Here is my Valentines door hanger. I just finished it up today!
I had a hard time coming up with something that was not already on the web or in stores. I created a challenge for myself. What could I create that was simple, beautiful, and different? Also, what do I already have at home to make it for FREE!
I had cardboard form a diaper box, red paint, red knit jersey fabric, red/white gingham fabric, and moss.
Here is what I came up with. I "LOVE" it!
I started by cutting out letters from the cardboard box and painted them red.
While the paint dried I cut 1 inch strips of red fabric. I then gathered the fabric to make ruffles by using a wide strait stitch down the center.
I just used my hot glue gun to adhere the ruffles to the letters.
Using cardboard again, I cut out a heart shape to make the "O" in LOVE. I just hot glued the moss on.
I made 1 inch bias tape out of the red and white gingham fabric to use as a bow and string the letters together.
