Make your own wooden heart chandelier with a few items from a craft store and various shades of Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain. Display it during your Valentine's Day or Galentine's Day celebration.  

Step 1
Working over a drop cloth, use a lint-free cloth to apply Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain to each wooden heart and quilt hoop. Wipe it on in the direction of the wood grain.  

Step 2
Allow wood stain to penetrate for 1-3 minutes until your desired color is achieved. 

Step 3
Wipe off excess wood stain in the direction of the grain with a clean lint-free cloth. Allow to dry for at least 1 hour.

Step 4
Once the stained hearts and hoops are completely dry, string several hearts together and tie a knot at the bottom. 

Step 5
Hang the strung hearts from the quilt hoops. Tie a few loops of twine to the top quilt hoop to hang.
