Today I finished making Valentines for my 2 Kids & 2 Grands.  This year I was inspired by hearts I saw on one of the craft sites.  Of course, I made them a bit different to suit my taste.

Using heavy floral wire, I fashioned a heart & covered it with white floral tape.  Then I crisscrossed it with a web of gold thread.  On 2 of them, I ran the threads across a smaller center heart & for the other 2, I made the webbing around it.  I found that touches of glue stick keeps the strings from shifting & are invisible once they're dry.  I think they'll look pretty hanging in a window or on a wall.   Initially, I painted the trial one red but it wasn't as delicate because I used a heavier twine.  I might have to do some more experimenting because it would make a nice Christmas ornament if it was shaped differently.

Charming hearts. I like the ones with the hole better, especially with a tiny heart dangling inside.

I also preferred the ones with the openings but Hubby liked the others better.  I'll bet the Kids/Grandlets will care more about the gift card that accompanies them than the Valentines.  Typical.
