Valentine Specimen Art

I have seen so much specimen art and thought I needed to try my hand....

I found these hearts at the dollar store....took the stick out and cut the hearts in half...
(little tip: don't use a serrated knife!)

Dug through ALL the frames...and I mean ALL the frames :)

And found the perfect one...

Put left over wrapping paper...yes it is...HOUNDSTOOTH...I am a little obsessed!

Hot glued the hearts onto the glass...

And here is the finished product...

Nice, simple and quick! And...only $2 for the packages of hearts!



  1. I loooove the houndstooth! Great finds at the dollar made it all look a lot more expensive!

  2. Very creative and thrify! So glad I stumbled upon your blog, happy to be a new follower. Please consider sharing your creativity with my followers by linking up to my blog bash K.I.S.S. on Sunday. :)
