Valentine Jars {my grandmas jars}

 These jars came from the sevreal thousand jars my Grandma had,  THOUSANDS!  I love that I got some!  Some of her bottles are quit old and so pretty.  I love collecting jars and rather then let them sit on a shelf waiting for canning season, I decided to dress a few of mine up for a sweet reminder of my special grandma.

♡Love ♡

Today i am sharing a very fun and simple idea!  I LOVE printables.  They are so fun to decorate with.  These lovely ladies that make them and share them for free are GREAT!  Go HERE to print yours.  I love double duty crafts and this is one of them.  I cut the board around Halloween and am excited its something that can be switched out year round.  I email my prints to my local print shop.  I have them printed on card stock and sometimes on glossy card stock.  I like the quality and I like that i dont have to mess with my printer that never works lol:)  I cut my board on mdf wood but you dont need to have it made on this.  you can use a clipboard too or I think one made of cardboard painted white would be soooo adorable....hummm I might have to make one!  really anything would look great!  Below are the supplies I used.  I found my washi tape at walmart for $1, the ribbon at $ Tree, tule at walmart a roll is a $1,  and i used a hole punch I have.  I added my washi tape to the top and bottom of my page then punched my holes and added it to my plaque.  I hope you have fun making yours!

Coffee Filter Wreath Tutorial

Aren't these just beautiful? my sister made one and i decided i needed one for myself.  these are incredibly easy and so affordable.  i spend maybe 3$ on the whole project.   
i started off with cutting a round wreath form from poster board.  my sister used cardboard which i think is probably the way to go, but i didnt have any and im incredibly inpatient so i went with the poster board.  then i placed it on my living room carpet and poked holes all over it.  i bought the coffee filters at my grocery store for cheap cheap.  i think they were only $1.50.   
grab the center of each coffee filter and push up to make a cone then twist the end and push though each hole you created with your pincel.  SO FANCY!:)
after each hole is filled i flipped mine over and tugged on each one to make sure they were all secure.  then i poked a hole at the top and added a jute sting for hanging.
i went onto pinterest and found these CUTE cupcake toppers and got them printed at my local print shop on cardstock.  HERE is the link for the free printable.  i found my mini clothespins and walmart.  the jute sting you can find at any dollar store by all the painting supplies.  i cut around the designs and then added them to my sting and tied them on to the back of the wreath.  i am obsessed with how easy and truly CHEAP this is to make!  swoon!

Heart string art

Have you ever made "nail string art"? It's so fun and easy:)
 It's freezing cold outside and most of my family is sick so my oldest daughter and I picked out a few scrap pieces of wood to create these cute shelf sitters. 
We started by painting and distressing our boards.  Then we cut out a large heart and small heart out of paper.  We placed the paper on the board as a template. We used little finishing nails and tapped them into place. After you have done that remove your paper and tie your yarn around one nail.  I wrapped mine around the whole heart first then started randomly laceing my yard around the nails until I liked the way it looked then tied it off.  So easy! Aren't they cute?!
