Wood You Be Mine? Cross-stitch this wood plank heart that is perfect for Valentine’s Day!
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I like to go big and bold. I guess it’s a good thing that my word for the year is Bold.
I’ve created a few big cross-stitch projects before, including cross-stitching on a sweater and on a canvas. I also love a good pun. For Valentine’s Day I’m combining puns with a big cross-stitch project to make a “Wood You Be Mine” Wood Plank Cross-Stitch Heart.
The supplies for my wood plank cross-stitch heart are pretty simple.
Wood Plank Cross Stitch Heart Supplies
- Tapestry needle
- Sand paper
- DOVE® Chocolate Bars
The first step is to buy a piece of wood in the size desired, or cut your wood to size. Then use a ruler and pencil to make out the holes. My wood was a square, and my heart is eight stitches high and eight stitches across. That means I have nine rows of holes.
After marking where all the holes needed to be I used a drill to make them. Once all the holes were drilled I used sand paper to smooth the drill holes and the edges of the wood. If you’d like you can leave your wood natural. You can also spray it with a light clear coat, which is what I chose to do, to protect it and give it a little shine.
Then it’s time to start stitching. I used regular red yarn and a tapestry needle to stitch through my wood plank.
While I was stitching up my wood plank cross-stitch heart I also gave myself a treat. My bold craft needed one of the NEW DOVE® chocolate bars available at Walmart. Bold flavors for bold people.
There are 6 New Bold Flavors including:
- DOVE® Salted Caramel Blonde – with a delicious blend of white and milk chocolate featuring sweet caramel notes and a hint of sea salt-for those who want it sweet and savory all at the same time.
- DOVE® Almond Brittle -with rich buttery toffee and almond pieces surrounded in smooth dark chocolate
- DOVE® Bourbon Vanilla – where silky dark chocolate is swirled with premium bourbon vanilla.
It’s easy to choose Pleasure every day with the DOVE® chocolate bars. My DOVE® Salted Caramel Blonde Chocolate Bar was the perfect treat to enjoy while working on my Wood you Be Mine Valentine’s Day cross-stitch project.
Don’t worry, I also picked up some extra chocolate bars to share for Valentine’s Day!
A cross-stitch project and a chocolate bar that you can share with others, or enjoy on your own!
