3D Heart Art!

Have you entered the Obol giveaway? You can do it HERE!


Hi! I hope everyone had a fun weekend, we kept busy even though it was cold and snowy for part of the  time, which equaled drinking lots of hot chocolate! I feel like this month has flown by is thanksgiving really next week?! I’m not ready!!
So I’ve been wanting to do this project for awhile because I absolutely love 3D art! So I was so excited to start and actually finish this project in one day!!  

So here is my version of 3D heat art!


Supplies You Will Need

Frames - I just bought mine from the dollar store
Fabric - I used 8 different colors of fabric, but you could do this with just  4 colors or even 1 depending on how many you want to make.
Glue any kind OR you can use modge podge
Hot glue gun
Scissors
Sewing machine
Flat push pins(optional if your frame already has a way to be hanged)
Paper




I bought these frames earlier this summer and spray painted them white.



Pick out 8 different fabrics or you can just do 4 if you want the hearts to be just one color.



Next cut out 3 hearts  one big, one medium size and one small



Next  I cut out a big square and a small square to fit the big and small hearts on  out of my main fabric (the polka dot) I did this for each color







Then I cut one medium square out of each of my solid colors using the medium heart shape I cut earlier



Then go ahead using your glue (or modge podge) paint the right side of all your fabric squares.






Let it dry, it may start to curl so I just put them between some books




I also cut out a piece of cardboard to fit on the back of the frame as the background  and then I hot glued fabric to it – it’s ok if the back isn’t pretty nobody’s going to see it!









Then place the cardboard on the back of the frame.



I also had some flat push pins and glued one on the back of each frame as well because there wasn’t anything to hang it with.  (but this is optional if your frame has something to hang it on the wall)






Once the fabric was dry I cut out my large and small hearts on the polka dot fabric and then my medium hearts on the solid fabric


Go ahead and fold all you hearts in half and then place the  medium heart on top of the large heart matching up the perforated lines SEW straight down that line.

then place your smallest heart on top lining up the middle lines.I then repeated this for the other colored hearts.



Then go ahead and turn your heart over using your hot glue gun glue just down the middle and then place onto the middle of your frame.







And then i just repeated the sewing and gluing for the other 3





Blank Wall





Pretty Wall!







I love how they turned out, the hearts are just popping out of the frame!
