S's Yarny Heart Valentines
Now it was S's turn to decide on his home made valentine design. I thought for sure he was going to go for the Dino-Mite necklaces. But he's been a yarny boy lately so we shouldn't have been surprised that he picked this cool wrapped heart valentine.
As you can see, he made a red version for the dudes and a pink version for the girls. I found this idea on a very cool new web site, Family Chic, via The Crafty Crow.
We started out with the textured floral wire, that we bent into a heart shape. Then I cut off pre-measured lengths of the sparkly yarn for S to use on each heart. Then as he neared the end of the yarn, we tied it off and made a loop. We called them "LOVE Dream Catchers". We added little scroll banners that S cut out and wrote his Valentine greeting on and then tucked in between the yarn. His dad, of course, had to impress all of us by making some into a "real" dream catcher like design. Those fancy shmancy ones went to the teachers.
They turned out very pretty and the kids in class thought they were pretty cool.
A perfect crazy wrapped valentine for my crazy wrapped boy!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
