My niece is turning 3 in a few days and I had to make her something that I knew she would love. She loves to pretend that she is Fiona and that she is married to Shrek. Shrek even paints her green! Anyways, she has lots of princess dresses, but has no Fiona ears so I knew I had to make her some! I added the flower so that they were girlified...they couldn't just be Shrek ears!
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!
