DIY: Heart Art

Ever since I found this painting (via Because It's Awesome), I've been wanting to recreate it for myself. I've always enjoyed painting, and love fun, simple ideas that I can easily make for myself. With Valentines Day quickly approaching I knew it was the perfect time tackle this project, although I'm planning to leave this lovely heart art up even after Cupid puts his bow away for the year.

Ready to make your own heart painting?


You can do a Google search for hearts to find a shape that you love for your painting.

I mixed up these three colors for the perfect bright shade of red.

Now, your walls can have some heart! Of course, if you weren't into the lovey dovey heart theme, you could use other shapes as well. Circles, triangles, and stars could all be fun. You can also experiment with different color combinations too!

I haven't decided where exactly in my craft room I'm going to hang this little gem quite yet, but I'll be sure to share some pics when I do. I can already tell that it's really going to brighten up my room for sure!

So, do you guys like to create your own art too?
