February Fever!!! { Part Two! }

So this little project was easy and adorable, and just something that anyone could to! And I just had to share!

{I was just going to hang the hearts you see in the back, but after i found these wooden letters, which happened to be half off at Hobby Lobby!, I decided to pretty them up and add them to the fun!}

 This isn't really a tutorial.. Because its kind of common sense how I did this. but I took some pictures so ill go ahead and share!

First of all, I wanna give a shout out to my mommy's Cricut! Ahhh(: I love love love lovvve this little guy! I finally learned how to use it! I think my mom was getting tired of me constantly asking her to cut something out for me!
  So I sat down and learned how to use it, which I discovered was actually super easy! And ohhh how my life changed because of it!! If you don't have one and you are a serious crafter/ scrapbooker/ love to cut things out and make them look perfect, I would highly recommend it!
{This project would have seriously been impossible without it!}

After cutting the hearts out I hot glued them back to back onto a string. 

The the back to back thing was a later addition, because when I hung them up they were twistin and turnin and all over the place!! And when they did, the backs would show, which happened to be an ugly hot glue mess!!  

 So I doubled them up and  glued the matching heart to the backs of the ones that were already on there.

Does that make sense? I feel like I'm being confusing... 

 Here are my letters! They turned out super cute! I also got the ribbon at Hobby Lobby, which was also 1/2 off! I think you are starting to see my pattern.. I. Only. Buy. Things. That. Are. Half. Off! Haha that's why I lovvve Hobby Lobby and their wonderful sales!!!

I don't know if you can see it very well, but I hung the letters up with a fabulous silver glittery ribbon! I am seriously in love with the stuff!

Total cost: $10
Go ahead and copy me, I know ya want to!
