Just finished my hand painted Valentine hearts...
3 days before Valentine's Day LOL!
Oh well, better late than never
I say Valentine hearts but they can really be for any
time of the year.
Hang on a cabinet door...
Or a door knob...
in a window, on a gift, or even on your tree at Christmas!
I had painted these paper mache hearts years ago and
had done a giveaway with them on my Facebook page.
They were so fun to make, adding all the different elements
and patterns so I wanted to make more.
I drew a freehand heart pattern and cut them all out of
3/4" thick pine. Sanded, primed, painted on all sides, sealed and finished
with all kinds of fun elements and pretty ribbon.
They are pretty big, about 7" x 6"
There are lots of pics...ready?...
Yes, a peacock heart :) Pretty peacock pattern on one side
and gold metallic dots on the other side with a metal key and zebra ribbon...
Hand painted flower on one side and black and cream checks on the other
with striped ribbon
Big gold metallic dots on black, topped with a vintage u-shaped bolt
and harlequin green and cream on the other.
The diamonds are "studded" with painted thumbtacks... the same process
I used on my Studded Dollar Store Pumpkins
I LOVE the studs!
Zebra one one side and gold dots with a pink escutcheon
and metal key on the other, tied up with dotted black ribbon
This one may be my favorite.
Gold and Wine stripes with a verdigris metal letter "V" and more
metallic dots on the reverse with a metal key at the bottom.
This one is tied with vintage french ribbon in black and white stripe
Had to do some leopard ones! This one has more green
and cream studded diamonds on the other side...
Another peacock feather with an aged number "4" over black and
cream stripes on reverse, all tied up with leopard ribbon and blue
and cream stripes on the sides
More leopard with gold metallic dots topped with a metal key
on the other side
Most are painted with the black and cream stripes on the sides....
Some have a beautiful blue with cream stripes...
I love this one too! Gold dots on a pretty pink background, topped
with an aged number "9" with black and cream studded
diamond on the other side.
A white metal key over gold dots with more black and cream checks
on the other side topped with leopard ribbon
I like this one too!
Pink and cream distressed paint with studs and an aged letter "U".
Black and cream studded diamond on the other side
Gold swirls on black with a numeral "2" on a studded striped background
on the other side
Studs on Pink with zebra on the reverse.
A white metal key dangles at the bottom and topped with dotted ribbon
Another white metal key on top of a studded background and
the black and cream checks on the reverse
More checks and a verdigris "V" over green and gold stripes, all
tied up with black and white ribbon.
I already over did it with the pics but if you want to
see more, head on over to the Etsy Store
or visit my Facebook page and see them there.
