I was sitting staring at my beauties sitting in a box ready to make the journey to the attic when I thought, "Hey, some of those could be V-Day trees with a little help."
First I punched out some glitter hearts and strung them on baker's twine. Just tied it around the tree.
Voila! V-Day tree.
Well, I could do better than that! Something banner-y. I have pinned enough banners in the last several months.
So into the horror show of a craft stash to find washi tape and more baker's twine and mini pink jute and a Sharpie ...
You can use your imagination.
The first one was difficult to maneuver.
I quickly got the hang of these teensy banners.
Fold over the washi tape and cut it like a banner.
I did not even bring out the stamps - just wrote with a Sharpie.
I think they are just the right touch for an anti-Valentine girl like me.
I can yanked the teensy-tiny banners off in less than a second.
Azalee, the cat, can do it faster. I know this from experience.
Willie and Scout (the dogs) ate a roll of washi tape each.
Luckily it was the cheap, er, inexpensive kind from Target.
The sheep were the lucky ones who received the surviving trees.
Molly, the other cat, is sitting right behind the trees - guarding them from attack.
Nobody messes with Molly -including Chucks and me.
It's her way or no way!
Look - the barn was decorated with a banner, too.
Enough silliness. It is very late - way, way past my bedtime. At some point I need some great weather and some free hours to get back to painting furniture. Maybe I will be normal then. One can only hope.
