Our next DIY doesn’t just have to make an appearance for Valentine’s Day. It’s a nice addition to any home decor and it’s sleek shape would look great year round! Geometric shapes are trending around the blogosphere lately, and we’re really into the look. This DIY Geo Heart Bulletin is fun and functional, and the perfect way to show your home some love. Instructions below!

Materials:

12″ x 12″ cardboard* (recycle from an old box!), Pencil, Box cutter or sharp scissors, Ruler, 18″ x 18″ fabric, Spray adhesive, Hot Glue and gun, Foamfast hanger or command hook for hanging

*Make sure your cardboard is 1/4″ thick, so pins don’t poke through to the back

Instructions:

Step 1. Measure your heart shape. The two long sides are 9″, the rest are 4.25″. See below for reference.

Step 2. Use your box cutter or scissors to cut out your shape. Discard scraps. Be sure you use a scrap of cardboard or a magazine underneath to prevent cutting your work surface!

Step 3. Apply a thin, even layer of spray adhesive to one side of the heart and smooth on the fabric. Use your fingers to smooth any bubbles. Use scissors to make a slit directly above the point of the heart.

Step 4. Fold the edges of fabric over to the back side. Secure with hot glue, about 1/2″ from the edge. Snip any excess fabric off and discard.

Step 5. Voila! These Foamfast hangers or command strips will work well for hanging.

Leave your loved ones a special note on Valentine’s Day or use it to pin up special photos. It’s lightweight and easy to make!
