I want to give a special welcome to all of you and thank you for visiting my blog. I have a fun little project that I want to share with you today that is fast, fun, and didn’t cost a penny. I had everything in-house to make this.
I first saw the idea for the darling heart in Romantic Country magazine, Spring 2015. They had used it for wedding decor and anything to do with a wedding certainly would be for Valentines Day right? My only problem was that I had run out of the heavier wire so I searched the house for a coveted wire hanger. Nope couldn’t find one. I won’t have a wire hanger in my closest (I’m very fussy) plus I used them all for crafting. So I took the journey up stairs and nope out of five closets I couldn’t find even one. I guess I had used all of theirs to. Imagine that! LOL
Then a few days later one appeared! I could not believe my eyes. I knew for sure that I was to make this lovely heart after all! LOL
Wire hangers are not the easiest wire to bend but I was able to bend it into a heart shape, then tie it in the middle with some twine. I wished that the wire had not been white so it would show through the lace fabric but with the miraculous appearance of the hanger I was not fussy.
I used a scrape of the pillow fabric that I had left and cut a heart about half-inch bigger than the wire frame.
I originally was going to hand stitch the fabric on the wire frame but being that the lace was not very see through the stitching did not show, (I know I tried it then unpicked) so I glued it with hot glue by taking the edge over the wire and gluing it.
It really turned out cute, I love the look that this fabric gave it so ruffly.
I hope that you enjoyed this little tutorial. I love all of your sweet comments they mean so much to me. Please share my blog with others this makes blogging so worth my while. Thank you so much! Have a great weekend! Whatever you do be safe and enjoy yourself and add a little happiness into someone else s life very much like you do to mine!
