Valentine Sundaes Ornament #5

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!

 Oodles

 Sweetheart

 Tons

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. 
 Have a wonderful day!!

Hello Q
Wow! The Minckler Tree, certainly one of a kind and just fabulous, I doubt anyone in the world could match this for originality, you have once again allowed your creativity to take flight and the result is unparalleled. Your creations are wonderful memories and I do hope they will stand the test of time for many years.

You have such vision Lisa - such talent. I cannot understand why you will not write your own craft book. - You are every bit as talented as Lord Tim!! I love your sundaes - probably my favorite. Your tree is outstanding and I know you love keeping it in your house. Just think, you have all the ornaments you need for next year's tree!

So inventive, so creative - your ice-cream sundaes look delicious (properly delicious, not just my usual "crafty" delicious!!)... beautiful work and a beautiful, beautiful tree. Even as a Valentines naysayer I'm enchanted, and very tempted for next year!!

jumping up and down! DUDE! I channeled my inner Lisa tonight and made my own ornaments! Thought of you! Of course I didn't watch Dexter while I rolled roses, but I did watch Desperate House Wives! I am so excited for your tree! I decorated our stocking holders and it makes me happy! Love this season.

is it a gold or silver bacon ornament? that is IMPRESSIVE right there! he is right! Bacon looks good next to roses! ;-)

Oh my goodness, that is just stunning. I too don't really do Valentine's but the idea of a tree for different occasions is brilliant.

Lisa S. said...

Lori said...

Brilliant! Love the - oh, my gosh is it really a - plastic cup transformation. Also am thrilled with the idea of a Valentine tree - how fun is that?

Tracy said...

Okay, first off the tree looks amazing. Second you gotta tell me where you got the bacon ornament. It's my hubbys #1 food group! :-) So you didn't know your own strength with that cup huh. A dalek---hee hee Too funny. Thanks for the giggles today Twang! Hugs!

You have the most gorgeous tree I have ever seen Lisa. I cannot believe you made all of these. If I came to visit I would be embarrassed to call myself a crafter after this. I bow to the Queen! The little sundae cups are amazing - I'm trying to pick each one apart and note all the little ingredients. Truly amazing Lisa! I laughed when I saw the bacon ornament. I have a swag in my kitchen that is all food ornaments and I have a bacon and eggs!
