Pinned it. Did it! - Hearts on a Stick

Last week I shared with y'all my beautiful best friend's bridal shower.

One of the decoration pieces that I made I thought turned out pretty darn cute!  And proceeded to pat myself on the back for it.  Of course, I found my inspiration pinspiration on Pinterest... where else!?

hearts on a stick

I call this Hearts on a Stick!  Sounds sweet & romantic right?  Thought so!

So, here's how I did this cute & simple project....

Supplies Needed:
+Scrapbook paper - 3 different patterns
+Heart stencils - 3 sizes
+Wooden dowels
+Hot Glue
+Pliers
+Buttons, bling or pearls
+Green moss
+Mason Jar or something of the sort


1. Trace & cut different size hearts on each of the pieces of scrapbook paper.
Yes, I used cookie cutters for the hearts... also seen here.

2. Once you have all the hearts cut out, begin gluing the wooden dowels to the back of each heart.  Since the paper is thin, you won't need a lot of hot glue.  After the dowels are attached, glue one piece of bling to a few of the hearts.  I added mine to the ones that were less "busy".

3. Stuff the mason jar about 3/4 of the way full with moss.  Then begin placing the hearts in the moss.  *You'll want some of them to be shorter than others.  Using the pliers, cut the dowels down to the desired length & place each stick in the moss.

4. Once you have all of your hearts in the desired place, fill the rest of the jar up with the moss, sticking it in between the dowels & letting some of it pop out the top!

Voila!  I give you, Hearts on a Stick!
I re-used this from my wedding... Wrap lace around, hot glue together & hot glue pearls on.


This was a very simple project that could be used for multiple different occasions and took me no time at all!
Simple? Minimal time?  Win-Win!
