VALENTINE'S DAY HOP




WELCOME TO MY BLOG AND THE VALENTINE'S DAY HOP
OUR ONLY REQUIREMENT WAS TO NOT USE
PINK OR RED.
AT FIRST I MUST ADMIT THIS HAD ME
STUMPED A BIT.
WHEN THIS HOLIDAY IS CENTERED AROUND THOSE
TWO COLORS.
BUT AFTER A FEW HOURS ON PINTEREST
HERE IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH.

THERE IS ALSO A GREAT PRIZE PACKAGE
ON TO THE PROJECTS.......


THIS FIRST PROJECT IS THE DOLLAR STORE
RELIGIOUS CANDLES .MY STORE SELLS THESE
PLAIN ONES AND THEY WERE PERFECT FOR THIS PROJECT.
ALL THESE CUTS ARE FROM THE SILHOUETTE ONLINE STORE
EVEN THE FONT
 THIS IS HOW I HAVE THEM ON MY FIREPLACE

ONLY THE "L" AND "E" 
GOT THE EXTRA HEART ON THE SIDES
I USED BLACK VINYL 
 AND SOME TWINE AT THE TOPS.
AND THAT'S ALL SIMPLE BUT IT MAKES S 
STATEMENT .

SECOND PROJECT AGAIN DOLLAR STORE 
HERE I COME.
TWO SQUARE VOTIVE HOLDERS
SOME CLEAR GLASS BEADS
AND BATTERY VOTIVE CANDLES.
THE DOILIES I HAD FROM BEFORE  AND
SOME TWINE AND FEW CHARMS.
THE HEART IS JUST CUT OUT OF A OLD BOOK AND INKED IN
YELLOWS AND BROWNS.
(NOT REDS....LOL)

LIT UP.

VERY SUBTLE BUT ELEGANT 

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.
HERE IS THE LINE UP IN CASE YOU GET LOST

Great home decor projects! Love the large candles with the pretty font and the small votives are so clever. I may have to scrap lift that idea. TFS. :)
