For this project I just cut a large heart out of cardboard, traced it all over the wall, then filled it in with paint. Pretty simple! :)
If you look closely you will see that I snapped a chalk line directly down the middle of the wall. This helped me line up my hearts--I started in the center and worked my way out. You could draw a line for each row if you want to be really careful.
Sorry for the blurry picture, its hard to work and take pictures! :) I simply placed the heart on the wall and traced around it, I used a pencil but would actually recommend chalk so that you don't see any lines after painting.
I used my pencil as a guide for even spacing since I didn't want to pull out a tape measure every time...
The pencil lines are hard to see, but you can see my first row of hearts centered on the chalk line and then I went out from there.
Once I had stenciled the whole wall I went back and filled in the hearts with paint!
I added a few random gold hearts for an accent color :)
Lucy loves it! Hahaha! her fake smile and "cheeeeeeese" :)
....and yes, she broke BOTH arms...!!!
Now to refinish a dresser and add some photos to the wall!! It never really ends, right?? :)
