It's true...bare as bare can be, but it's not me that's nakie, but my Christmas tree!
I know, I know...I'm those people you see in March that can't stand to take it down.
I love the concept of bringing nature inside and those soft twinkly warm lights that fill the room with a glow just make me so happy, SO...I've justified keeping it up by altering it for several holidays.
However, I've stripped it down to nothing but its lights and now it's time to dress it up a bit with some lovin'...literally. I've decided to showcase 8 ornaments that I'll hand make for Valentine's Day as an offering of inspiration.
#1 Vintage Crochet Heart Ornament
Using the Cameo Silhouette Cutting Machine, I cut out 12 white cardstock hearts and 6 designer paper hearts and layered 2 white with 1 designer for thickness.
Ink the edges with Old Paper DI, inked the hand made leaves and crocheted 6 twine hearts.
Applied a small section of lace, hand rolled rose and a few buttons for decoration.
Here you can see what the hearts looked like
All together in one happy group.
I promise to take pictures of them on the tree as I go along AND I'll return to bring you 7 more ornament ideas for Valentine's Day for the TREE!
I thank you so much for stopping in to visit. You have no idea how happy you make me :)
Hugs n' Happy Inking...
