DIY: Valentine’s Day Rainbow Banner

This is a fun little rainbow banner for Valentine’s Day make with felt and string. Keep reading to see how to make it!

Required Material:

  • Squares of craft felt in rainbow colors
  • Bakers twine
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Chalk
  • Heart cookie cutter
  • Batting
  • Pins
  • Start by tracing the heart shape onto a piece of felt folded in half

After it has been traced with chalk, pin the middle to keep both sides together.

Cut out your hearts. Keep the pins in. Set pinned hearts aside.

Do the same with the other rainbow colors.

Now sew both pieces together along the edge in a extra wide stitch with contrasting thread. You could also handstitch these. Leave 2 inches open to add the batting.

Stuff the batting into the heart and sew up the last inch.

Do the same with the other colors (I only ended up making one of each color as opposed to the two I had cut out).

Thread some bakers twine into a embroidery needle and poke through the top end of one, threading it through to the other side. Make sure to put the hearts on in rainbow order.

Keep adding to the thread until they’re all on.

How to create a cascading bouquet of artificial flowers

This small master class, I decided to show you how to make a cascading bouquet, understudy in taping technique. I do not know, does anyone still doubles so this technique and I like the fact that it allows you to create absolutely any bouquet shape, whether ordinary hemisphere or “waterfall” to the floor.

Necessary materials:

– small head rose (on the job took them 40 pieces)
– Rose leaves 10 pieces
– a pair of white carnation bushes
– a few sprigs of greens with tiny leaves
– Floral wire is 0.7 mm thick
– Teip tape
– Hot air and hot melt adhesive
– Scissors
– Wire cutters
– Satin tape 4 cm wide and 2.5 cm (2 m)
– Lace 50 cm
– Beads (15 pieces)
– Decorative buttons
Getting Started. Cropped bushes with branches carnation so that we stayed on them “legs”. In order to collect a bouquet of roses in the head, you must first create them stems. Here we need the one wire that was left of carnations.

Cut it into pieces, centimetre 4-5. Such pieces will need as much as the heads of roses we’ll use. Next, we need to put on the head of the wire segments roses. To do this, we are on the tip of the wire we put a drop of glue and put on our roses. It looks as follows: We continue to form stems. Take the wire and florist primate it to our legs so that the ends of the wires were down, prolonging the existing legs. In the same way we do with the rest of the flowers and greenery. Now we need to wire propitiate. To do this, take the tape and from top to bottom, a little stretching her tight and carefully amalgamate she ends our wire. That’s legs and ready. At first glance, someone who has not worked in the technique of taping, the process may seem long, but when “the hand is already packed,” it is done quickly. Now you are ready to assemble. Take one at the flower and begin to put them together to form a “cap” of the bouquet. It is better to do so: lay down a few stalks, tap-recorded tape. Then added another and again recorded. So we continue to put a flower in the flower, alternating red and white and adding a small green, trying to give the bouquet shape of a hemisphere. Here it was possible to stay and start to decorate the handle of the bouquet, but as he we should be cascaded, we will form a part of its drop down. To do this, take in hand a rose, then, below (below the height of the head), are putting two other roses. Below them three pieces. In between, do not forget to insert a carnation and greens. And since several rows depending on how long we want to make the cascade. In form it resembles a Christmas tree. Next, you need to connect the top and bottom of the bouquet. To do this, we bending the lower part and are putting it to the top so that together they constituted a single unit. We fix tap-tape. Now start to decorate the stem of the bouquet. First, on the edges of the leaves of roses surrounded by cushioning the foot and again fix tap-tape. Satin ribbon width 4 cm cut into 8 pieces of 10-12 cm. Each leg folded in half are bent, as shown in the photo and fix with glue. These blanks around the perimeter of foot paste bouquet. Determine how long we want to leave the leg and cut the excess stems clippers. Again, fix their tap-tape. Then decorate the leg across the length of the ribbon width of 2.5 cm. In the centre of some of the glue in beads roses. On foot, the top we tie or glue lace ribbon and decorate with decorative buttons. Well that’s all, our bouquet is ready!

DIY: Beautiful (Night Lamp) Heart ball of thread

Lamp-night lamp “Loving Heart” (published in w. Master (Belarus))

In anticipation of the holidays, we overcome suffering – “What to give to your loved ones?” I want something unusual, surprising, no matter what do not like. I would like to express our overwhelming feelings, and the words hard to find? Let’s give your favorite marvelous light “Heart”. With this gift, you will be able to say everything without words.

The night can give mothers on Women’s Day, girlfriend or daughter for a birthday, a favorite on Valentine’s Day heart “beats” from the senses and that’s it. Light a lamp in a romantic evening only strengthen your feelings.

And you can just for yourself, your favorite, to create a miracle. The interior of the bedroom, it certainly attracted attention.

everything you need to prepare in advance.

  • 1 -2 thread spool (pink or other colors), the color of a lamp depends on your decision.
  • 2 PVA glue, not less than 100 ml (not the building!) Adhesive point or hot glue (glue gun)
  • 3 thick needle, long
  • 4 ball in the shape of a heart (you can make a light and around for yourself). For the master class, we took a round ball.
  • 5 square-shaped plate (20 ’20) of a thickness not less than 1.5 cm. You can replace the wooden photo frame with wide planks or solid cardboard box.
  • 6 napkin color (can be replaced with cloth or acrylic paint). The stand can be issued and in its sole discretion)
  • 7 -tailender a roll of toilet paper.
  • 8 dried plants and artificial flowers, beads, feathers, in short, something for decorating our hearts.
  • 9 drill
  • 10 blinking Christmas tree garland.
  • 11 scissors

Getting to the manufacture of

1 First, make shade for our lamp. Inflate balloon heart to medium size. The size of the inflated balloon and will be the size of our lampshade.

2 bottles of glue PVA bottom pierced with a needle with two vdet in her thread.

Figure 1) extends a needle through the bank, took out the other side, take out the needle thread. Pierce the bottom necessarily banks unnecessarily. the thread must always be wetted with glue, and the amount of adhesive in the work decreases. For the convenience of working with a thread spool, and a jar of glue put in jars.

3 end of the thread tying the tail of the ball and start winding a ball
Fig. 2). The thread must always be wetted with adhesive. Initially, it will be inconvenient and thread all the time to slip the ball, but we’re stubborn, hard-working, we will succeed!(Figure 3) tauten thread diagonally lengthwise, crosswise. After 10 min, the winding becomes easier. (Fig. 4)

First, we get the hand and understand the principle, secondly, the thread stops the slide, unnecessarily. It will cling to the wound.

Roundball winding easier than the “heart”. The “heart” do not forget to wrap the “ears”. Look where we are sending to the emptiness and thread. Drum thread pool is not empty. If the glue is ended earlier thread, just  it from other banks. That wound ball (Fig. 5) Leave it to dry. When the thread is almost dry, punctures the ball. Threads will be tough and will keep the shape.

4 Getting manufacturing base. I took a stand for the tablet. Drill a hole in it (you can help one of the men, but not one for which it will be a surprise. Although …. Maybe he was. He did not even guess what it is and why.) The hole should be of a diameter that through it might get through Christmas tree garland. Instead, you can use a thick plank picture frame, replacing the glass with a thick cardboard. Or, in extreme cases, try the box with a thick, dense cardboard, not too thin. (Figure 6)

5 over the aperture ring of glue cardboard, cut from of roll of toilet paper. We attach it with glue well bay. Outside strengthen a strip of paper, grabbing one corner of the ring, the other coming on board. The board. I pasted cloth (PVA) and a bit overshadowed gold acrylic paint. (Figure 7 and Fig. 8 and Fig. 9). On the reverse side, plates make a groove for the wiring from a garland (Fig. 10) 6 Threads almost dried up? Punctures the ball. The ball should unstick itself from the thread. Therefore, it is not necessary to wait until dry. If the ball has dried thoroughly and piercing not unstuck from the thread, will come to his aid. Through the thread is passed a pencil or any wand inside her trying to unstick the ball. If the thread balloon wrinkled, pressed, then we, the same wand inside his straightened, but still try to do everything patiently and carefully. The ball was torn inside the thread. (Fig. 11)

We’ll get it through the skin. It is more convenient to do it with tweezers.

7 At the bottom of the ball (where was the tail), cut out a hole in the form of a lotus. (Fig. 12).

The hole diameter should be with our ring. And it sits on must be tight. (Figure 13). Dress up the ball on the ring, pouring glue. The petals are glued to the outside of the ring. Then you will feel that the ball as if he falls, and “asks” on the stand. Just press it and the place where he sat down on the stand we coat with glue. Just make sure that the lamp was flat, not tilted. (Fig. 14) 8 Zadekoriruem our “Heart” (in our version, to explain the ball.) I used dried flowers. But you can come up with something of their own. Stick to your decor thread, make “heart” of the most beautiful and loving. (Fig. 15) 9 Bottom stand pokes through a hole in the “heart” of Christmas garland. Outside the reserve wire that embarks on the groove and attaches it with glue or adhesive tape.Enjoy your evening
