I know it is so close to Valentines day, and almost everyone is done with any decor you may be creating/putting out. But I made these a week or so ago and just never got around to posting about them.
You will need
crepe paper color of your choice
Styrofoam hearts on stick (dollar tree)
For the pink one, I cut strips to about 14". if you want them a different size, cut accordingly.
I started to wrap the roses and you can find the full tutorial on my post about my
for Christmas. You can see that technique here. The only difference is that I used pink and made a heart shape first, then the white around it. I actually cut the pink a bit shorter after I had it glued on. I also trimmed the white to make it more even and circular. (OK fine, cause I am a hairdresser and I love to cut things! Happy??)
I bought a pack of hard foam hearts on red sticks at the dollar store. I just carefully twisted off the heart from the stick and turned it around so that the bottom of the heart is now the 'arrow' in the front, and carefully pushed it into the foam and then hit it with a dollop of hot glue.
(secret: I was a bit tired of making this one, so the back is actually
unfinished! Maybe next year I will fill it in!)
Easy as pie!
My parents got engaged on Valentines day in 1960. My
Mom made this ceramic heart box for my Dad's Mother.
I never even knew it existed until my Grandfather passed away and my Mom and I had started to clear some of their stuff out. I usually keep this on my guest room dresser, close to the back so it does not fall. It did get a chip somehow in the last few years.
I have not gotten around to fixing it yet. Can you see it on the top of the rose?
If you like this, Pin it and you can make it next year!!
