To sweeten our home for Valentine's Day this year, I made 3-D paper hearts that float over my Valentine Vessel in the dining room. Bring whimsy to your own Valentine celebration using my easy DIY: Hearts and Crafts directions!
I grew up making these hanging hearts, though they are a bit more sophisticated and elegant than before :).
My favorite hearts are the ones that are made of different hues, like the red and light pink one above. Glass-glitter lines their edges.
In an attempt to mimic the colors in the pink antique ornaments, I mixed acrylic paint in red and light pink to create different shades.
Silk ribbon in an array of colors (red, mauve, magenta, crimson) add extra interest.
Flanking the dining table centerpiece, pink goblets stand in as small vases. They hold red hot camellias that, (in a Valentine miracle that only Cupid could have designed), always bloom in my garden this time of year.
At nighttime, the addition of candles will make this Valentine centerpiece perfectly romantic.
Make your own DIY: Hearts and Crafts and surprise your Valentine (or yourself) this year!
Thank you for visiting Nora's Nest, and have a Happy Valentine's Day!
