Twine Wrapped Christmas Heart Decoration

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! I am here with one of my little handmade presents for my friends :-)
I started with a polystyrene heart, twine, Home for Christmas ribbon and bow, gems, eye pin for jewellery making, split ring and thin red ribbon.

I used double sided tape to affix the twine to the heart. I began at the bottom-winding the twine around in a circle and moving up from there. I dabbed the start with some glue to make sure it would stay put. I wound it to the top until I couldnt wrap it round both sides anymore-I then wound twine on one side of the heart, cut then did the same on the other. I dabbed both ends with glue.
I put glue on an eye pin I use for jewellery making and plunged this into the top of the heart so I could hang it well. I then added a split ring and tied ribbon from this.

I then decorated my heart simply by using Home for Christmas ribbon and a bow, adding a little gem to the centre of the ribbon.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
