He is working 12 hour overnight shifts and Friday morning he came home with flowers to brighten my day and brighten they did.
Hey they even sparked my craftiness.... First I tried out something I've been dying to try on Pinterest.
Then, I finally finished a project that has been sitting around for what seems like forever. Now I had the time and the reason to finally finish it. As my hubby went off to sleep and my kids off to school I got to work. Here is my end result, this was a Super Saturday project sparked by Sister Wilson.
Omg, I love it. Makes me so happy coming home to fresh flowers. It was soooo easy to make too. Here is what you do...
- wood heart
- wire hanger
- mason jar
- ribbon (optional)
note: the wood heart was cut out of wood for this project, but you could maybe buy something similar at a craft store.
I then painted the heart. It came out cute but it was a result of a mistake. I painted the outer edge with brown paint cause I planned on doing the Vaseline trick and then painting it red and having it look aged. but..... when it came time to paint it red I only had one bottle of red craft paint that was pretty much empty, but due to me not wanting to go to the store I squeezed out enough to get one coat on and this is what happened. I love it.
Then, you take the wire hanger and use it to attach the canning jar to the wood. There are 4 holes drilled into the wood to pull the wire through. Then I added the ribbon to cute it up.
Now I have a place to show my husband's pretty flowers.
