Paper Heart Decorations


Finding myself without a book while sitting by the fire one evening had me restless for something to do.


I had some pretty paper and scissors on hand and started cutting out heart shapes.


Once I had roughly 40 hearts, I put two paper hearts together...


and sewed a line straight down, leaving a chain stitch for about 3 stitches until I sewed down the next 2 paper hearts.


I had enough to make 3 heart chains.


I finished each one off by attaching an Incomparable heart pendant.


Which is the perfect finishing touch and it adds some weight so they don't move around too much in a breeze.


Next I will try a chain of butterflies...


These are so easy and simple to make and are pretty decorations for a child's room, wedding or engagement party.

  2. They are lovely! The pendants give it a wonderful finishing touch. This can be a nice last minute gift for a friend...

    I think if I would make them myself I might add a bead or button in between some of the hearts. But again: they look marvelous the way they are right now!

  6. After seeing your hearts, I was thinking of doing some small ones and sewing to the bottom of a small lamp shade for a lamp for my granddaughters on their bedside tables.
    Thank you for the idea.
