Handmade Button Heart Decoration

4 Aug

My friend bought me this cute heart decoration for my birthday which gave me the idea to attempt to make my own. I also had some cream buttons that were perfect for this project.

I started by feeding the buttons onto thin wire. Feeding the wire through the holes or through the loop depending on the button type.

I then fed a strip of galvanised wire through the back of the looped buttons to give structure to the decoration and make it easier to bend into a sturdy shape.

I then attached the two ends of the galvanised wire by twisting the ends together. Once the wires were secured I bent the wire into a heart shape.

To make the decoration even sturdier I took some of the thinner wire and wrapped it between each button to secure them further to the galvanised wire. To finish I attached some beige ribbon to the back of the heart decoration and completed with a bow.

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……

Eat Me Cake and Food Toppers – Free Template

26 Feb

I’ve been busy this week making and designing all sorts of things for a Mad Hatters Tea Party I’m attending in April (I’ll keep you posted on everything we make!!). Today I’ve made some Eat Me Cake and Food Toppers so I though I’d share them with you and include some free templates if anyone fancied having a go (templates attached at the bottom of this blog). If anyone has any Mad Hatter Tea Party ideas I’d love to hear them, you can also take a look at my pinterest board to see where I’ve been getting my inspiration!

I managed to get the swirl shape of the flag by using doubled sided tape and rolling the cocktail stick along the flag.

Easy Peasy Bird Clips

30 Jan

Its been a while since I published my last post! I’ve been busy making and creating which i will update you on very soon. But in the mean time I though I’d share with you these easy peasy Bird clips I made way before Christmas. I used mine to hang my Christmas Cards up with. I Tied garden string around the banister and attached my Christmas Cards using these. Since then I’ve been using them to organise my scrap fabrics and papers together and I’m sure you can find a million other uses for them so they don’t need to go into the loft with all the other Christmas decorations.  They are really simple, so simple in fact  you probably don’t need a tutorial to show you how to make them………but I made one anyway! Hope you like it…..
