Valentine Altered Art

Who doesn't love a deal? Nobody that I know! Including me. So when I found 2 canvas prints on sale for 80% off, I had to have them. I decided to have a little fun and change them up for Valentine's Day.
The first one started off like this...
I used a paper heart shaped doily as a stencil to add a heart...


Then I painted a banner across the canvas...
I added a little of the colors from the banner to the heart & painted the word, LOVE...




For the second canvas, I kept it a little more simple.
I just focused on adding a little color to the basket by filling it with flowers.





Don't be scared to alter art. Especially if you spend less than $4 on each piece!

Measuring Up...A DIY Bracelet

Wrap bracelets have become very popular over the last few years. Here’s an alternative to the common leather strap that will measure up to be quite the fashion statement.

Supplies:
Measuring Tape
Ribbon
Jewelry Charm
Ribbon Ends Jewelry Fastener
Scissors
Pliers
E6000 Glue
Super Glue

Cut the metal ends off of the measuring tape. Cut the measuring tape so that it wraps tightly around your wrist twice. You will want it tight because the ribbon end fasteners will add length to the bracelet.

Place the charm on the center point of the measuring tape.

Fold the measuring tape in half and cut a slit ¼ inch away from the end of the charm.

Thread ribbon through the ends of the charm and through the cut slits.


Tie a knot in the ribbon on the back side of the measuring tape and secure with a dot of super glue.



Add a small amount of E6000 glue to the inside of the ribbon end fasteners. Insert the ends of the measuring tape into the fasteners and clamp down with pliers. Allow the glue to dry completely.


That’s a wrap!
