I don’t know why Valentine’s Day is my muse. I really don’t. Maybe because I came to love the day since I get chocolate and flowers and have another excuse to cook a great dessert (while my boyfriend makes the main course). Maybe that’s it. Or hearts. Who doesn’t like them?
Or maybe I was just hit by cupid? Maybe that’s it. If you look at cupid’s armor that’s now on display in our living room, I certainly convinced my guests.
For today’s tutorial I made a tiny display of what looks like cupid’s armor. (Get the pun? Cupid’s amor, cupid’s armor. I’m hilarious.)
All you need is:
– 3 toothpicks
– red paper
– gold wire
– a feather
– picture frame
Fold the red paper, draw 3 little hearts on it and cut them out.
Take the 3 toothpicks and wrap a piece of gold wire around it. Push it to one end and stick the hearts to the other. Cut three pieces off the feather and make them a little smaller.
Stick the feathers on the ends of the arrows with the gold wire.
Stick all three arrows on a piece of paper and put it in the picture holder.
Now. Carry on!
Oh my goodness, this is so simple, but so adorable! Thank you for opening my eyes to the wonders of an Ikea frame and toothpicks…! 🙂 (Who knew?)
