(Sometimes I wish our tv wasn't there because I think it ruins my pictures!)
I've never decorated for Valentine's day before, but pinterest inspired me to change up some of my Winter decorations. Last weekend I made a few things and I love how they all turned out.
Here's some close ups:
I made the one on the left by gluing candy hearts to a styrofoam ball, sticking a skewer stick it in, filling a bucket I got in the dollar spot at Target with sand and putting it in it!
I filled a mason jar with the rest of the candy hearts.
The rosette ball was really easy too.
All you need is red streamers, a styrofoam ball and a glue gun.
Cut a piece about three or four feet long and fold it in half as you go.
Start twisting your streamer into a circle to form a little rose bud.
Keep twisting until you use all your piece. Put a large circle of glue on your styrofoam ball and place the flower on top.
This is a little time consuming, but my styrofoam ball wasn't too big so it didn't take too long.
This was an old vase that didn't match any of our stuff. I cut out squares of an old text book and used modge podge to cover the vase.
The banner is my favorite part! I've seen a few on pinterest and decided to make my own. It only took me about a half hour to make.
First I cut out my banner pieces from burlap. Then I cut out my hearts and glued them onto the burlap with my glue gun. I then used my sewing machine to sew the pendents onto a piece of twine.
I love how it turned out!
Here's a peek at what I made this weekend:
This skirt was definitely the hardest sewing project I've made yet. I can't wait to wear it this week!
Hope you had a nice weekend!
