Red and Black Valentine Vignette

I put together this red and black vignette. I wanted something bright, dark,  soft, romantic and whimsical.  The vase is covered in round, glitter dots, that I cut out from some tissue paper and mod podged  to the vase. I put black tulle inside and topped it with this feather ball.
This is a big card that I gave my husband in 2006 and I wanted to use it, since it is red and black. I also made this tulle heart wreath. I used a coat hanger and shaped it into a heart and used about a roll of tulle. I cut the tulle in 3 inch strips and tied them around the coat hanger. I found this heart at Hobby Lobby and added it to the wreath.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day!!

Handmade Valentine Gift-Cherub Necklace and Ring

I made this necklace and ring with the same wooden hearts and that paper bag that I used for the cloche here. On both pieces I used Glossy Accents(a 3-dimensional gloss)to make it shiny.

Upcycled Wipes Containers

Happy Friday. I had these two wipes containers and I wanted something pretty that I could store bags, napkins, etc. and keep in my car. I covered them with this pretty duct tape that I have. Don't ya'll love all the pretty duct tape that they make now?
Anywhooo,I painted the tops with chalkboard paint so I can change out the containers to something different when I need to.
Happy Friday.

Valentine Heart Rings with Bling

I made these heart rings with homemade chalkboard paint. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a bag of wooden hearts, packs of stickers and the rings. I already had the acrylic paint and the color I used, which was perfect for Valentine's Day is called, "Lipstick Red" by Folkart.

Here is what I used:
  • Unsanded Grout(Home Depot)
  • Folkart Acrylic Paint(Lipstick Red)
  • Plastic Cup to mix in
  • Paint Stick
Because this was such a small project, I didn't do any measuring. I just mixed it until I had the consistency that I wanted. I gave each wooden heart two coats of paint and then the fun began.

No fingernails will be shown in this demonstration. (I am not a Hand Model)LOL

This heart was painted with regular chalkboard paint and a sparkly rhinestone glued to it.
On this ring I had to put an "M" on it.LOL
This heart came out of a pack of buttons that I glued to the ring base.
I hope you liked my rings. Have a great day.

Valentine Decorations

I found this cherub at Wal-Mart and when I saw the heart on it, I knew what I wanted to put on it.
I bought some rhinestone stickers from Hobby Lobby and did this. This is mine and my husbands initials. Am I blushing??

Another Dollar Tree Cloche

Valentine Cloche 

 I wanted something a little different with this cloche and I came up with this.
This trash can was already red, so I didn't have to spray paint it. Dollar Tree is starting to carry colored ones now and that makes me happy. I cut a small block of floral foam and glued it to the top and I cut the heart picks shorter and inserted those into the foam. I had some white marabou and glued that around the floral foam.
I had a heart shaped mirror, so I put the cherub on it and added some heart scatter pieces.
I finally found something to put under my other cloche. I found this cute little cherub and painted it pink.
Have an awesome day.
