I’ve been decorating for Valentine’s Day and I thought I’d show you my chicken wire heart that I made for our chalkboard in our kitchen. You may remember my chicken wire Christmas tree from this past December.
Well, as I was taking it down, I looked at it and thought that I could turn it into a heart if I turned it upside down and give it a few snips. It was previously green so I pulled out my spray paint and painted it white.
I knew I wanted to hang some hearts on the chicken wire, so for the past few weeks I’ve been making some black and white fabric hearts to match the decor in our kitchen. These are so easy to make either with a machine or without, and the directions can be found in last year’s post Easy to Make Fabric Hearts. Then I got the idea to hang this wire basket that I had been keeping the hearts in on the chalkboard.
Here you can see how I embellished the fabric hearts with some old buttons. Most of the hearts were made with scraps of fabric left over from making the ruffled stool cover that you can see in the post A Few More Kitchen Updates. (Go ahead! Take a look! It is the cutest thing EVER!)
As always, thanks so much for visiting! And if you’re looking for more Valentine’s Day Inspiration, come on over to Pinterest and follow me there. I have 3 large Valentine’s Day boards over there full of ideas!
