Instructions
1. Draw three evenly spaced hearts onto the barnboard with a pencil.

3. Tie a knot around the nail at the bottom of the middle heart using dark pink embroidery floss.
4. Loop the dark pink embroidery floss around each nail, forming an outline of the heart.
5. Loop the embroidery floss around the nails again, this time working vertically so that the inside of the heart begins to fill with the embroidery floss.
6. Loop the embroidery floss around the nails a final time, this time going horizontally.
7. Tie a knot around one of the nails using the embroidery floss to secure all the floss in place. Cut off the excess floss.
