|I bought some wooden letters online, but you could just as easily use thick cardboard for this.|
|I actually ended up not liking the way the heart turned out - |
but I started with the idea of putting the heart between the two letters
somewhere in our room.
|I started simply by figuring out how many corks I'd need across for the base of the "T", and I hot glued them together. After each one, I'd just squeeze them for a couple of seconds - it held really quickly.|
|I lined them up on the wooden shape in rows without gluing them to the |
letter or to other rows so that I knew how many I needed.
|Then I repeated the same thing for the top of the T, |
still not gluing rows to each other or to the letter.
|Once I had the whole letter covered, I put a line of glue on one side of the row, |
and then on the letter itself, and started gluing the rows in place.
|This part went really quickly, thankfully!|
|And that was it! I let it dry and before Valentine's Day, I'll hang the letter on the wall!|
|The B was a bit harder because of the round parts, |
but I just glued individual pieces to ensure a nice round edge.
