Hearts, love and roses mean Valentine! There’s definitely love at the Charmer and decorating with hearts seem appropriate. I have some rose dishes with roses to use in a vignette I am pulling together. I decided to make a drop cloth heart to include in the vignette using heart, love and roses.
It is a very easy project (like those lately) and I pleased with how it turned out.
I cut a heart out of a left over piece of drop cloth, and placed a layer of natural cotton batting inside, next I hand stitched about 1/2″ inside the out side line of the heart. Note: You’ll see the cotton batting which I like so you don’t have to be careful about the batting not showing.
Next I took 2 1/2″ strips of red tickling, and started twisting the tickling and place it into a heart shape. The top part of the ticking was knotted, after laying the remained out I slipped stitched it to the drop cloth. Very quick to do.
I added a button later, so some pictures have it, some don’t.
So what do you think? I love creating simple vignettes especially for Valentine’s Day. The rose give a romanic feel to the vignette and the roses don’t die!
A pretty vignette for such an easy project!
