It's been a while since I played along with a Kreative Koncept sketch since they go through facebook with their challenges now. It also helps that the weather has been yucky and I finally feel like I have time to scrapbook. Anyways, the sketch was really busy. I ended up not putting in some hand stitching like I originally planed. I know I like my pages when they end up being more simple than over worked.
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!
