So today was the first official meeting of the Pink Apron Sisters Craft Club! Every other Saturday one of us will decide on craft and send out the supply list, then everyone shows up with all the supplies and whoever chose the craft introduces it and we all sit around and make it. Today Ashley was the craft leader and the craft was a Valentines heart tree.
a pot- got mine at Salvation Army for $1.20
small wooden hearts- Joannes for $3.00
a stick- free Vistancia Elementary
wire- $3.00 (split 3 ways)
moss- $1.00 (split 3 ways)
spray paint- already owned
craft paint- already owned
joint compound- already owned
Here is a picture of the pot before the makeover.
Friday at school we all filled our pots with the joint compound and put our sticks in where we wanted… we also tied ribbon to the stick and to the side of the box to make sure it stayed and dried exactly the way we wanted it to. Saturday morning the girls came over to my house and we got busy.
After going back and forth between coats of spray paint on the pot, and coats of craft paint on the wooden hearts… we were ready to start with the wire. We cut off about 7 inch strips of the craft wire and tied them randomly around the stick… it looked cuter if we twisted it around our finger and made it “springy”, so most of mine are twisty. Next we hot glued the hearts to the ends of each wire, hot glued some moss to the bottom… and VIOLA! An adorable Valentines tree for the price of about $5.00…. not too shabby!
