Bee Mine Valentine Shaker
He is made the same way as all of my other shakers, found here and here. I did use safety eyes this time instead of felt eyes. If you don't have 10mm safety eyes, felt eyes will do just fine.
His Valentine is a felt heart with the words "bee mine" and hugs & kisses hand embroidered on. I sandwiched lace between two pieces of felt and hand stitched it into a little pillow. The little white speck under the "n" is some left over fake snow. That stuff gets everywhere!
His arms and hands are just two black pipe cleaners twisted together, bent in a "V" shape, hot glued right under his head and then the ends bent into little loops for the hands. Easy peasy!
The backside. His wings are just a length of tulle tied in a bow- right on the stick so it stays nice and secure. I painted the stick black and yellow. His antennas are just covered floral wire hot glued (inside) before I sewed the back of his head on. I also hot glued black pom poms onto his antennas. **Yes, I did use hot glue on this project. I like the way the glue dries so quickly on the awkward pieces, such as the antennae. Please use sparingly. The felt was tacked down before sewing with white tacky glue.
Another hankie doll. Pink pom poms for ponytails! She is clutching her Valentine close to her heart.

She is so happy Valentine's Day is coming up.

I added some lace to the bottom of her dress and made her legs a little longer than the other two.
I hope that you have enjoyed these Valentine's Day crafts. I still have a few more up my sleeve.
Have a wonderful night,
