burlap + blue.

Hi Violet Hills readers! This is Linda, from burlap+blue, and I was honored when Ali asked me to guest post for her! If you aren't familiar with me, I own an etsy shop that focuses on vintage-inspired goods for the home, including...

dessert pedestals

personalized matching games

and custom coasters!

I also have a shelter blog with tutorials, giveaways and home tours.

And, today, I want to share a tutorial with you all for these...

Fun and easy, these lightweight clay hearts are perfect for stringing along a garland, hanging from a vase or bottle with twine, or even tying atop wedding and party favors.

Crayola Magic Dough
paper doilies
cookie cutters
twine or string

Step 1: Roll out your dough to about 1/4" thickness. Using your cookie cutter shape of choice (I chose hearts), cut out your shapes. Use your chopstick to make a hole for hanging.

Step 2: If desired, use paper doily to "stamp" design onto your shapes.

Step 3: Let dry (about 72 hours), string and hang!

Thanks for letting me visit with you all today!
Be sure to stop by and see me over at burlap+blue!
