Felt Heart Ornament…

Jan 21, 2009

This simple to create felt ornament can be used to decorate a bottle of wine during a Valentine’s Day dinner or given to a friend with a sweet sentiment written on the back. I think several of these grouped together and placed on a feather tree or plain wired type tree would look very sweet as a Valentine’s Day centerpiece. Several could even be strung together from baker’s twine to create a little garland. I love the simplistic look of red felt next to an old book page. Something so sweet about this combination that always makes me think of years past.
