heart cross stitch

As Allison at little lovelies¬†watched Valentine’s Day decor posts pop up all over the blog world, she am once again reminded of how lame her holiday decoration collection was. She wasn’t exaggerating – she did not own one Valentine’s decoration. Until now. I¬†really love the simplicity and the gradient color. I also like that these can be framed, left in en embroidery hoop, or even given out as Valentines to your loved ones! [how to make cross stitch ombre hearts]

Project estimate:

  • Fabric, on hand or $1 and up
  • Embroidery hoop, $1 and up
  • Embroidery floss, on hand or $1 and up
Total: $1 and up

Note: Instead of buying four colors of thread, you can start with white and use RIT dye or Kool-Aid to color it. For each shade, leave the thread in longer to create a darker color.
