host post: add romance with glitter hearts

Today you get me and we really hope that you've been enjoying our week of Pinterest inspiration. Since I started the new year with glitter, I think that glitter should be incorporated into at least one holiday craft this year. What do you think??


My inspiration today comes from one of my very first pins from a blog that no longer seems to exist - good thing I pinned it when I did! I just love all of the sparkle in this picture and the simplicity of the burlap and glitter hearts. Love.


I'm taking the remnants from a project that I started over the holidays and "decided" to never finish. The burlap squares were cut and I had glitter, glue and a brush on hand. The heart template I cut with the Cricut.


Using the template, I dabbed on the glue to the burlap and then added the glitter ... and then a lot of patting to remove the extra glitter. It was a cold day so the glitter project had to be indoors. Never a pretty clean-up.



I sewed jute along the top of the four squares. To avoid the sewing machine, this is a simple project that can easily take a few stitches instead to secure the squares.


How cute is the final product as a sweet headboard decoration? Celebrate Valentine's Day by putting it over the kiddo's bed for sweet dreams, or add a little sparkle in your bedroom!
