Betty Boop Centrepiece

Initially this antique chamber pot was going to be a porch planter; then I added the candles and made it a Valentine’s centerpiece. I thought the Betty Boop lunch box (not vintage, but a replica of the 1950s cartoon character) resembled a heart-shaped balloon, so I taped it to a garden stake and to give it height like a balloon would have.

Valentine’s Junk Arrows

 Just two weeks until Valentine’s Day and department stores and home décor are doing a roaring business in  all things of any reddish hue or shaped like hearts and arrows.

But decorating for the annual celebration of love needn’t be costly.  In fact, your garage and attic (and the waste bin) probably have the raw materials for a unique and charming Valentine’s decorations.

Above is a photo of a handful of junk that I gathered to make a number of junky cupid’s arrows.

fireplace brush and rusty cookie cutter

A vintage and very worn fireplace brush topped a with a rusty antique cookie cutter are a good start.

Added to a painted grapevine wreath made seasonal with some cuttings of Heather from the garden and I have a Valentine’s wreath that is unlike any other.

In 2015 I made this arrow from scrap wood, a rusty cookie cutter and antique forks
