So I made some princes to go with the princesses I made at Christmas time for my niece's birthday. I only had four peg men body's so I had to be picky. Of course I had to make her favorite, Shrek. I couldn't resist making the Beast. I thought about making his human form, but I wanted the challenge of making him in the Beast form. Did you know his name is Adam? Just doesn't have the same ring as Beast. Anyways, I love how he turned out. He makes me smile every time I look at him. I had to make prince Charming (I figured he could also pass for Eric with the black hair) and then I decided to do prince Phillip because I thought he would be the most generic looking prince and could pass for prince Ferdinand or Flynn, even though Flynn has a little bit of facial hair.
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!
