Hand painted large puffed paper mache heart ornaments.
I've painted heart ornaments or door knob hangers in the past too,
always in the style similar to my whimsical painted Christmas ornaments.
I love combining the patterns and colors to make them
funky and fun!
I painted both paper mache hearts and wood hearts,
adding decorative ribbon hangers and other elements.
They are all reversible, painted on both sides so they look great
from any angle...
You can flip way they hang for a different look since they are
painted on both sides.
I hung them on my tomato cage topiary tree just
to get a visual of all of them together.
I painted about 30 hearts this year which would be a lot of photos...
I won't bore you with that many so pop over to
my Etsy shop to see all of them.
I adore decorative painting like this and have so much
fun adding all the pieces and parts to make each one unique.
If you are familiar with my work, you know I will have animal print in the mix!
This paper mache heart has hand painted leopard, black and white striped ribbon and
a pink striped painted heart surrounded by beaded fringe.
So cute hanging on a door knob or off a bed post or drawer knob.
I love this heart! Pink and gold checks heart with animal print on the
back, more animal print on front and beaded fringe...oh, and
leopard ribbon too.
Polka dots and zebra ribbon heart?... yes please.
These hearts are lightweight paper mache but they are large,
hanging at 8-9" including the ribbon hanger,
I'm selling most of the paper mache hearts in a set of 2 with a coordinating
wood heart ornament. The string of wooden hearts are all about 12" long
and also painted on both sides and the edges too.
What a great gift for anyone, divide the set and keep one for yourself!
Hearts look great any time of the year.
Just a few more pics...
The polka dot and striped heart above reverses to plain dots on the back
and a mixed pattern wooden heart set.
I love the wild red fringe on this polka dot heart!
I only painted a couple of the harlequin design hearts...
it's harder to paint diamonds on this rounded surface than
you would think!
I don't use patterns or stencils so
they all have that perfectly imperfect painterly look!
This set has sold, I still have one left in this design.
I have to confess, I kept this one for myself, I love the cream
and gold checks with the zebra ribbon.
In my constant quest to take better photos, I ended up hanging
some of these on my country turned funky cabinet makeover I shared
a while back... I like the way they turned out!
Thanks for reading about my hand painted Valentine heart ornaments...
or Birthday gift... Hostess gift... Easter... Christmas...or anytime of the year gift!
