thread. It makes it thicker and stand out.
I hope you have a good weekend! I’ll be back next week to catch up. In the mean time, stop by Sarah’s blog for so many other fun tutorials and crafts. :] xo JA
