Welcome to a holiday-edition of Craftastic Monday! Before we get to the party, I've got a last minute Valentine's project that's easy, fast & cheap. My Conversation Heart Lamp. And it can be recycled for a totally new project later. How's that for keeping it festive with no effort?
- Glass lamp or jar (if you want to use a candle)
- Red card stock
- Cricut Machine (or exacto knife & a little patience)
- Poster putty
First I grabbed this frosted Ikea lamp sitting in my basement collecting dust. I think it cost $5 a few yrs ago. I used my Cricut & Sure Cuts A Lot software to make the hearts the perfect size and to cut the messages within them. If you don't have a cutter machine, you could pencil draw & then cut out the shapes with an exacto, but using the Cricut meant it took about 5 seconds.
I carefully peeled the hearts and the floating bits of the letters (the center of the B's & O) off the mat and stuck them onto my lamp with little bits of poster putty. Switch the lamp on & custom Valentine's Day decor is in full effect!
The best part is inside of tossing this into a growing pile of holiday themed projects that have to wait until this time next year, the hearts can be peeled off & the lamp is ready for something new.
Now let's have a look at a few cool projects from last week's party:
