Wood Heart Banner
Sometimes...well most of the time I go to the craft store to pick up a few supplies and end up bringing home other things that weren't on my list.
To make these
I picked up these unfinished hearts
sorry for the bad quality photo
and I stained them in dark walnut and painted one side with a very light pink and a dry brush method.
I used these tiny hook and eyes
and used my powerdrill very gently to start a hole and then I hand screwed them into the hearts
I hung them on a piece of satin white ribbon
and that is it
simple and cost me around $4.00
this is the paint
it is called ballet slipper and i bought the sample size on clearance for .50 cents at The Home Depot
this and the dining room are the only areas I'll decorate for Valentines day
I finally took out my cloche I bought for $4.99 at the Christmas Tree Shop, I added the little bird and some red satin ribbon and white cotton string to mimic a nest.
I picked these up from Michaels Arts and Crafts , they are in the dollar section, although I'm not sure where they will go yet
Valentines Day is on a Tuesday so I'll be making a nice dinner and dessert and spend it with our kids
I wouldn't mind being taken to the Cheesecake Factory on the weekend
I'll be linking this up at some great parties, click here to find out which ones
