HappyChristmas in July: Make a Danish Woven Heart Out of Real Birch Bark

Danish hearts  - Make them with real birch bark!

A teeny tiny 1 1/4" Danish woven heart basket made using real birch bark! Find a birch bark tree with the bark peeling off, strip it and make hearts for the Winter Holidays.

And these hearts are some of my favorites!
