We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day around here but I do like using it as a crafting opportunity! So...last week we made wreaths at Community Living...they were fun!
First we dyed cupcake liners with tea...
and food colouring!
Then we prettied up some super-heavy cardstock (it's the cardboard that comes in my 12x12 scrapbook paper packages), we taped on arrows and we got gluing!
This was the fun part! Watching the wreaths come alive with the cupcake liners...
Everyone had their own interpretation of the activity (I love that!)
And worked really hard to get their hearts covered...
Isn't this gorgeous?
So fun right?
I'm not going to lie...drying the liners was tricky. Want to know what happened in the end? Someone put them in the dryer! It was way faster than the oven!!! We dyed 100s of them and ran out in the end as we had 10+ people working on these wreaths.
