Metallic Fringe Curtain (available at party stores or Amazon)
Xacto Knife, Box Cutter or Scissors
Decorative Paper
Double Stick Tape or Glue Dots
Flat Tacks and Nails


step-1 Use a piece of scrap paper to draw a large heart and cut it out. Place the heart on the cardboard and trace the outline with a pencil.

step-2 Carefully cut out the cardboard heart. Use the same stencil to trace the outline of the heart on your decorative paper.

step-3 Cut out the heart -- giving your self a little excess paper on the edges so you completely cover the cardboard.

step-4 Use double stick tape or glue dots to adhere the paper to the cardboard.

step-5 Hang the fringe curtain using nails or tacks.

step-6 Position the heart in the middle of the fringe curtain and slide flat thumbtacks between the paper and cardboard and onto the wall (so they don't show)
