STEP 1: I made a heart template out of posterboard and then traced and cut out all my hearts (88 total).
STEP 2: I divided the hearts into 8 secitons of 11 and staggered the colors so they would look random.
STEP 3: I sewed each strand together, leaving a 1" gap between each heart and long threads at the top of each row to wrap around the wood.
STEP 4: I wrapped each line around the wood and secured the string on the top and back with tape.
STEP 5: I cut some lace and hot glued it over the front of the wood, making sure to seal each string.
