Hi All! With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I have a couple more Valentine related crafts up my sleeve. And I can't wait to share them with you! First up is a cheezy yet cute Valentine Topiary.
All the materials I used were terra cotta flower pots, paint, paintbrush, pencil, scissors, two unsharpened pencils, yarn, glue gun, two empty ribbon rolls, two Valentine Pillows, and heart fillers. You can substitute materials, or leave out others, totally up to you!
The first thing I did was paint my pots, I decided to paint the actual pot white, and paint the saucer underneath pink.
|Paint the pots white|
|I used patio paint, which was perfect for the terra cotta pots|
|Paint just inside the edge|
|I used transfer paper to trace my letters onto the pot|
|Itty bitty paintbrush and pink paint|
|I wrapped an unsharpened pencil in yarn|
|All my supplies|
|Make a mark with your pencil through the hole so that you can find the center|
|Stick the pencil onto the saucer with hot glue|
|Slide on the pots|
|I used an empty ribbon spool as a space filler|
|Cut a hole in the bottom of the pillow|
|Slide the pillow onto the pencil|
|I used purple hearts from Target as a space filler|
I love how they turned out, even with my incredibly unstable painting hand!
