Tis the season to start showing some love! I was looking in my box of Valentine decorations when I realized that I don't have any Valentine decorations. So with my budget being around $0.00 I decided it was time to shop in my house!
Supplies needed:
Cardboard                                                                                                       Ribbon/twine                                                                                                  Glue                                                                                                                                               Embellishments (old shirts, beads, felt, buttons)
I started with a cardboard box, left over from our Christmas packages, it doesn't have to be perfect you will be covering it! DSC07884 DSC07885  And then its time to start wrapping the twineDSC07887I knew I wanted to add fabric flowers to the bottom and so I didn't bother with wrapping it completely.DSC07895 Now it is time to gather the fun stuff. For me I used some old t-shirts I had and found some beads in a Christmas box.                                            DSC07896     I rolled some fabric flowers and placed them where I wanted them glued them down.DSC07902 I then added some beads in between the flowers and TA-DA! It is complete and within my budget!!DSC07912 I couldn't resist I had to make another one for my sister! This time I did ribbon and felt roses. For the price you can afford to share with the family and neighbors!DSC07911
