I wanted a fast little project to do and I have a few 3x3 inch canvas squares, so I took one and made a little water color on it. Well, I'm not that good at water color so once it dried, I stitched a little bunny and tulip on it. It's cute for it's little size and looks better in real life. I might have to try this on one a little bigger. Maybe I can put some magnets on it and stick it to my fridge...as if I don't have enough magnets to begin with. =)
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
