my CRAFTERNOON that I'm hosting this Saturday. I've invited several people over to do some Valentine crafting. Thought I'd put a quick little preview up. The first is a quick little Valentine's Day garland that can be hung from a window (please don't pay any attention to the ugly poles in the background) or it would be cute hung from your mantle. I used several different papers, printed music and then stamped letters onto the last layer and joined it with ribbon.
We are also going to make these Sweetgum Ball Glitter Stars. I made them in silver for Christmas but thought a bunch in red would be pretty for Valentine's Day. (note to self: Save these for next Christmas!)
And last but not least, a Felt Petal Heart Wreath. I haven't quite finished this one yet, but I guess that's the whole idea of a Crafternoon.....to learn, swap ideas and play around. I needed a base for my Heart Wreath. Joann's was sold out of the foam wreaths (which cost $4.99 and I didn't really want to spend any $$$). So I found a piece of foamcore board which I had bought at a damage sale for 47cents . I cut it into an 8" heart shape and hot glued the felt petals onto the base. I'll hang it with a sheer ribbon - maybe in my kitchen window!
