Little Notes of Love

This is a fun frame with little notes attached to glittery hearts to let someone know how much you love them!

I got the frame at a local thrift store and painted it to look white washed.
I cut out hearts from glittery paper with pinking shearts, attached a little message banner to the heart. I punched a hole in the top of the heart and used an eyelet. I attached these little love note hearts to the frame by threading them onto wire and stringing them across the frame.

Some of the messages include: "my true love", "i love your smile", "happy to be in love", "you make me laugh", "you mean the world to me".

Just a little something to display in my home to let my husband and kids know how much I love and adore them! Enjoy!

Valentine Pennant

This was so much fun to make. I had everything on hand. Love projects like that. I just used some cream colored card stock for the pennant, some red glitter paper for the heart, some pinking shears, some cream colored tulle, a little stitching on the sewing machine, and some pearls.

I used a twig for the handle and ribbon to tie the twig to the pennant.

Nylon Baby Headband and Bracelet

I made this soft nylon headband and a matching bracelet for a friend who's having a baby girl. I made the flower out of a minty green lace. Oh, I am loving these colors. It's refreshing from the traditional pink. Can't wait to give them to her!

Bubble Gum Necklaces

I stumbled across this adorable gumball necklace over at One Charming Party. Oh my goodness! I think I need to make a few of these for my girls to give their friends for Valentine's Day!

Book Page Lollie Garland

I made this fun Vintage inspired garland for my entry way yesterday. I used old book pages and accordian folded them and made some paper lollies. I then cut out some red hearts from some red foil paper that I had. Glued them to the centers and blinged them up with some silver glass glitter. I glued the lollies to some jute twine and tied tulle, ribbon, and lace along the jute.

I love it and hope you do too!

Rolled Burlap Heart Wreath

I am so happy today! Even if it is freezing outside, the sun is shining. My camera was covered under warranty and is back in working condition, and I made time to craft today!
I had so much fun making these rolled roses out of red burlap. I took an old wire hanger and shaped it into a heart and glued the rolled roses over the top. I added some red heart rhinestones to a few of the roses to add a little bit of Valentine sparkle.

I love, love how it turned out.

I love that I have a camera so that I can take pictures of it and share with all of you! Enjoy!
