While I was out last week perusing my favourite and yet not so favourite store I found these wooden hearts. I bought 2, and each on was under a $1. I knew I had some twine and figured I could make something interesting for the ring bearer pillows. I wrapped the twine around the heart making it slightly messy on purpose, I don't like perfectly neat crafts.
I then looked through my stash of ribbons and found a nice lacy one with gold edges and tied it through the middle of the top, so the ring will hang in the empty space in the centre.
After the wedding we can use the hearts ti hang on our wall in the bedroom, or as our 'First Christmas' ornaments. I think they look wonderful and I'm glad to have made a good ring bearer pillow alternative. And it was very easy and inexpensive.
