Valentine's Day Decor: Heart Skewers

It's taken me awhile to feel like pulling out my Valentine's Day decor.  And, truthfully, there's not a lot of it.  I enjoy putting up a few things here and there, but I have to say Valentine's Day is not my favorite holiday!
Anyone else with me on that?
Still, I happen to love these heart skewers I made.  They are so easy that I'm not even writing a tutorial about them!
Buy some wooden hearts and skinny dowels at the craft store.  Paint your hearts the color(s) you want.  Lightly distress if desired.  Put a big dollop of hot glue on the back of the heart, then press the dowel in.  Let dry.   Voila!
I put mine in a white pitcher vase filled with dry beans so the skewers will stay in place.
There you go- a quick and easy Valentine's day decoration!
