So after I awoke from my Home Tour induced coma on Sunday, I realized Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away. I don't have much in the way of decorations, maybe because the whole red/pink thing could make me crazy reeeal quick. Luckily as of today, I will only have to deal with it for a mere 15 days:)
I found these cute felt button hearts at JoAnn, and I just strung twine through them and then wrapped them around a jar filled with sixlets candy:) I love that pic of my babies, when they were babies... :( sniff sniff....
Had this little ceramic house forever, card made by my sweet niece:)
Then I decided to get my craft on:) Here are the materials you'll need if you want to craft along with me:)
About 1yd. of felt (I used white, but pink or red would be cute too)
1 foam heart (I got mine at JoAnn)
And yes, chocolate. My sis gags that I like 3 Musketeers. Honestly, I can only eat half of it before my brain freaks out on the mystery that is "nougat". Anyway, whatever your sugar of choice is, you'll need it.
I used a glass that was a little over 3" wide as my template.
Start cutting about a million circles. Eat some sugar, then cut out a million more. I don't exactly know how many I cut, but it was almost the entire yd of felt. **to make it quicker, I doubled my felt and cut 2 at a time:) I'm so smart:)
Then take your circle and fold it in half, then in half again.
Then stick a straight pin through the bottom of the flower into the foam heart. (yikes!someone needs a manicure!)
Continue doing this for what seems like 7 years. Really it took me one episode of Hoarders:)
Tie with a big ole beauty of a ribbon....
Every day should be Happy Heart day doncha think?
