Hey ALL! Hope everyone is enjoying this lovely day! It is quite beautiful here in the greater Seattle area and a bit crazy how nice it has been lately (despite a few stormy days). But really quite mild here in the Northwest. All of this sunshine makes me wanna get outside but that means no time for crafting…so the sun can wait I suppose! 🙂
I do have a confession though…I got to crafting several projects the other day, and upon finishing, I realized I hadn’t taken ANY how-to pics!! My apologies! I guess I am going to have to just walk you through it with no photos to help me along. It’s a good thing this one is quite easy!!! Let’s get to it!
I found this absolutely adorable arrow on clearance the other day at Hobby Lobby for only $5! FIVE BUCKS!!! I could not pass it up! Had no clue what I was going to do with it, but I knew I would find something fun! Along with arrow, I bought this super cute ribbon, and wooden appliques that are just so precious. Grab your scissors, hot glue gun, sewing machine, and some fun Valentine’s Day paper and let’s get started!
I ended up reusing this little bunting I had made last Valentine’s Day for this project. Basically, I hand cut circles and hearts and quickly ran them through the sewing machine. If you find this to be too hard (or you don’t have a sewing machine) simply find some twine or ribbon and glue your sweet little cut outs on it. Easy peesy!
Bust out those letter stamps you have used in the past and carefully stamp on “Happy Valentine’s Day” using a black ink so it is clearly visible. Don’t worry if you mess up, just try to line your letter back up and press firmly down. If it ends up a bit smudgy, no need to fret, it just adds character to your sign!!
Very last things is to glue everything on. Attach your lil’ garland to either end of the bottom of your arrow. Then, cut 2 – 24″ long pieces of your ribbon and glue an end to the front of your top arrow and to the bottom. Lastly, put your sweet little adornment on your arrow wreath where ever you please. Annnndddd…you are finished! For under $10, you made this easy peasy, cute as a button Arrow Wreath! Now you have something fun to hang on your door for the Holiday! 🙂 Thanks for following along!
