With Valentine's Day approaching, I thought I'd dress up our fireplace mantle a little. I left some of our Christmas decorations out when we took our Christmas tree down, and created a white winter theme with the glittery trees and white twinkle lights.
I just wanted to add a little pink and red, so I pulled out some fabric scraps from my massive stash.
I cut a simple paper heart to use as a pattern. I cut two of each fabric, for front and back.
I had pink satin ribbon on hand for 'stringing' between each heart.
I just put the ribbon between the two matching fabric hearts, and stitched around the edge of the heart, being sure to catch the ribbon. I used about 12 hearts (times two, because I made a front and back for each heart.)
I first hung it across the front of the fireplace.
And later decided I liked it wrapped around our 'Winter' wreath on the mantle.
This little project didn't cost me anything, and took about 15 minutes to complete. That's my kind of project: cheap and easy!!
