rustic valentines


If you are a regular around here you will know that I love using simple supplies in my projects and I love using anything from nature (especially branches). So I decided to put a fun and rustic twist on traditional valentines!
1. I started by gathering branches and cut them into chunky sections. 2. Next I carved the bark away. 3, 4. Then I used my wood burning tool to burn designs into the wood.


5. I used recycled grocery bags and cut hearts out. 6. I added a a few embellishments with a white paint pen. 7. Last I glued those hearts onto twigs and placed them into the branches.
