My heart will always be in Utah {DIY}

I love pinterest. Am I the only one that pins a million DIY projects and never does any?
I decided to change this the other day... so I browsed through my DIY board and picked this.
Isn't it so fun? Well, I clicked on it and it was just a photo. Ugh. 
So I invented my own way of making it...

DIY: My heart will always be in UTAH

So I went to Michael's with my 50% off one item coupon in search for the supplies. 
I ended up getting an 8x10 canvas board. 
Then I got blue paint and ivory embroidery floss. 
Total: $6!
(I already had the nails- maybe 2 bucks from home depot)

I painted the canvas and nailed the nails in place for the state outline. 
Then I made up my own little heart, where SLC is....

Next, I took the embroidery floss and wrapped it around the outside nail, 
connecting it to the heart nails. Make sense?

What do you think?


My heart will ALWAYS be in Utah. 
I still call it home :)


  1. This is so so so so cute!! Utah is still considered home to me as well. I never do my DIY pins either...but with real intent to when I'm out of my in laws home and have space! And I will definitely do this project.
