Here is my take on her project in celebration of Valentine's Day:
I followed the tutorial at Exquisitely Unremarkable for the puzzle heart and used gloss enamel acrylic paint in Tuscan Red.
Twine Wrapped Star:
The twine wrapped star was inspired by this photo via pinterest.
Her version used Popsicle sticks, mine was made with paint stir sticks and hot glued as I went.
Took a couple hours for the wrapping part. The DH was watching Big Top PeeWee (he has a thing for 80's movies) and all I can say is that I'm glad I had a project to occupy the other half of my brain that wasn't being used. (I'll admit, I did laugh, but not something I could just sit through.)
Totally love the star as-is and it usually hangs by itself. The puzzle heart adds a nice "lovely" bit of color ~~ a cheesy pun, yes. It'll match the v-day card my DH gets. Maybe one with PeeWee and Winnie? Just kidding.
Think I'll go with these "pieces" of love (oh, I can't stop with the corny puzzle/love puns).
