New Felt Lace Heart Banner Kits




I think second to Halloween, my next favorite art holiday is Valentine's Day! I'm a sucker for all the reds, pinks, and glitter! And of course HEARTS!!!
I've been in search of banners for our large fireplace for a few years now. Everything in the store was 6 feet or smaller and I needed MORE. So we finally made our own and I'm excited to offer them to you too! The felt hearts are super easy to string on to the twine and you can alter the hearts or leave them as is! I hope you like them! We had a blast making ours. You may recognize some of the other art pieces on the mantel too.

All Valentine Goodies are on SALE!

Halloween Inspiration By Sherry Matthews!
    Design Team Member Sherry Matthews is definitely one of the Queen's of Halloween, so it's so fitting that she now has the perfect crown! Sherry created the most exquisite crown using our Tombstone Bases. It's absolutely to die for (pun intended). And if the crown itself wasn't a masterpiece, you have to see all the stunning professional photos showcasing her creation! Outstanding Sherry!
