Valentine's Day Ornaments
Hi there, friends! It's been a minute, but I wanted to pop in with a few ornaments I made this week to help fill out our Valentine's Day tree (oh, I definitely did it and we're really enjoying having such cheerful decor in our dining room). I used a few different die sets to create these and I truly had fun putting everything together!
I did two different "sets." Let's start with the scalloped set! The base of these three ornaments is the Simple Scalloped Circle Ornament Die.
This first ornament features a small Basic Heart decorated with the Floral Heart Details Die. I used the "holes only" heart to attach the small heart to the base and then embellished each scallop with a clear bead.
I wanted to decorate the back too, so I used the script "Love" die from the Lovely Layers Details Die to add a bit of interest. It's the perfect touch!
On this next ornament I used the Love Potion Details Die to add the heart and mini "xoxo" message. I cut the window and Tundra layer using the dies from the Simple Scalloped Circle Ornament Die. I used trios of beads and sequins to dress up each scallop of the ornament and really make it sparkle.
I used the smaller heart from the Cupid's Arrow Details Die to decorate the third ornament. I chose to use polka dot felt to add some interest to the heart, but you could use reinforced fabric too, if you had something on hand that would fit your theme. A trio of sequins was the perfect sparkly embellishment.
The other "set" of ornaments I made were these monogrammed hearts with Sean and Tilly's initials. Tilly asked me recently where mine is, so I guess I have one more to finish! I used the large Basic Heart for these alone with the Embroidered Heart Vine Details Die and Monogram Alphabet letters.
Sean's ornament is pretty straightforward. I stitched the vine and then added the monogram in the center. I don't bother with the Inline Monogram Alphabet in tight spaces like this (just to make sure the holes don't interact). Then I embellished the vine with a whole bunch of beads! This really sparkles without being too feminine.
Tilly's got the scalloped treatment with a Scalloped Heart Details layer between the front and back hearts (I could have left off the back heart, but I liked the contrast of the colors on the back).
I added a handful of little flowers (from the Botanical Butterfly Details Die) to dress up the vine. She's so tickled that she can walk up to the tree and spot her initial!
Thank you so much for joining me today! Stay warm wherever you are and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
