DIY String Heart Art

I've been trying to create some art for my living room, and I came across this cute idea for String Heart Wall Decor. I decided it couldn't be too hard so I decided to try for myself.
So today I bring you;
You Will Need;
* A piece of wood/corkboard
( I tried forever to find a good size piece of wood, but I decided to use a square corkboard instead)
* String
* Nails
* White paper

1. Tape the paper to your board and draw a large heart
2. Hammer in nails all the way around the heart outline - about an inch apart
3. Gently tear off the paper underneath the nails
4. Get your string and tie a knot around one of the nails. String the string around the nails, over & over until you create a pattern you like. 
5. Go around the outline of the heart with the string, to make it really pop! Once you are done, tie the end of the string to another nail and cut the end off.
6. Hang up and admire your artwork!
What do you think?
Will you be trying this?
