Hello everyone, its Karen here!!!  I have been playing with the HEART HORSESHOE.  Now my first thought was that its for weddings but of course it isn't is it?  It could be used as a gift for a horselover, someone moving to a new home or as a decoration for your own home!  Anyway, I decided just to decorate it to hang somewhere.  Here is what it looks like before...

and here it is after.....I think you will need to click on the pic to enlarge it to see all the detail, sorry X

I covered the horseshoe & the hearts in a pinkish paper and then went over with Victorian Velevt DI.  I made more holes around the shoe & threaded organza ribbon through them.  I added paper roses on top.  For the hearts I glued some pearl edging round.  I then threaded on 2 long pieces of organza ribbon & threaded 2 pearl ribon sliders on where the rbbons cross.  I tied the top with a knot.  I would have threaded pearl beads onto the ends of the ribbon if I had had them haha.

I have chosen to make this girly but you really can do anything to decorate this piece!  Thank you for looking, HUGS XXX
