Last year, I made a very pretty garland out of old puzzle pieces, to decorate my kitchen hood.
I loved the idea so much that this year, I decided I would once again hang something in the kitchen...but what? You see, I like to change things up year to year, but I also like super easy, super inexpensive projects that look elegant and add something special to my home.
So I put my crafty thinking cap on and went to the store. Once there, I found these neat note cards in the "2 for $3.00" bin. I fell in love with the colors and farmhouse feel right away.
I could've bought hearts, but for .49, I bought a piece of dotted scrapbook paper instead. I like a bargain and it's a heavier weight, so it's on par with the note cards and hangs properly.
Once at home, I grabbed a red ribbon from my stash and tacked it to the hood. I simply arranged the cards on the ribbon to fit the space and added the teeniest drop of hot glue to keep them locked in place.
Next, I made a heart template, using an index card, and cut out 4 red ones from my dotted paper.
By the way, the same goes for the note cards. I can just rub the glue off if I ever get the desire to use them to write out an actual love letter!
