Mon Cœur Métallique

Mon Cœur Métallique! I love my metal heart!
Wire heart filled with corksI recently came across an adorable decorative heart made from chicken wire.

I also found some other unique items made from chicken wire.

 

The chicken wire objects inspired me to create my own Cœur Métallique (metal heart). I already had some leftover chicken wire stored in our garage. I cut out a heart shape on two pieces.

Then, using a long strand of wire I connected the two heart shaped pieces.

I filled it with wine corks I had been saving!

J’ Adore Mes Coeurs

J’ adore mes coeurs! I was inspired by Valentine’s Day to finally take down some leftover holiday greens and pine cones and transition to hearts. I had some extra fabric sitting around and came up with the idea of sewing hearts. I love how they turned out!

I had bought a linen table runner at a rummage sale this past fall for $1.00 and decided to use that for linen hearts. I also had an old cashmere grey sweater that had moth holes. So I used that fabric as well.
Linen and Cashmere Hearts

I found an old Burberry wool scarf that the moths had gotten a hold of. I think these are my favorite! J’ adore mes Coeurs Burberry!

I displayed some in a wire basket in my living room.

I put the remainder on some branches I collected and added Valentine lights.
