DIY ~ Tiny Clay Heart Valentine Garland

I decided to leave my pink Christmas trees up for Valentines day after I saw my friend Heather & Courtney's on their IG feed. Love those amazing & super creative ladies. One thing mine was missing though was a teeny tiny polymer clay heart garland. That & some raccoon lovers.

  1. what you'll need- polymer clay-tool with sharp edge {knife will work}-needle- string
  2. pick what colors you want to use
  3. mold the clay into a heart
  4. use your tool or knife to make a crease at the top
  5. make a hole straight through your heart so you can thread it later
  6. put your hearts in the oven {read directions on the package}
  7. string your hearts & display {I used tiny little * 3m hooks see picture below}

* 3m has saved my walls time & time again. also they are reusable!

Halloween 2012

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays & one of my favorite times of the year. The weather this year was amazing. We did a couple of awesome DIY's for diy club. My girls dressed up as princesses again & I was ok with it- sort of... {one day i'll get them to be doctors or super heros}

 since we had a couple of parties to go to I decided to have reyn dress up in a couple of different  costumes. suave french guy & a milk man just using clothing I had on hand.
 here we also have ida as a "princess witch" & elsa as snow white.


I made some white chocolate ghosts from candy melts for a super fun party at carolines

 we had a super fun halloween/ birthday party to go to for our friend tia at classic skate- yes we got our skate on- we were bacon & eggs. unfortunately our sumo wrestler friends got really hungry
