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?

HERE'S THE HOW TO:

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?

  2. So simple and cute! This reminds me of the Andy Warhol print (which I think is the same one that you mentioned you saw on Pinterest!)

  7. whenever i'm feeling really down in the dumps, painting is always my go-to, it always helps me feel better! I love that you added the pale pink background instead of going with the standard white of the canvas.

    1. Thanks girl! I'm planning to leave this one up year round. I just have to find the perfect place to hang it first. All I know is that it's gonna stay in my craft room, because it is a bit to girly for my husband's taste... lol!

    1. I used acrylic paints on this heart painting. The brand was Liquitex, which is super affordable and great for a beginner painter like myself.

      Here's a link:

  27. It's a painting to make you happy! Only seeing your pictures of it make me smile.

    I like to create my own art. With a passepartout and a nice frame it even looks good sometimes :-)

    since, his little ears have been completely filled in black. However, since I still don't have a house, he doesn't have a wall :/

  30. Oh I LOVE this one! Once I tried painting and it went horribly, horribly wrong... so I've never gone back to trying to create my own art. But, with a project as easy as this one maybe I should try! :)
