Valentine Craft Night {part 1}

Hi y'all! Craft night with the girls was so much fun and at the end of the night (1 am to be exact), we ended up with three different yummy Valentine creations to adorn our space. One of my favorite things to do are these sweet wands. They look so cute in a vintage vase or sundae cup filled with sugar. Although I must warn you that wine + the hot glue gun doesn't mix very well.

Y'all know how much I love coffee filters and after Vicki and Denise dyed some plain white filters in different shades of pinks and tans, our heart shaped wreaths turned out fabulous!

Since we had so many coffee filters and had finished our wreaths, we decided to make the coffee filter garland by stringing them on jute twine. We added some cute Valentine muffin cups in the mix and it turned out great. This was an idea that we got from the very talented Pam Garrison.

I love seeing my craft table filled with piles of coffee filters, ribbon, vintage paper, glue and glitter! It's a crafters delight!

Denise and Vicki working on the heart wreaths. We recommend using a thimble. It became our best friend half way through.

A work in progress...

Good friends + good food and wine + fun crafts = 1 heck of a good time! Thanks girls...can't wait for part 2!
