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!
Love these colors! I couldn't find your e-mail address anywhere so,in response to your question about the refinished desk I did...I cut the fabric pieces big enough to cover the front of the drawers, put modge podge on the drawer,then put the fabric over top. I also put another good layer of modge podge on top too. Remove the handles before you do all that, so at the very end when it's all dry, you can put them back on top of the fabric. Hope that helps, let me know. I'd love to see how yours turns out :)ReplyDelete
Very cute quilt!!! Thanks for swinging by my blog. As for the chess piece chocolate mold. I bought it at a store in Richardson, Texas called the Cake Carousel. I don't know where you are, or if they ship, BUT I also saw that Amazon had the same mold for about the same price I purchased it for (2.29). This is the amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/CHESS-PIECES-Miscellaneous-Candy-Chocolate/dp/B000EJM3ZM I knew there had to be a reason other than Twilight for that mold. ;o)ReplyDelete
