I’m in love with this project. I love the shiny heart against the wood of the birch disks. Once Allie and I started making these sweet things, we couldn’t stop. I don’t think of myself as a girly-girl, but I do love me a little glitter. There is something about it that simply brightens my day. Plus, the hardware store where we got the ball chain gave us a whole bag of awesome mis-cut keys. We were beside ourselves. Glitter, hearts, cool ball chain with the snappy clasps (didn’t you just love those when you were little?), and old unknown secret keys made for a dreamy afternoon!
Easily add these little disks to other wardrobe pieces. Give a little punch to your tote or sparkle to your favorite zipper pouch. I even attached one on to our dog, Lucy, for a little Valentine’s Day love.
This is my new wood backdrop in action. What do you think? I’m so used to white, I couldn’t bring myself to use it in full, yet. I’m still playing with how it looks best. The wood is so old and ancient looking, full of stories. . .
I think you should whip up a bunch of these and give them as school favors. It’s an easy project for kiddos to do. I guess it helps that Allie goes to an all-girl school, but even boys don’t mind a little shine now and then!
