Valentine's Day Craft
Sometimes, the simplest things can mean so much to someone. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, a simple gift can show that special someone how much they mean to you.
For this project I used:
1 heart glass shaped bottle
12ss Light Siam flat back rhinestones
30ss Crystal Rhinestones
There are several tools on the market that help apply adhesives such as E6000 which tends to be sort of gloppy. I like to squeeze it out over a paper plate and scrape the glue up with a toothpick to apply it. Begin by placing a drop of glue on the glass bottle. Using the wax tipped tool, pick up a rhinestone and gently press it into the glue.
I began at the top of the bottle and covered the outside edges of the bottle with some swirl pattern in the inside.
Then I glued some large 30ss crystal rhinestones in among the swirls. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
Cut a pieces of silver ribbon about 4 inches long and tie a bow at the top. Fill with small candy such as MMs in Valentine’s Day colors.
This is a simple gift that is easy to make yet will have such heartfelt meaning to the person you give it to.

I have been adding bling for over 20 years. Through my projects, I hope you find inspiration.
