Recycled Fabric Valentine's Day Hearts

Sometimes when I find something in my travels it gives me an idea for a project. Like today and my trip to Home Goods...

I found one cute napkin in the clearance aisle for $1. 

The price was right and the fabric was so cute and perfect for Valentine's Day.

It reminds me of an old fashioned ticking fabric. 

I brought the napkin home and started right away on my project. 

I cut out a heart from computer paper then traced it onto my fabric napkin.

I cut out the hearts and like the heart garland I made recently, I used hot glue to glue around all but the bottom of the heart. 

I stuffed the heart with pillow stuffing then hot glued it closed. 

If you don't have pillow stuffing you can use a washed bed pillow if you aren't selling your items.

For the hanger I'm using rebar wire

I wrapped the wire around a pencil on both ends to create the swirls.

The ends of the rebar wire get poked through the top of the heart and twisted into a safe swirl in the back.

I hot glued a button to the center of the heart.

I loved it so I made 2 more, three hearts fit on the one napkin I bought.

They are hanging on my peg shelf right now but they can also be added to a tiered tray, just twist the hanger so it hangs over the tray.

The peg shelf has scrap wood added to the pegs to create shelves, I think I'm going to paint the whole thing black.

These cute little hearts also make great Valentine's Day gifts!
