26 Mar

handmade lantern made from glass jarsIt’s been a while since my last post but I’ve been busy making these cute handmade lanterns. Made from glass jars, spray paint and garden string they are really easy and inexpensive to make. With summer not to far away I think these would look great scattered around the garden with tea lights…..what do you think???

How to make a string heart charm decoration…

11 Mar

I love little heart charms and door knob decorations and I’ve been trying to think of a simple handmade project I could do and share with you.

A few weeks ago I blogged about Handmade Valentine Gifts and came across Michele’s Sunkissed Heart Wreath.

Michele’s tutorial inspired me to come up with my own string hearts, Michele uses balloons to create a hollow heart wreath but I’ve created solid heart decorations using built up cardboard, I built the cardboard up to create a 3D effect and I’ve include a tutorial on how to create your very own.

I’ve made 2 heart decorations, a smaller one as a key ring charm and a larger heart as a door knob decoration.

Let me know what you think……
