Earlier this year, my sweet friend April of the blog Funky Vintage Lovely sent over the sweetest gift after we lost our little Afton. It’s one of Lisa Leonard‘s home decor items, it’s called “heart strings”. I love it. I have been trying to find a good place to display it in our home, and I finally figured it out. Isn’t it so sweet?!
I had a small frame that I had found while thrifting that fit it perfectly. I first sprayed the frame white and roughed it up a bit. Then I hung the little branch from tiny hooks that I screwed into the little frame. I added a little baker’s twine to hang the hearts to fit the frame.
I wasn’t sure what to put behind it because I didn’t want it to lose it’s 3D effect. These overlays from Hambly Screen Prints worked great. I’m using the rainclouds design. I love how you can see through it.
It now sits on our mantel right in the center. I love it. Thank you, April. All three of my little heart strings all hanging together (4 including this guy).
