Welcome to all my dear friends! I have several new friends following and I’m so glad that you have come!

I thought that I would show some of the Valentines projects that I have been working on, so here we go.

I was really excited for this new project because I got to use my stash of German Glass Glitter. It is so fun to work with it really make your projects look divine.

My choice was the word love. I didn’t have any stencils so I free handed them, on and old gift box. With the help of a paper punch I think that they turned out nicely.

Using German Glass glitter I soon found that gloves are a must, it can cut you. I applied a small amount of glue a little at a time with a sponge paint brush and then sprinkled the glitter on with a spoon. I let it dry about an hour before I started to thread the string on it for hanging.

After I hung it I was disappointed that the letters didn’t show up as good as I would have liked. l thought well maybe I should have used gold glitter. But I wanted the silver touch. So here is what I did.

I cut an oval out of scrape book paper and it really made the letters sing. The pictures just do not give the beautiful patina that the letters have. Sorry I wish it showed better. I can’t wait to see the silver tarnish some, to give it that antique look.

Here is a fun little garland project that I did with my Grandchildren. We first cut out hearts from old tissue paper, there was lots left after Christmas time.

I sewed 2 hearts together on my sewing machine at a time, then pulled out some thread and sewed more. Of course the length is up to you and where to hang them. The Grandchildren knew right where.

On the doors . . .

and hanging from the ceilings. I think that if I would have let them they would be hanging from the rafters of the house. It was a fun easy project that we enjoyed doing together.

I hope that I gave you a little inspiration to craft and decorate for Valentine’s Day. I will be showing you a few more in later posts.

What Valentines day craft projects have you been working on, I would love to hear back!
