Shabby Chic Valentine's Decorations

I had these adorable Valentines towels left over from last year.  I wanted to make a 
shabby chic project and these towels were great inspiration.


All I needed was the towels, needle, thread, scissors, stuffing, lace.

I cut the towels into hearts.  Each towel yielded 6 hearts.
Sew the front and back together leaving just a small hole
for stuffing your heart.  After you have added stuffing just sew up the opening.
Tack on your small piece of lace so you can hang your heart.
Then start picking the sides all around the heart to fray the ends.
That's it!   So easy and so cute.

Here's the end results


I added my hearts to some flowers and created my front door 
Valentine's Wreath


Use some of the hearts to decorate the inside also for Valentine's Day




So there's my heart for Valentine's Day
