The past couple of days, along with some other craft projects, I've made a couple of Valentine's crafts to make our apartment a little more festive (because the party lights just aren't enough I guess...). Today I wanted to share my two little Valentine's Day projects with y'all :o)
In yesterday's Enchantment Tuesday I shared a embroidery hoop wreath that I loved so yesterday I decided to make my oen Valentine's embroidery hoop.
I started with an old t-shirt Brandon originally donated to our cleaning supplies.
I cut out a big square and put it in the embroidery hoop, pretty simple.
Then I cute some hearts out of leftover red felt (used for Christmas ornaments) and the word "Love" out of my trusty old dictionary. I didn't have any glue except Mod Podge so I used that to attach the hearts and word and it worked fine. I think its cute hanging in our room.
I planned on making a Valentine's wreath last week but ended up making a Ribbon Wreath instead. So, on Monday morning at 6am I made our Valentine's wreath. I did not get up this early just to make this wreath but got up for school, got the call it was cancelled, was too awake to go back to bed, and needed something to do.
For my 6am wreath project I used a wreath we made out of my grandparents grapevines for the wedding. I made flowers out of doilies (left over from our wedding) and attached them with florist wire. Finally, I made a heart out of wire and random pink beads and attached it.
It's so nice to have another wreath on the door. It looked so empty and sad after taking down the Christmas wreath. Perhaps I'll start on my Valentine's today...
