During the long holiday weekend, I was stuck at home while the rest of ChatterboxBeach met at the shore to make a collection of hearts together.
They sent me a picture of what they were making. For this project, they cut deep-red, velvet-like fabric into heart shapes, sewed the pieces together adding twine for hanging, and stuffed them plump. They made so many beautiful hearts.
Wanting to get involved, I dove into my home fabric stash and came up with a soft purple fabric and made my own his-and-her hearts in purple.
Hearts become popular just before Valentine’s Day, but they have a forever message of love and friendship.
Here are some ideas ChatterboxBeach has for displaying hearts:
Billie likes to string several hearts on a ribbon and display the garland at the Orange Blossom Shop in Hampstead, NC.
Caroline suggests hanging hearts on cabinet knobs to add sparkle to the room.
She also ties homemade hearts onto birthday, wedding, hostess and graduation gifts for added charm.
Hearts left on a pillow make special valentines.
Hearts in a bowl make a pleasing display.
Mary suggests adding hearts to a wreath or vase.
She also likes to strategically place them at table settings for added beauty.
No matter how you choose to display your hearts, ChatterboxBeach has enjoyed making them.
