String Art for Valentine's Day

It seems like Christmas was just here but now Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  I always make something to send to my three nieces along with the expected M&Ms.  This year I decided to make something a little different.  After buying a cool string art piece last summer at an indie artist market (see this post here), I purchased a kit complete with instructions and supplies to dip my toe into this craft. 

I had thought that I would work with wood and nails like the piece I purchased but that seemed a bit daunting for the first time so I went with a kit.  It's called "String Art by Klutz" and can be purchased here.  This kit is definitely for most ages (10 and up) so I figured I could handle it. 

Naturally, I wanted to make heart pics for Valentine's Day and there was a nice array of background papers and string colors to choose from.  It was definitely easy and enjoyable.  After this, I feel like I could actually try something with wood that's a bit more ambitious, but these were fun.  I hope the girls like them.
