Ombre Valentine Heart | Life and Linda

Ombre Valentine Heart


 To create these hearts, I had some styrofoam stored away in our garage.  I traced some hearts and my husband cut the hearts out for me. You can use a razor blade, electric knife, etc. to cut the hearts out.
Cut any size you want.  I happened to have a hanging three heart cutout decoration, so I cut them apart and used the different size hearts for my pattern.




The dollar store is a wonderful resource.  Flowers galore.  A bunch for $1.00.  Each bunch has 6 stems. I cut each stem to about 3 inches.  Enough to poke the stems and flowers into the heart styrofoam.


Supplies:
styrofoam
faux flowers- 6 bunches of flowers @ $1.00 each bunch
hot glue gun
electric knife - razor blade - jigsaw
Fishing line or ribbon if you choose to hang them
hook






My hanging ombre heart in the Breakfast room.
Creating smaller hearts for the backs of chairs is a inexpensive - CHEAP way of making chair back beautiful.



Sharing at some of these parties.

Stay tuned on Monday for the Valentine Tablescape Blog Hop

  10. This is really pretty! I made floral hearts a few years back, but they were all a single color. I love the idea of the ombré effect!!! If someone doesn’t want/know how to cut out a heart shape, they can purchase a pre-cut heart at a floral shop or perhaps even a craft store somewhere like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. I was a lazy bone and bought the pre-cut hearts! 💕Have a grand weekend!
