We made DIY Valentine decorations from tin heart molds

Valentine decoration from tin heart mold

Another impromptu craft night, this time Melanie, Tiffany and I. I’m loving craft nights. It seems to be the only way I get anything done! Tiffany had bought some little tin – OK, aluminum – heart molds, so the three of us put our own touch to one. It’s so interesting to see the different ideas for — Valentine decorations from tin heart molds……..


A concentrating Tiffany. Melanie had just stepped out of the picture.

Mine, Tiffany’s and Mel’s.

I took closeups, but the background made them too confusing to look at. I’ll try to get closeups of Tiff’s and Mel’s in the next couple of days. They’re worth a closer look. Here’s a closeup of mine.

We all started with the same shape mold and we all used stained cheesecloth as a base. Tiffany and Melanie got their graphics from The Graphics Fairy. Mine was a copy of a picture I had lying around. Mel and I used lace and glitter and jewelry pieces and she used a silver cord. Tiff used a fabric yo-yo, red check fabric strip, bit of lace and buttons. I hope I can get closeups of theirs tomorrow! They each made a bottle, too. (I tried, but had an…. ahem…. artist’s block. Ha!) Again I took closeups, but the lace background did nothing for seeing the details of the bottles. When I get the heart pictures, I’ll take bottle pictures. Personally, I like to see them in place anyway.
