2010-01-11 CRAFT-A-LONG Part 1

For this craft-a-long we are going to do Little Birdie Secrets' Easy Valentine's Wreath.

I know you can just go to her site and follow the directions there but, I've decided to do this one because it is easy and everyone can get the "gist" of what a craft-a-long is all about. This craft-a-long is intended for family and friends of mine that are too busy/too far to get together on a regular basis. This way, we can still craft together via the internet.

so let's get going!

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Scraps of fabric (prolly needs to be valentine-y in color since this is a valentine's wreath....but you could do your own thing too.)

Elmers glue or Tacky Glue

Styrofoam Heart

Pencil

Ribbon


Step 2: Cut Your Fabric

You need to cut your scrap fabric into 2 inch squares. I am going to start with cutting one full yard of fabric. As the craft continues, if I need more fabric, I will cut more. You do the same. :)


Now, get to crafting! I will post the next step in a couple of days.

Post pics of your steps on your blog if you want. (I would really like that!)

This sounds like a lot of fun but will have join in your projects when I can find all the supplies here. Wish we had a Hobby Lobby to run to whenever we needed things. Can't wait to see everyone's projects.

If I can just locate a freaking foam heart I will be in business. You would think this would be an easy task.
