DIY ~ Heart Art

I'm a poet and I didn't even know it.
Heart Art.
Heehee.
I think this would be a lovely present for newly weds, or as a house warming to someone special!
It was super fun to make too!
YOU WILL NEED:
canvas (whatever size you wish)
paint (whichever color you wish)
Glue gun
Whole lotta buttons
Clear coat
First paint you canvas your color of choice.
Clear coat it so it is shiny and protected.
Once dry, faintly draw a shape of your choice.
I did a heart as you can see.
Sort through your buttons and create a color scheme.
I went with all white to really contrast my black.
Start gluing your buttons!
It takes a bit of time, but the effect is so pretty at the end.
Spray clear coat again if you wish.
Cheers,
Messy
