Basket of hearts

Hi, and welcome and thanks to my new followers. I continue to grow a little each week, and I'm grateful.

Today I'm sharing a "basket of hearts" arrangement I made for Valentine's decor. I was inspired by this one at Extreme Domestication.


I bought a pack of the heart picks from the Dollar Tree last year but couldn't decide what to do with them. The DT has them again this year and again, I was drawn to them. Then I came across the basket mentioned above in my files and knew what to do. I already had most of the items on hand.

I had purchased this basket from the Dollar Tree last year for another project ( one that obviously has not been done yet).


I also had a couple of feather boas and foam blocks from the Dollar Tree. I purchase some more picks and some glittery picks from Michael's for the filler.
I wrapped the basket with the boas, securing it with hot glue. Then I arranged all the picks to my liking. I had planned to hang it on an interior door, but the hanger I have is too short, so this may become part of a vignette. 


Thanks for stopping by. I'll be sharing here:
