This cutie helped me make a Valentine's Day Countdown! Was some great mother/son time!
All you need is some scrap lumber, heart template, and a couple of 2-3 inch round tree cut, dried tree branch pieces.
First, you want to cut the tree branch pieces. I made ours about 1 inch thick. You will need 14 of them!
Then, I spray painted half of them pink and half of them purple. It took a couple of coats.
While I was painting, He traced our template onto a piece of 3/4 inch plywood.
I then cut it out.
I had him use the file and clean up all the edges.
Then we spray painted it red.
The frame stand I made was out of thicker board of pallet wood.
I used a drill bit then to put holes in the painted wood circles and then placed them around the heart.
The holes were bigger than my nail heads, so I hammered them in while they were placed around the heart.
After that was done, I attached the heart to my stand.
I then painted the numbers on the hearts and the verse on the heart. Then I sprayed each one of them with some clear coat.
