With so many Valentine’s Day treats marketed to women, it is hard to find something good to give your man for Valentine’s Day that isn’t super cheesy. Actually, my hubby could probably care less, he would probably rather just have a nice dinner than anything else. Or the “free pass” for him not to have to do anything for Valentine’s Day – But that’s Not Happening!
I still wanted to show him how much I appreciate him, so I made this manly Valentine’s Day Bouquet for him. It has some of his favorites candies and some miniatures from the liquor sto’.
I also made another smaller version too with the left over candies. For this one I also made a monogram out of vinyl and stuck it on a beer mug.
If you make one for your sweetie, let me know how they like it! :)
Valentine’s Day is in the air! I love seeing everyone’s cute ideas out in blogland on their various Valentine Day projects. So many sweet receipes, crafts and cards to create! I am a complete girly girl so all the pink hearts, flowers, chocolate and glitter gets me all excited! I am working on romancing my mantle up a bit and thought the best place to start was with a festive banner.
This “Be Mine” one is my favorite. I told my Valentine I made it just for him… he rolled his eyes ;)
I had some red and natural colored burlap left over from Christmas so I used that to cut out the pennant shapes, which are strung with a lace trim. For these with the red glitter letters, I used my silhouette to cut out letters on double-sided adhesive, secured on the burlap, and glittered it up.
For this banner, instead of using red glitter letters I created a stencil with my silhouette and stenciled the letters in with black paint.
I just LOVE how they all turned out! So cute! I kept one and gave one to each of my sisters. If you want one, then you can purchase one at my Etsy shop here.
Until next time, friends!
When I stumbled upon this wreath on Pinterest, I knew that I had to try and recreate my own version! I have been loving everything burlap and am always looking for another reason to dress up my door, so this was just perfect! As it turned out I ended up having all the materials already so the project ended up being quick, easy and free. Gotta love that! Plus an added bonus was that I was able to finish the whole wreath during Tilly’s morning nap. Makes you love it more, yes??
First, I untwisted 2 wire hangers and shaped them to form two halves of a heart. I then cut about 3/4 yard of burlap into 3″ in strips and sewed the material onto the wire hangers. After adding as much material to the frame as you want, twist together the two halves to complete the heart. It would look beautiful just like that, with a cute ribbon tied to it.
I can’t get enough of the little rosettes, so it was a must to add some. To make my rosettes, I used lace, pink tulle, pink felt and a white & pink patterned fabric. I made a couple different sizes and hot glued them onto my wreath. To complete my lovely flowers I secured them with a pearl tipped pin in the center of each bud. So pretty!!
I just love this wreath, and there are so many variations that you can play around with! The only problem I have with it is that it is so gorgeous that I want it on my front door for the world to see, but I also want to keep it inside where I can enjoy it!
