I liked working with the word/letter art so much that I made a set for St. Patty's day too. Same thing again, I painted large paper mâché letters and then chalked the edges with a deeper green. I created the rainbow and assembled a variety of objects to create the pot if gold. I think it turned out how I had anticipated it to so I was happy with the end results.
I had a few extra days I got to spend at home this past month or so because of the weather we've been having so I decided it was a perfect time to get my craft on! I had pinned some valentines decorations from Pinterest and I wanted to make my own versions of the ideas. I have in the past created my own paper mache letters, but for convenience this time I decided to go ahead and use the pre-made versions from the craft store. Here's what I ended up making and they fit pretty nicely on the mantel.
The XOXO has valentines themed scrap paper covering them and the smaller LOVE I painted a pale pink and chalked the edges with a darker pink. I also was inspired by a cute banner I saw and here's my version of that.
