Well, it’s Monday morning and I have a winner of the bunting – it is number 9 -
Now Helena doesn’t have to wait! I’ll get this in the mail as soon as I get your address Helena – thank you for commenting!
Here is another Valentine’s idea that I made a few years ago -
This was a Valentine’s gift I made for my hubbie. First I cut out all the hearts out of 1” pine boards – then I sanded them and painted them. Some of them have crackle paint and some have sponged paint…some are plain. Then I screwed them all together from the back. That was tricky! (To get everything straight) I learned a lot after making this project.
#1 – Something like 1/4” plywood would have worked better as it is lighter, stronger, and less prone to cracking with the grain of the wood.
#2 – I would have been better off mounting the hearts to a long skinny board on the back – for stability – wouldn’t even have been able to see it.
#3 – Shouldn’t make my hubbie gifts like this, as he really doesn’t know what to do with them – hehe! (He was a bit baffled by the dear head too!)
#3 – A person should be careful hanging something like this over a doorway as it can come crashing to the ground very easily resulting in much cursing, gluing…and hopefully no bruises…
