I'm lucky enough to get to make things every day... but I have to say this little project got me seriously excited for Valentine's Day! I noticed a 'Queen of Hearts' playing card project from a 1950's craft book that piqued my interest... and kind of transformed the idea into these adorable bunny valentines! Here's how to make your own!
Materials you will need:
- white & purple card stock
- pink & red pipe cleaners
- miniature playing cards
- hot glue
- a pink colored pencil & black fine tipped sharpie
- miniature pom poms
- foam hearts for a base or cut cardboard
|Cut 1/4 off of a pipe cleaner, and fold the other 3/4's of it in half for the body & legs.|
Cut another pipe cleaner in half for the arms.
|Fold both pipe cleaner pieces together like so.|
|Hot glue two miniature cards at the top of your bunny.|
|Create bunny faces out of white card stock.|
|Hot glue your valentine bunny on a little heart base. Glue a purple valentine in his or hand too.|
Don't forget to glue a cute pom pom tail to the back too!
I'm wishing you all a great Valentine's Day this week... considering the upcoming snow storm, maybe this could be one of your indoor projects? Have a love filled week and just a small announcement that my Etsy store will finally be carrying my felted sculptures & art! Click here to browse the Lady Lucas Store now ;) xo Ashley
