Happy Valentines Day!
Myself and Ellie both love valentines day; we were each others valentines, and actually had a really good day. We were only at school, but I'm not sure what it was - maybe the love in the air? - but for some reason, we really enjoyed the day! Which is good! That's what we wanted at the beginning of the year.
I know that many people think that today is just a day built around the fortune that card shops will be making, but I think any chance to spread some love (cheesy, I know) has to be celebrated. Even if you don't have a significant other, I think that it's just a fun day to either spend with your family/friends, or just an excuse to be really happy!
To celebrate valentines day, I decorated the house a tiny bit :)
-A glue gun
- Some scissors
In all fairness, you could probably try using pins of the same colour of the material of your choice if you haven't got a glue gun.
To begin with, you need to measure the length of each of the tiers of the candle, with the lace, so you know how much you will need.
When you are sure you have enough, cut the lace for the bottom layer. (Really, you could begin at any layer, it's just the one I started with).
You then need to glue down the lace in various areas, with the glue gun.
Stick the lace on, and continue to do this for each layer, until you have the desired look :)
Both the glue gun, and the lace was from The Range. Ellie very kindly bought me the lace for my birthday :) The scissors which I used are Cath Kidston.
I love this candle so much, and cannot wait to place is in the perfect position to look gorgeous! However, I won't be burning this.
Tonight I will be watching the film Valentines Day, and unfortunately doing Maths revision for my test tomorrow. I imagine that all weekend I will be watching valentines/love-based films! I would love to know how you've spent your valentines day, or if you celebrate it.
-Love Dom ♥
