Valentine Hearts

A few hearts I made with found vintage laces, mother of pearl buttons and old faux pearls.
I used my own hand dyed wool, added the embellishments and blanket stitched around the edges after adding a little stuffing.

Hanging from the mantle...

Very quick and easy to make...

They were published in the recent Create & Decorate magazine, which I am kind of proud of....
Thanks for stopping!

That heart garland is soooo cute! I love how you used lace and other pieces to pretty them up even more.
Have a great weekend!

The contrast of colors on these hearts makes them so stunning and your stitches are so even. These are beautiful.

I forgot to ask...do you have an Etsy shop to sell these lovelies?
