Paper heart bunting

Pin It

I hope all my American friends had a wonderful extended weekend.  I am really thrilled to see that everyday my blog is reaching more and more people and I am excited to learn that my projects are being an inspiration to many of you.  Getting featured in sites like craftzine and dollarstorecrafts has really helped me a lot. I really appreciate all your support.

Here is another fun project that I made during the weekend. Actually this was not meant to be a bunting. I wanted to decorate another set of dry brances that I found with these paper hearts but then I felt that they would look better as a bunting, so I stringed them together to make the bunting.

I just cut out these heart patterns from a thick sheet and a few book pages. I covered the thick sheet heart with the book page hearts on both sides, glued button and punched a hole. I used my yarns to string them together. 

 It is a lot of fun if you engage your child. This is such a simple craft but such simple things really lift my spirits.

Blogging and photography have changed me a lot. I have learnt to appreciate and enjoy simple things in life. Yesterday I went to the terrace with my son and found there grasses growing there. I brought a bunch of them down and put them into a vase. Earlier I wouldn't have bothered to give this ordinary grass a second glance, but now I can even spend the whole day looking at this picture. It looks so magical that it really amazes me to see how even an ordinary grass can do wonders.

These sketches were by my kiddo. He just loves to draw vehicles, nothing else. These are the sketches of a cruise ship and dirt bike in case you are wondering.

That's it for now. Have a nice day.
