A few years ago I had received something that came in this really nice sparkly pink tissue paper. I saved the paper because it looked cool and I knew I would use it for something. Well, a few years have gone by and now I finally am using it. I got this nice frame for a picture of my baby girl that lets the picture look like it is floating, but the walls in my apartment are so bland in color so I had to do something. Then I remembered the tissue paper and thought I would try placing it between the layers of glass and I really like its crinkly look. I might just have to get more frames like this and try to find some more cool tissue paper.
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!
