Hello sweet Peachy Keen fans. This is Glora from Glora's Crafts and today I have a fun Valentine's Day decor item to share with you. These cute little dangling decorations are very simple to make and are about 2 feet long. I made 3 different ones and I'm planning on using them as Valentine's Day decorations.
Are you interested in making some of these? Well here is what I used to make them. First, I cut this heart from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge at 5". I cut 3 white scalloped hearts and 6 pink hearts so that I could make them double sided. They swirl around a little and I wanted both sides to be equally as cute. For the adorable faces I used some of the beautiful 4" face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps. Yes that is right 4" faces. I'm completely in love with them and my mind has been swimming with all the possibilities. I used the faces called, PKK-03 4" Happy Lash Simple Smile, PKK-05 4" Happy Lashes - Open Mouth and PKK-06 4" Happy Lash Mouth Open w/ Tongue Out.
Here is a little closer look at the face with the tongue out:
For the swirl piece all I did was take a spiral shape from the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge. Here is a picture of what it looks like when it is first cut out:
I cut it at 4 1/2" but you could cut it smaller or larger depending on how long you want yours to be. I punched a hole in the piece at the very center and one at the end of the spiral. Then I put some twine through the holes and tied a knot to make some little loops. The top twine loop so that I can hang my decoration up and the bottom one is to attach the dangling double sided hearts. The weight of the heart on the middle part pulls the spiral down and makes a long whimsical decoration.
I think I will be making some of these for each holiday using these awesome 4" faces. I'm thinking shamrocks, easter eggs, ghosts, snowflakes, the possibilities are endless...
I also want to show you a close up of each heart real quick because I think these faces make the hearts look SO sweet! Just imagine how cute these hearts would look as a 5" shaped card for Valentine's Day.
For this one I used: PKK-06 4" Happy Lash Mouth Open w/ Tongue Out
This one has PKK-03 4" Happy Lash Simple Smile
And this one has PKK-05 4" Happy Lashes - Open Mouth
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you were inspired to try something fun and different. Have a super Peachy day! Hugs- Glora
