Love is in the Air: Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop
Hello, Friends! Welcome to another Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop! You should be coming here from Dana Joy’s Blog. This month, we’re getting you primed for Valentine’s Day with our “Love is in the Air” ribbon club assortment of fabulous ribbons. Take a peeky:
Aren’t they scrumptious? So many wonderful patterns and textures…I couldn’t wait to play with them.
Have you heard of “spoolies”? I’ve seen these in different places on Pinterest and the web, and I think they are so cute! Basically, you stack up a bunch of spools, bottle caps and such and decorate them to make a cute piece of home decor. That’s what I did with these sweet ribbons.
This was such a quick and easy little bauble to make. I painted an empty thread spool, a Prima bottle cap and a re-purposed wine cork with “Innocence” DecoArt Chalk Paint . I wrapped the spool with Swiss Dots Grosgrain Ribbon in pearl pink with hot pink dots. I added another row of the Hot Pink and Shocking PInk Diagonal Grosgrain Ribbon at the bottom edge of the spool. Then I used my Zutter Bow-it-All to create a flirty hot pink bow with Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.
I glued the painted wine cork inside the Prima Bottle Cap and filled the bottle cap with Delicate Pink Sweetheart Blossoms. They are so sweet! I topped the wine cork with a handmade flower (Posy Patch from Heartfelt Creations) and a bit of Brenda White Crocheted Lace. I gathered more of this lace, then attached it to the back of my Valentine image. (Authentique “Cursh”) I used one of Tim’s memo pins to secure it to the cork.
It’s a super quick, super cute little number…and I’ve put it on my mantle shelf along with my Valentine Banner…so love is in the air at my house! Oooh-la-la!
