Did you watch the big game yesterday?
I’m thrilled the Eagles won so Congrats to them and all of Philly!
But anyways, I am back again today with another project.
This is an easy project and doesn’t really take a lot of time either which is a win win!
-Hot Glue Gun
-Pallet (bought this at Wal-Mart)
-Glitter or stickles (optional)
I’m bringing back the felt rosettes that were pretty popular a few years ago.
They are quick and easy to make and they always turn out so well!
Begin by cutting the felt in half long wise. Then cut each half in thirds.
Cut each square in a circle. You can cut it even or cut it a little curvy to give the petals of the flowers more shape.
Then cut a spiral from the outside to the inside of the circle.
Place a little bit of hot glue on the end of the felt and roll it inward.
Continue rolling until there is a flap left which is the very center of the circle.
Place hot glue on the center area and then glue the flap down to hold the flower together.
Here is the flap glued down.
Continue making all the rosettes until you have the desired amount.
I used 2 1/2 sheets of felt for a total of 14 flowers.
If your heart is larger you will need more flowers.
Glue the rosettes onto the palette in a heart shape.
I chose to only make the outline of the heart but you could fill it in if you’d like.
I didn’t want just the heart so I wrote the word love under it in pencil.
I then used a white paint pen to go over the word.
I was thrilled with it just like this but if you’ve been around here long enough, you know I also love some glitter so….
I pulled out some of my Stickles and glittered up the word love.
And it was just the right amount of glitter that it needed.
And that’s it!
I love how it came out!
I hung it above my faux mantle along with my painted bud vases
and I just love the simplicity of the look.
Have you decorated for Valentine’s Day yet?
