Watercolor Paper Heart Wall Decoration

"This is actually two crafts in one. The first is a large 3D paper Mache heart that is painted with watercolor inks. The watercolor inks are combined with salt and alcohol to create an interesting patterned effect that looks about tie-dye. The second craft involves making a wonderful colorful hanging heart garland. This garland is made from the test sheets of watercolor ink painting from the first craft. Instead of putting them in the bin, I punched hearts out of the paper to make this fun wall hanging. "
