Now that all the holiday decorations are packed away for another year and my various stashes are organized and sorted through, I decided I needed to make some decorations to put through the house for Valentine's Day. I love decorating for the various holidays. After our fire, the smaller holidays, have been very neglected. I haven't worked as hard to refurbish our Valentine supplies.
I pulled out a bunch of stuff and then started in.
I just used a half a heart shell and a Victorian scrap and a rose and gold leaf garland for this.
These plain sparkly hearts got some Victorian scraps as well
and some pretty lace.
This feather heart wreath got some little white feathers and then I pulled out a lot of my little heart jewelry pieces and added those along with some loops of white pearls.
This little cupid cutie is made from a heart shaped candy tin, a clear candlestick for a base
and an old orphan doll head. I took light weight cardboard and cut out wing shapes
and hot glued white feathers and pieces of white and gold boa to them.
I attached wire to the wings and the wire is looped around the dolls neck.
I used a heavy duty adhesive to attach the wings to the back of the candy tin heart.
I used wire for arms/hands to hold the dowel stick arrow. I had some sculpey hearts I attached to the arrow end and a decorated heart and feathers to the opposite end. I printed out "TRUE LOVE" and glued that to cardboard before I glued it to the dowel stick. easy peasy!!
