So I decided to give project life a go. I thought it might be a fun way to use up my stash a bit. I have so many scraps of paper and embellishment bits, so I'm glad to put them to use. I'm really trying to use up some washi tape. I can't use it up fast enough. Of course, I may have added some new stuff as well. I just hope I don't fall too far behind. I already got a later start on it then I wanted. Let's see if I can get caught up a bit.
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!
