All the best bloggers are currently getting ready for Valentine’s Day and making fantastic heart crafts, and recipes.
This week, we got our thinking caps on and came up with our own recycled valentines day craft activity.
We made a yarn covered bottle candlestick, which we then decorated with glittery hearts.
Empty wine bottle
Sparkly Pipe Cleaners
Sparkly Heart Stickers
Firstly we set about wrapping the bottle in yarn – this was harder than I thought it would be, particularly around the neck/shoulder part of the bottle, as it kept slipping.
I used sticky dots on the side of the bottle to try and hold the yarn in place.
Once the whole bottle was wrapped, we set about decorating it.
We kept the design simple, pipe cleaner wrapped around the neck, and another one wrapped around the candle to hold it in place, and sparkly heart stickers in a pattern on the front.
A really simple but effective idea.
We have some more recycled Valentines ideas coming up so keep an eye on the blog!
