Decorating for Valentine's Day
Hello 2017! Christmas has passed and with the new year starts the new round of holidays. Valentine's is quickly approaching and I decided for the new year I would decorate my house accordingly. Although I make many home decor items, I never decorate my own house! So, I made a few items to decorate my mantle and coffee table. First, I made a set of candle holders to go on my coffee table. I used candle stick holders and glass candle plates. I spray painted them all in metallic silver and glued them together. I got three large glass containers and tied tile. Ones around th and put large white pillar candles in them. Then I purchase four 5x7 gold frames. I took the backing off, removed the glass and cut vinyl stencils to make the word "love". A letter on each piece of glass and then I etched each piece. I glued the frames to make a box and set the glass back in. I cut a piece of foam board to go on the bottom and glued it in. The next thing I made were rose topiaries. I used a candle stick holder again and glued a styrofoam ball on top. Took the roses apart and placed them around the ball. I used a whole ball for one and a half ball for another. The last item I made was another set of candle holders, using candle stick holders again. I got round glass jars and glued small glass gens around each jar and glued them together. Overall I am happy with the look and can't wait to decorate for the next holiday! Oh, and most of the items I purchased from the Dollar Tree!
