This took less than an hour to make and you really can't go wrong with it -- even if it's your first time trying one.
This is a work frame - see how the branches are spaced apart and that there are 2 rows of them? This is the deco mesh I used. This was a part roll that you will see later that I used it also on a Christmas one. So, you can get a lot out of one roll.
I went around and attached one row - then came around to do the other row -
Just grab a handful and twist the branches once or twice to secure it -
It needed something more so I looked thru my ribbon stash to find something coordinating. I just went around it once - gently unsecuring the branches to put in the ribbon then twisting it back -
All finished --
I embellished with a couple heart picks and heart sequin ornaments. I will keep this all attached - not quite sure where yet - to just bring out next Valentine's.
I made one for Christmas that I keep hanging on a spare bedroom closet door with a door hanger.
You can see how I made that one by clicking here.
Lucy just loves her little mice and she has quite a collection. Still - she has some favorites as I discovered when I found a handful under the couch. She immediately gathered up the smallest one - a white one. Here you can see her playing with it -
Carrying it in her mouth -
Guarding it -
Hiding it - or trying to --
Finally, playing with it under this skirted table - see Lucy's tail and to her left you can see part of the white mouse (you can always click on any photos to see them larger) --
