Episode 11: Satin, Sequin, and Paper Rose Hearts

January 25th, 2011

We had a lot of fun this week finding ways to decorate a simple  STYROFOAM™ Heart. With 3 different techniques, we covered them in something we hope you’ll love!  So take a look at our DIY Dish Craft Countdown this week — and we took away the 2-minute clock this episode!

Here are more photos of the project!  We’d love to know which are your top 2 favorites!  We’re going to post each of these techniques on our Facebook page and we’d love for you to vote for your favorite by either “liking” it on Facebook or making a comment here or on the photos you’ll find on Facebook.

Finally, we’re excited to let you know about a new quilt pattern we’ll have coming out this week! Here’s a little look!

    I really like this craft. I think the paper roses are my favorite. I like the hint of pink on them.

    You guys are great! I love all the ideas, but I think the satin roses are the best with the paper roses coming in at #2. Thanks for being there!

    Love the sequin heart the best… perhaps because I have two young girls. Can’t wait to try this project. Awesome idea for a great tut!!! Thanks so much!

    I wonder if newspaper would work for the paper rose project so you wouldn’t have to cut up a book? I’ll have to experiment :)

    Satan technique for sure. (it’s so funny that someone has asked the Osmond question again. You should do a movie and play the part of Marie!)

    Ohh-I like the satin roses best, but all are great. Think I will try the paper roses when I find the big glue dots. Dj in MO

    Loved the paper heart…but as I am craft copier only…I need more exact sizes. Your paper heart on the video looks much smaller that the ones on the wreath. What size circles did you cut for the wreath? Are they all the same size, are they stacked?

    Those roses are beautiful! I love anything that allows me to recycle and DIY at the same time. I’m definately going to use these all around the house and on gifts. Thanks so much for another great show!

    You guys are great. You have given me lots of ideas. I have been watching all your videos and loved the one on pin cushions. I have been making a lot to give as gifts. I’m going to put some pictures of them on my blog. Keep up the good work. And thanks for all the ideas.

    I love all these ideas. I recently covered a styrofoam heart with red yarn and added felt flower embellishments. It looks really good. Where do we get the downloadable instructions for these projects? I can’t seem to find the download button.

    I have trouble with the streaming of the videos, also. But, what I do is let it load, walk away and then come back in a little bit, click play and the video plays smoothly without any stops. Then, life is good, and I get to watch my crafty gals.

    I loved the satin roses first and then the paper ones. I’m going to try them both. I already have a frame ready to paint. It was only $2 at a sidewalk sale last summer.

    I’m all for the paper roses! *surprise* I’ll probably be taking that one on.

    I can’t believe I hadn’t subscribed to your YT channel before. Yes… I’m slow.
    Love your videos—you two are naturals!

    […] for the luncheon, right? So we brought out the placemats created in Episode 10, decorated with the Valentine hearts made in Episode 11, ordered take-out (who has time to cook!?!), and we had a party. Some quilted. […]

    I think I like the one cut from the book page. A nice new idea for me to work with. This is the one that I will most likely do of the 3. Looked interesting to make.

    […] some funky flowers. I cut the shirt into different sized circles then melted the edges on a candle (melted fabric flower petal tutorial here if you need one) but instead of just stacking the different sized petals, I folded and stacked them to make a […]
