Valentine’s Day Charmer

It is Day 3 of ‘14 Days of Love’ and I’m excited to share what I have been making!  I originally went for doing ONE craft, but Hobby Lobby SUCKED me in and I walked away with a few more ideas. I figured I’d put all of them together for today’s feature party lead by Ashley at Cherished Bliss.

If you missed the first two days, you can see
Desiree' @ The 36th Avenue for her Valentine Frame & Emily @ 52 Mantels for her sweet heart banner.  Tomorrow you won’t want to miss Mandy @ Sugar Bee Crafts!
‘Ring Bling’
I happen to have some blank filigree rings left from a purchase on Etsy at
Poppy Loves Paris and I saw some cute roses at Hobby Lobby so I simply glued a rose on and Voila!! A Valentine ring!! I also added a rhinestone for a little bling.

‘1st Love Centerpiece’ 
I had some red felt from an old project and went to.. you guessed it! Hobby Lobby for some cardboard stencils, white paint & a sponge brush!  I basically just cute the letters out into squares, threw some candles I had from Christmas that worked out color wise and some Hershey Kisses and there’s a simple/SWEET centerpiece.

‘2nd Love Centerpiece’
I have no idea where this idea came from but I saw this cute grey tote and near by were some iron on letters.  My mind started churning and I snatched them up along with some heart sequin iron on’s to match! I hit up the local grocery and ran across some beautiful roses and got some florist foam.  Here we go!

Easy steps: Ironed on the letters and hearts.  I used a trash bag to line the inside so that the florist foam wouldn’t ruin the tote or seep out (you’re suppose to soak the foam in a flower food water for a while).  Then, I added my roses!

My original project I intended to do for this 14 Days of Love was to make a
‘Valentine Wreath’
My supplies include red and white pom-pom yarn, a Styrofoam wreath, some cute glitter letters and happened to have some
Pick Your Plum tags to wrap it up!

You have to wrap this yarn very close together and tight.  I’m not even kidding when I say that I pulled a muscle in my armpit trying to get this thing done.  I used strands of the pom yarn and strung my
Pick Your Plum tags on it using the red and silver glitter letters! I tied the yarn around the finished wreath to create the Happy Valentine’s Day Strands!  I wish I could say I shaped and welded the wreath hanger myself, but its also from Hobby Lobby!

Such cute crafts!

Emily @ 52 Mantels said...

Four projects AND a pulled armpit muscle?! OVER-ACHEIVER!!! Haha, just kidding!

I love all 4 projects!! The gray tote as vase? Genius! How did you think up that?! It's such a cute idea and you could use that concept for a lot of occasions. Awesome! And, I'm kind of a wreath junky, so the wreath might be my favorite (but, that's a tough call!).

Great job (you over-acheiver, you!) ;-)
