Happy Wednesday everyone! I have a fun little prim garland that I whipped up. It is super easy and smells heavenly too! I used some scrap ticking stripe and waverly floral fabric along with some homespun to make "patches" on the hearts. They didn't show up so well in the photo, but I basically just "ripped" the homespun into small square shaped "patches" and attached them to my finished hearts with heat-n-bond.
Get your supplies ready
You will need:
Heat and Bond
Twine or Ribbon
Double Strength Brewed Tea
Cut out desired size hearts from the scrap fabric with your pinking shears. Don't worry about them being perfect, after all they are "handmade"! Soak your heart cut-outs in double strength
tea until desired look. This gives them a nice prim
aged look and allows the cinnamon to stick.
Sprinkle your damp hearts generously with cinnamon. I put
mine on parchment paper and then let them dry overnight.
Glue your cinnamon hearts to a twine or ribbon. I
also added some "patches" from torn homespun by
using my heat and bond. (follow the directions on the package) I hope you have fun making these, I sure did! My camera is on the fritz, so I will post my "show and tell" later in the week when I can download my recent photos. As always, thanks for stopping by!
