I started out with an empty picture frame, burlap, & a string of beads (which I had purchased for a different project that I scratched!). These were all things I had lying around, which makes this project even better! To complete this project you will also need an iron, scissors, pen, heart cut out, glue sticks, & a glue gun.
To begin, I ironed my slightly wrinkled piece of burlap & cut it a little bigger than my picture frame opening. Then, I used a heart, which I had cut from paper, to trace the shape onto the center of the burlap. Next, I added glue to a small area, & began tracing the shape of the heart with glue & beads (a little at a time). I started at the bottom of the heart, worked my way to the top, back to the bottom, & then inside the heart. When I was finally finished, I framed it & hung it on the wall.
Here's the finished product:
And here it is in her room:
I hope you like it! Have you ever created art from a strand of beads?
