This is a really beautiful DIY project that you can use for decorating your own house as well as gifting it to your loved one.
For this DIY project you will need:
- Clear canvas with frame
- Hot glue gun
- Lots of red buttons
- Different sizes of red pearls
You can choose the size of the canvas to be bigger or smaller depending on your personal taste. Also, the number and sizes of the red buttons can be altered depending on your personal preference. For this example, I chose a 20cmx30cm canvas.
First, take your pencil and draw a heart shape on the canvas. For a symmetrical heart shape, you can use a sheet of paper, fold it in half, and cut a half heart shape. When you open the folding you will get a full heart. Put the heart-shaped paper on the canvas to help you draw. You can also go for an asymmetrical Heart.
Use a pencil to draw the heart on the canvas
Now you can start arranging the buttons inside the heart to see what it will look like.
When you are satisfied with the look, you can start gluing the buttons. I was using a hot glue gun for this process. As you can see, I went for different sizes and shapes of red buttons. But this is your time to get your creativity going, so feel free to use any color you want. Don't shy away from combining multiple colors, textures, and sizes. Make it your own!
Now it's time to finish the look of the heart. You might notice that after finishing gluing the buttons, there might be some gaps between and around the buttons. This might take away from the shape of the heart you were looking for. So you can take little red pearls, put some glue in the gaps created between the buttons, and place the pearls to fill them. You can also place pearls all around the outline of the heart to make sure the boundry is smooth and not edgy (but it is completely up to you).
With this last step your project is finished. You can now hang the canvas on your wall to add some color to your room, or make it a personalized gift.
Keep in mind that the choice of a red heart is completely personal and does not have to be your choice. You can create any shape (numbers, letters, quotes, etc), and you can make it in any color or size you want.
