Valentine for Oakland

 Yep, I like this city. So I made these to leave around for Valentine's Day, with the hope that those who find them will take them further into the city. The photo below shows the bottom.
These are easy to make, see basic materials below. You will need tape and an exacto knife, and the smallest pair of scissors you can find. print out what you like (simple shape GOOD), tape it to the wire, bend at a right angle, and make a curlicue, then feed the wire through the hole.
Looking into my crystal ball, I am hoping to post similar projects throughout the year. Let me know in comments if you have left art in your area.

And if you're near Lake Merritt in Oakland, look around...

Oh, hooray for your Valentine project, and thanks for showing us your wonderful art again!

Years ago you mailed me a Valentine-making kit to put in a public place, and I didn't do it. Yet. I doubt I'll do it this year either--I'm busy and it's only going to be 5ºF tomorrow (V-day), but you inspire me to think about doing some public art...

Big Heart to you!
