Valentine Polka Dot and Pearls Workshop!

What a fun Valentine themed Polka Dot and Pearls workshop!

We started out making one-of-a-kind heart shaped name tags using vinyl lettering and plenty of bling embellishments. Our favorite accent was a glittery mustache!

We then started our beautiful polka dot heart pearl necklaces! We put a vinyl monogram on large acrylic hearts and attached them to our hand strung pearl necklaces. The girls were so proud of their jewels!

Next, we used pastel paints on tiny jewelry bowls to make them shine! Each showed personality and uniqueness. The bowls can hold rings, earrings, necklaces...whatever!

We then started our giant heart wreath! We wrapped natural burlap around foam hearts and covered them completely. Then we wrapped fun printed fabrics as accents, and added tiny hand rolled flowers. The wreaths looked better than any I've seen in stores!

Our day ended with a popcorn/candy bar. The girls had a blast mixing their popcorn with sweets! We talked about our day and about the art we love.

It was a day of friendship and art...so much fun!
