Sometimes very simple and easy crafts turn out the most beautifully (or perhaps we think they’re exceptionally beautiful because they are very simple, easy and require very little clean-up.)
It’s no secret that our decorating style tends toward the spare and necessary rather than the overly-adorned, but when Brent thought the Mercantile display of our Valentine’s merchandise needed a little touch of romance, within 5 minutes he had conceptualized, planned and executed this simple idea.
He first found two illustrations of Victorian hearts with a quick Google Image search.
Dragging the images into a Word document, he then copy and pasted the hearts and re-sized them to various widths.
Using the laser printer, he printed the images on 8.5 x 11 vellum sheets. After cutting around the images, he slightly curled the edges to resemble rose petals.
Scattered across the table, they make a lovely (but not overly fussy) homage to Valentine’s Day.
