Standing Hearts {V-day Decor}

I can't believe it is almost Valentine's Day! Last week flew by as we worked at my husbands office doing some updating. It turned out great but was a lot of work! I meant to share these easy valentine standing hearts but didn't quite have time until now. 
 These are super easy and are just fun to add a little something to your Valentine's Decor. Here's a quick tutorial.
Hearts on stick (found at Hobby Lobby)
Square wood bases (also found at HL)
ribbons and raffia
scrapbook paper
modge podge
sandpaper and paint brush
 First trace your hearts onto selected scrapbook paper.
 Next, paint your block and hearts.
Drill hole in base of block to attach heart on stick. (I just used a drill)
After paint is dry, adhere scrapbook paper to face of heart using modge podge.
 After it dries, you can coat it with modge podge over the paper if you like. After its all dry, you can sand the edges to make sure the paper is a perfect fit with a clean edge.
  Next, using hot glue, attach the stick into the hole you drilled to put it all together.
 Add any embellishment you like and ribbon trim and there you have an easy cute addition to your Valentines Decor.
