• piece of wood – the bigger the more dramtic!
• string – we used the pink neon thin rope you can find at Home Depot, but you could use any yarn or string
• box of nails (if want a nail with a decent head so the string won’t pop off)
• spray paint to paint the wood
• white paper to draw the heart on
Step 1: Spray paint the wood the background color you picked. We used dark gray, so the pink would really pop
Step 2: Once the paint is dry, tape the wood with the white paper and draw the heart shape on the paper
Step 3: Time to get the hammer out! Nail around the entire outline of the heart – we spaced our nails about an inch apart.
Step 4: Once all your nails are in. Remove the white paper and throw it away.
Step 5: Now the fun part. Get your string and tie a knot around the head of one of the nails. Keep stringing the string around nails. There isn’t a right or wrong way – just keep going until you like the pattern you created. I also then outlined the entire heart to make the outline pop a bit more also.

to start print the word you want
paint the cork
Insert your nails into the cork, following the outline of your template. They should push in fairly easily with a little pressure
Now you’re on your way! Just start weaving in a back and forth fashion. The less you think about this the better. I actually found it to be quite therapeutic. Just let it flow. If you don’t like the way a certain section looks, unwind and do it again. It’s very forgiving!

2 Homemade Ornaments to Make
Make a Cork Ornament Tree
You will need:
- a glue gun
- six corks – cut them in half length-wise, so you have 12 cork circles
- a stretch of ribbon.
Arrange all but two pieces of the cork circles into a pyramid. Tie the ribbon around one of the cork ends and use that as the “tree topper” – glue that piece onto the top of your cork pyramid.
Use one of the remaining pieces and glue it on as a tree trunk.

Hi, I’ve found this really cute key holder I always lose my keys i’m usally all ready and ontime untill I have to spead 10 mintues tracking down my keys, would look so cute and would really bright us any wall. I will be trying this weekend!
You’ll need a frame, screw hooks, a screw driver. Find or buy some vintage frame, you can paint it as you like. Take a screw driver with appropriate size screw and hooks of an appropriate size. Drill correct sized holes into the frame, after holes are drilled, screw in each hook, and you’re ready to mount on wall and hang keys.

You would start out with a square or rectangle on the paper for the house, right? Then you would add a triangle on top for the roof, is that how you would draw a house? That’s how I did it, and still do!
That is exactly the pattern for these envelopes. But use more of a rectangle than a square for your base. It’s that easy.
