DIY: Heart Banner

I think Thursdays are my favorite day of the week. There is always so much to look forward to!

Today I'm going to share with you a super easy project that I just finished. Of course it took me way longer than it should have because I always procrastinate with my DIY projects.

Here was my inspiration that I found on Pinterest:

So since I didn't have that super cute heart cut-out, I just traced one of my own, thus making the project take a long longer than it should have.

Please excuse my blurry photos. Not sure what was goin' on with me that night...

My good friend Rob likes to call himself the "architect" of this project since he gave me the glue stick that I used, and also cut out a good amount of the hearts. This project is pretty self-explanatory, so I don't think I have to give you detailed steps on how to do it.

Here's the finished product, hanging in front of my bedroom door.
