I have no claims that this is super creative craft project, I'll leave that kind of craft to all you artsy fartsy types. You know who you are.
You see, I learned long ago that I am good at recreating projects that other people think of. Thinking of them myself, not so much.
And I gravitate toward crafts that can be made in an hour or two. Much longer than that and it will sit unfinished until I finally throw it away two years later. Really. I'm just about to give up on a sheet music wreath that I started prior to Christmas in 2011.
So this a a project for all of us creatively challenged people that still want to feel a tad bit crafty.
I printed out some Valentine images that I found on The Graphic Fairie's site. Love that girl!
And I used mini clothespins that I bought at Walmart to attach them to my hand crocheted string. You can just use a plain piece of string, but I wanted it a little thicker, so hence the crocheted chain.
Embroidered paper heart doilies were hung between the vintage images. I bought the plain paper hearts from Hobby Lobby and "embroidered" around them with crochet thread. They have the paper heart doilies all over the place this time of year for right around $1 a pack.
I displayed it on my turquoise dresser.
This whole thing was inspired by Jenny at Crescendoh's tutorial on embroidering paper doilies with baker's twine. I posted the photos of it on my Facebook page and on Pinterest, but you can check out her tutorial HERE.
