These Recycled Paper heart ornaments (shown in Caramel) are the perfect, Eco Friendly accessory for any Mason jar, gift bag, wine bottle, jug, etc. With 19 colors to choose from you can match any decor or occasion. Add two in your wedding colors to pint jars, drop in a tea light and you have the perfect table setting for your special day. Add one to a wine bottle for the perfect housewarming gift. There are two hearts of the same color in each set. These can be used and reused in so many ways!
The speckled hearts are crafted from recycled paper clay I make using high quality and durable ingredients. I start with recycled paper (office paper, junk mail), shred it then pour boiling water over it. After two days, the recycled paper (now pulp) is poured into a muslin cloth and allowed to drain. I mix the pulp with PVA glue and stabilizers. The clay is rolled flat and I hand cut and form each heart. After drying, the hearts are given a coat of acrylic paint, speckled and finished with a uv resistant gloss spar urethane.
The hearts are strung on a generous length of jute (approx 10 ¾ inches), so you can use them in many ways. The hearts measure approximately 1 ¾ inch X 1 ½ inch. The total length of a finished piece is approximately 12 ½ inches.
Because each heart is individually hand cut, formed, painted, speckled and tied, no two will be the same. While each one is crafted with genuine care and love, small imperfections can occur, but it adds to the unique charm of each piece.
