Doily Heart Ribbons

Valentine projects don't get much cheaper or easier than this one!
I found the idea on Pinterest.
It is a project from the blog Smashed Peas And Carrots.

You simply tape paper doilies to a piece of white thread.
Yep, that's it!
 A package of 24 hearts was less than $3.00.
 You could make a much more dramatic look all over the window, but I decided to just decorate this little corner of the living room.
 I still haven't gotten around to hanging curtains in the living room, so in the meantime I've hung up this crown candle holder I've had for awhile.
I think I found it at Marshall's.
On the chair is a peony made from a coffee filter.
Another Pinterest project!
I'll show you more in another post.

For some bizarre reason the Internet on my computer is not working right now, but it is working on my son's computer.
So whenever I can wrestle it from him I will be visiting your blogs. :)

  1. Lisa
    Simply and easy but yet so elegant. What a great project and I love how pretty you styled it.

    Have a great week

  2. Hi Lisa,
    Love your paper heart project. They look so pretty in an already pretty corner of your living room.


  3. Those look so pretty Lisa! I love the look of that whole corner!

  4. It looks amazing Lisa! I love how fills up the window in such a pretty way.

  5. Very cute! This would look so fun at my shop. There are huge walls of windows there.

  6. That is such a cute craft for Valentines Day. Thanks for sharing it!

  7. I love your heart ribbons ... they made that pretty little corner of your world even prettier. XOXO

  8. This is darling, Lisa! Very charming and I like that it's easy! ;-D

    For some reason, when I look out your windows, it just doesn't look like Texas to me! it almost looks like you have snow! And we actually got some in Illinois today!

    Love the crown!


  9. So pretty Lisa!Love the whimsical and elegant look of this!

  10. What a cute idea! I have a large window in the living room these would be perfect for hanging in front of. Great craft for me to do with the kids! Love that coffee filter flower too!:)

  11. I had some of those hearts but I think I gave them to the girls to play with. Wonder if they are still around somewhere...

  12. oohh la la, i love this idea!! Pinning. New follow. Follow back:)

  13. What fun to discover your blog and learn that you live in Houston. I have not "met" many Houston bloggers. I look forward to seeing more of you.

  14. This is such a great idea! I am psyched to find some heart doilies! Thanks for sharing (Visiting from Jennifer Rizzo).

  15. So simple, but it makes such an impact-I love that!

  16. Love your Valentine project. How cute and fun!

  17. Lisa, these hearts are so cute! I love the idea of them lining the window, too! I was just thinking today that I need to get some Valentine's Day decor up FAST before it's passed me by! It's snowing here so maybe I will get something done! lol! ;)

  18. But aren't the best ideas the simplest ones? You have created a charming little vignette. When you mentioned that the flower was from coffee filters, I just about put my nose on the screen to see if it was really true.. and it still looks real to me!! I can just see you walking past this corner and the air stirring causes those pretty hearts to twirl. Great idea!!

  19. classic and beautiful, just perfect for anyone who loves "white"!
