Glitter, Doilies, & Hearts, Oh My!

My latest creation is this glitter heart doily. I've been experimenting with doilies over the past week and got the idea of covering them in glitter. I plan on using the hearts for Valentine's Day Cards. But until then, I thought I would share how to make the hearts. Simple directions below.

Supplies:
Scissors
Glue
Doilies - the more lacy, the better
Glitter
Paint brush
Toothpicks

Cut out heart shapes from the lacy part of a doily. Paint glue on the top. Cover in glitter and shake the excess glitter off. Let dry. Poke any holes with a toothpick that got filled in with glitter. Done.

* The hearts look better in person. The pictures just don't do them justice.

My sorority is donating valentine's cards to the New York Women's Center, and I sent this link to them for a nice easy way to jazz 'em up!
