Vintage Heart Garland

All things vintage captures my heart! I am in LOVE with vintage..old..raggedy..primitive everything!!
I needed something to add to my hutch that is full of lots of vintage items, so I knew whatever it was that I was going to make I wanted it to look old...and here is what I came up with..

Of course it's not REALLY vintage (completely) but it's the look I was going for. And I did use some vintage items.

I started out using an empty cereal box and cut out the 3 hearts, then I decoupaged the hearts with pages from an old 1940's beat up dictionary..
The lace around the edges and the lace I used for the rosettes were made using vintage lace as well..
 Notice the pearls I used...yep vintage as well!
 This last heart wasn't exactly what I was going for..but well..once you glue something down with good's stuck for life lol...
 And here is the final product. I am very happy with how it came out!
I may still add a little red "something" to the heart with the rosettes on it, it looks kinda bare...yes??
