Painted hearts

When I found these wooden coasters at a car boot sale, I beat Mum to them by a second! Here's what I did with them. The design is based on traditional Scandinavian paint techniques.

1. Draw round a coaster and work out a design.

2. Cut out the design and use it as a stencil.

3. Drill a hole in the top of each coaster.
4. Paint the design.

5. Add a ribbon to the top. 
These hearts were a real hit at a little craft fair I had at work! It's a pity I only had four of them as I could have sold twice as many!
