Geometric Heart Art


Funny how sometimes random supplies can inspire you enough to make awesome projects! That's what happened with this Geometric Heart Art.

I found these mini cubes at our Dollarama. 36 mini cubes all for a whopping $1.25. My first thought was to spray paint them and make a monogram for Ellie’s room, but blah. No room for blah today. With two packs to work with I painted one pack with Americana Decor Maxx Gloss in Juicy Melon & the other with Martha Stewart Gold craft paint.

With a geometric look in mind I opted to paint half the cube, cutting diagonal from corner to corner instead of straight across. Although it may seem time-consuming it only took 2 episodes of Peppa Pig on Netflix to complete, so it really wasn’t that bad! Please tell me that there is someone else out there that bases time spent crafting on TV episodes or movies watched?!!

I had an 11×11 IKEA shadow box frame that was sitting around collecting dust, so I cut a piece of white cardstock down to fit it and started playing around with the painted cubes. I opted to make a heart & once all the cubes were layed out and centered on my paper I glued each one down with some hot glue. Some double-sided tape to make sure my cardstock stayed in place on the back of the frame and it was ready to go!

    This is so cute. So, did you tape off the blocks and paint them with a brush, or what?

      Before my boys could tell time, if they asked how long something would take, I'd tell them, 'as long as one Barney show or one Sesame Street. If I worked on a project while watching or listening to a certain show, I'll remember that show every time I look at the project! ;)
