Burlap Valentine’s Day Placemats

 

DIY Burlap Placemats for Valentine's Day | View From The Fridge for My Crafty Spot

Hello, everyone!  I hope you’re staying warm wherever you are!  We’re enduring the cold (and trying to embrace it) up here in Minnesota, but inside … we’re moving on from Christmas.  The reds and greens are slowly being replaced by more neutral items … with just a touch of pink thrown in for Valentine’s Day!  Yes … I know, I know it may be rushing it a bit, but the hints of pink get me just a teeny tiny bit excited for Spring.

It’s Katie from View From The Fridge, and I’m back this month with a fun way to set a festive (or even romantic??) table for Valentine’s Day (or really any day) with these Burlap Placemats:

Easy Valentine-Themed Canvas Art

Easy Valentine-Themed Canvas Art

Hello! It’s Erin again, back from The Blue Eyed Dove. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are enjoying the first part of 2015!

January always feels like such a long month, but it seems to be flying by this year. Which is certainly not a bad thing. Plus, that means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner…yay!

Being the girly girl that I am, I’m a sucker for a holiday that is centered around love, hearts…and of course lots of pink 😉

So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day {and love in general} I thought I’d share an easy canvas art project with you today.

You Complete Me {LOVE} Mugs

You Complete Me Love Mugs

Hello everyone!  I’m thrilled to be here today to share my latest project … a set of ‘you complete me’ LOVE mugs.  This set would be a great gift for someone special OR for that special couple.  With Valentine’s Day and wedding season just around the corner … you may just want to make a couple sets!

I love a good homemade gift … and I love a good thrift store find.  This project just happens to involve both!  When I spotted these white Crate and Barrel mugs at Goodwill the other week, I knew I would find a way to put them to good use!    At $0.99, I really couldn’t go wrong … right?!?!

You Complete Me Love Mugs

LOVE THIS COMBO … CRATE AND BARREL WITH GOODWILL $0.99 STICKERS ON TOP!

If your Goodwill doesn’t happen to have these beauties, Ikea and Target are also great sources of inexpensive plain white mugs.  Besides the mugs, you’ll need:

  • Adhesive letter stencils.  You could use a variety of stencils here (purchased letter stencils, stencils made with a Silhouette or Cricut and adhesive vinyl, etc).  I ended up using letter stickers from Target (sold in the poster aisle).  Instead of using the letters themselves (as I’m sure most people use these for, I used the outsides to form the stencil).
  • Embossing powder in two colors
  • White / clear stamp pad
  • Heat gun
You complete me LOVE MUGS
