Description

Show your love with this ecofriendly garland of paper hearts, which would look perfect hanging down from a doorway or window. Display it to celebrate a special event with family and friends or simply brighten your home. Each colourful heart has been die cut from one-of-a-kind ecoprints I created on watercolour paper using flowers and leaves from my garden

Ecoprinting, which is also called botanical contact printing, is the process of capturing the natural dyes and pigments in leaves and flowers on paper using heat and pressure. All the colors you see come from plants – I don’t use any synthetic dyes, inks or paints – and every print is unique.

The hearts on this garland range in size from 2.75 to 3.25 inches wide. They’re sewn onto white cotton twine with enough twine left at each end for you to hang the garland or connect it to make another one. These garlands will last a long time if kept dry and out of direct sunlight. Each garland I make is one-of-a-kind so the one you receive will not be exactly as pictured, but will be equally colourful.

Handcrafted with care by Peta Bailey in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
