So this post comes later than I had figured that it would, because my Valentine surprised me by taking off work halfway through the day : ) Needless to say, but I will, the day did not go as I had originally planned, but in fact much better : D I love you, Stephen!
And Happy Valentine’s Day to you! Let me take you on a tour of all things pink in our house : )
This is the fabric that I used in several projects:
My first project was a banner…
I think I’ve decided that my window frame should always have some sort of banner hanging across the top of it : )
I tried soaking the filters in cups of watery paint.
But once I took them out, they were much fainter pink than I had imagined.
So I soaked them a second time, differently than the first: I soaked them (1) one at a time, (2) for seconds instead of minutes, (3) and used much less water than the first time around. It made a difference!
I used that same fabric from before and some coffee filter flowers to make a wreath for the garage door.
Okay, now ready for my favorite Valentine’s craft?! I was inspired by the shape of a POM Wonderful bottle. First step to this project, drink the delicious pomegranate juice : ) easy step to follow.
Empty bottle…good : ) So next I cut the bottle in half and used Styrofoam to fit a paint stirrer up in it.
Then, I made crate paper flowers and hot glued them to the bottle part.
I used a strip of crate paper a little longer than the length of my hand. The center of the flower was created by the folded over portion of the strip. This was only a couple inches long. The rest of the strip I cut into fringe. Then I just rolled it up!
I stuck the paint stirrers in Styrofoam to hold them in plastic cups I painted pink. Can you tell I was trying to make the whole project without having to buy a thing? ; )
POM Wonderful topiary!
So here are my Valentine’s Shelves:
Baby girl’s feet = heart
Hope you all had a beautiful, lovely day!
