Materials
- Stretched canvas
- Watercolor paints
- Paintbrush
- Spade drill bit
- Globe string lights
Instructions
1. After selecting a color, paint the canvas with watercolor paint. Paint over some areas multiple times so they are darker than others and allow other areas to be more streaky.
2. Poke holes into the canvas with the spade drill bit, creating a heart shape.
3. Unscrew all of the light bulbs from the globe string lights.
4. Place all the light bulbs into the holes you created in the canvas.
5. Reattach the light bulbs so the globe string light wiring is behind the canvas and the light bulbs are on the front of the canvas.
