I wanted to make hearts from wire and so once I accomplished that, I dug out a few skeleton keys and buttons to add to complete the ornaments.
...gluing on numbers.
But my most exciting piece today is my wire heart decoration. I picked up a red candlestick at the thrift store yesterday, so I glued a wine cork in the candle hole. After drilling a hole in the cork it was the perfect base to display a twisty wire heart with pearl and red bead embellishments. I finished it off with a natural bow. Now I just have to decide if I want to part with it!
