Now that we are in the month of January my thoughts turn to ‘Valentines Day’.
A day set aside for us to show the ones we love just how much we appreciate them.
I love Valentines Day. . .One might say, I’ve got heart!
So of course, the crafting has begun!
Thanks to Pinterest there are plenty of ideas to draw from.
So, I’m opening up my heart(s) to you.
Heart #1 is an ornament wreath heart. I had been collecting ornaments to make a Christmas wreath when I saw a heart one on my inspiration board. I needed more pinks so my friend, Joyce and I hit the after Christmas sales.
One of my Valentines displays will have pops of aqua so I threw some of my vintage aqua ornaments in amongst the pinks, silvers, and whites.
A dusting of silver glitter spray gives the newer ornaments a vintage feel.
You can’t go wrong with a dotted Swiss pink bow.
I hung it on my chippy white door for a photo, not sure where it will end up. Notice my little red shelf is empty. How could that be? lol!
Here was my inspiration from Pinterest. She gives a great tutorial so I’m just giving you the link. In case you want to make one.
Heart #2 is a framed cork heart.
I picked up a bag of corks a while back at a discount store. My Pinterest inspiration had painted the corks in various shades of pinks and reds. I thought it would be fun to glitter them. I just painted the top with Modge Podge and sprinkled with glitter. I let them dry well then covered a piece of cardboard to fit my frame with burlap and hot glued them on.
Oh how this baby shines!
The writing on the sides of the corks give it a Frenchy feel.
I didn’t have a lot of corks so my heart is a tall thin primitive heart. The kind of heart I love!
And here is my inspiration .
How about you? Do you have heart?
