DIY: Pretty Pearl Hearts

These pretty pearl hearts are so easy to make and add the perfect finishing touch to romantic décor.

The Supplies

Wooden Heart Shapes

Craft Paint in shades of white

Craft Glue (I apply it with an old paintbrush.)

Pearls (I used a combination of vintage and new pearls.)

For a smooth finish you could sand the hearts. I was in a hurry and didn’t. I simply applied a layer of white, then champagne colored, paint.

Some of the hearts were drilled with a hole so that antique lace ribbon could be strung through once the paint was dry.

A thick layer of craft glue was applied to the entire top flat surface of the heart.

Then pearls of various sizes, shapes and colors were sprinkled over the top of the wet glue. It takes about an hour for the glue to completely dry and secure the pearls. If any spots are missed on the heart just add a pearl here or there with a hot glue gun.

The hearts were then tucked into various vignettes around Storybook Cottage.

I may leave them out even after Valentine’s Day.

Good Morning, Laura. The pearl hearts are so sweet and easy enough that I can craft a few myself. Thank you and God bless your week. xoxo

With a ribbon hanger, they'd look great on a Christmas tree, too - I did a little tree with white, gold, and silver last year and it was lovely!
