Okay, I lied...
I said I'd make 8, but I'm afraid I'm stopping at 5 types of ornaments on the tree.
I'm so happy with these, I can't imagine trying to make anything else and I think our tree is stuffed full sufficiently to bring in the holiday o' love.
I wanted to share with you how I made these and they're CHEAP! Almost everything came from The Dollar Store except for the Washi tape and the red yarn.
I Love You
I bought a set of 5 clear plastic cups for $1 and decided to fill them with my old ribbon cardboard reels.
When you tear the ends off and wrap them in white cardstock, they make the perfect ice cream to fill the cups.
Ribbon was then glued around the top edge and crinkles of brown grocery sack added for the "fudge or chocolate" element.
12 hand made roses were then glued on for the cool whip, a 1/2 of a straw, a cherry "like" topping added and then a love you tag with yarn bow and some word blocks for sentiment and that's that. I also added some alternating strips of Washi tape to outside of the glass for decoration too.
Super light to hang from a tree and I think super cute and fun!
This sundae had a mishap. As I was pushing the ribbon reel down in, I pressed too hard and broke off the stand so I flipped it upside down and created this variation instead. For those of you Dr.Who fans out there, I rather think it looks like a Valentine Dalek.
Maybe there's a few ideas in here to inspire you to make your own Valentine ornaments.
Hope you've enjoyed your visits and I thank you so much for coming by to check out this post.
