Joyful Creations - Heart Bunting

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,
    I got to finally spend some time in my craft room over the weekend, and it brought such joy to my heart. I have been wanting to make this heart garland for quite some time, and it was a very relaxing project.

My mom gifted me these wonderful die cut fabric hearts, and they are even more special because my Aunt gave them to her. I love passed down gifts! They are so fun. The ribbon was from a Christmas present to my sister and I asked if I could keep it. I try really hard to use what I have on hand so my projects are inexpensive and fun.

Next I pinned the hearts to my ribbon.

I tried to pin them evenly apart, so it would look nice when it was hung up. 

Once they were all pinned it was time to put it on my sewing machine

 I sewed right down the middle of the hearts and kept going all the way down.

 DON'T FORGET TO TAKE OUT THE PINS! I did and when I picked it up I got pricked all over my hands. 

TA DA!! Simple heart bunting!

 I displayed it for the pictures on my hutch, but I am planning on putting it in the spare bedroom.

What have you been creating this week?
