- corkboard, canvas, anything that can have pins stick through them
- string/embroidery thread
I used a paper to form my heart shape. I thinly glued it the cork board so that it would say still but thin enough that I could peel it off when I was done creating the shape.
I used brads to make the heart shape, I wasn't paying attention so some of the brads are different sizes as you can see in the next picture. Overall, I don't think it really matter and you can't tell once it's done.
I stuck the brads around the heart at random spots, I wasn't trying to be precise I just eyeballed it.
Once the brads are all around, I peeled the heart out and started wrapping my string around in a random fashion. I wanted by embroidery thread to be wrapped around each brad at least once.
But I ran out of embroidery thread. so what I did was combine embroidery thread with thin sewing thread and then I outlined the heart with elastic sewing thread. So I ended up using three different thread to create the heart and I like it this way!
