It’s been a while since I have shared a project with you and this week, I have 3 quick and easy Valentine’s Day projects to share.  Each one of these projects is a completely different style.  Each one is incredibly easy, inexpensive and takes no more than 15 minutes to put together.  Today we are sharing a Shabby Chic Twine Valentine project.

I started by taking my scrap paper and folded it in 1/2 and cut out a heart shape.

Laying the heart on the canvas, I lightly traced it onto the canvas using a pencil.

To get the ‘shabby’ look, I took a paint brush a lightly painted the heart with chalk paint and before it dried, I rubbed some of it off with a paper towel.

I framed this with a resin frame I picked up at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. Love these frames!

This non-traditional shabby chic twine heart looks beautiful sitting on my mantel and received a thumbs up from Mr. Hobby.

If this is your style, we’d love if you Pin it to share!  Thank you!

    Ah that turned out really cute, I love how you cut the twine and didn't just wrap it. Found you at the Lou Lou Girls Fabulous Party!

      January 28, 2016 at 2:21 am

      Thank you! I guess it might have been easier to glue it then cut the heart, but I didn't think about that until later (shhhh. . .don't tell anyone). I think the cut edges just add to the overall look – but that's just me. Thank you so much for popping over!

    OH MY HECK! You are inspiring me sooo much! Love the heart…but think a puzzle piece would look adorable…right? And maybe some baker's twine…ooh…I need to make this…Thanks!

    Laurie, I love this, you can leave it out all year round it doesn't have to get put away after the holiday. And you can easily switch it out for other holiday decor. I love twine and rustic and this frame sets it off perfectly!!!
