Can you have too many hearts on a Valentine project? Asking for a friend.
I don’t know why but when I saw this at a thrift store, I wanted to do something with it. Upcycle magic! Upcycle potential! Challenge accepted!
To this…..Valentine Ready!
Meet Miss Love Bug
She wants to know if you will accept this rose?
After I took everything off of the fence post, I started with paint for her face and body.
I used black pipe cleaners for her arms and lady bug antenna’s. The wings are Dollar Tree hearts and the rose came from there also. On the post was a nail already so I took floral wire and wrapped the rose around it. I hot glued her hands on it so it looks like she is holding it.
All the glittery hearts came from Dollar Tree. I felt like she needed more glitz and glamour, so I added deco mesh from Michael’s .
The technique to the mesh is the same as the wreaths. Make a poof and tie with wire. Keep going. Then, I glued on her back.
Every girl needs a touch of pizazz, a touch of Va-Va-Voom!
Here is a side by side look. From Americana to Valentine’s chic.
So, I ask you again. How many hearts is too many hearts? I say as many as you want. Miss Love Bug would agree and she hopes to find a place on the porch this Valentine holiday!
