Is it too early for Valentines? We just finished New Years and Christmas. I'm in a funk right now. I've started a few projects but can't seem to finish any. I'm just dragging along. The weather is so cold here and my mind keeps wandering to the time in a little over a week when I'll be on the beach . . . somewhere WARM, just relaxing. Oh boy! But I need to finish things and post before I go so I won't be thinking while I'm away what I should have made or done before leaving. Are you with me right now?
Last fall I ordered some wired jute rope from Trendy Tree. It looked interesting, but once it came I didn't have a clue as to what on earth I would make with it.
Then I remembered seeing wire writing somewhere on the net, but now I can't seem to find where. Anyway, using my no sew burlap basket as a prop, I created a sweet message of "love" scripted in wired jute rope. The tutorial for the basket can be found here.Once that's made you can begin forming the rope into the cursive "love" word. Allow at least 6 feet of wire rope to form the word and heart shape. It's always best to have more to work with than less. You can always remove the excess. Also allow extra wire before and after the word to form the curvature of the heart. As you form the letters, glue as you move along, pressing the rope to the glue until it catches. That shouldn't take very long. a matter of seconds, using hot glue.
Once the word is in place and glued, you want to take the wire ends and form the heart shape above the word. Just shape each end into a "heart loop" and glue the two ends together.
There! Now you can add sweet things for that special loved one or dress up your "love" basket. . .

I guess it's never too early for LOVE!
You can apply script words to just about anything! Have fun making and, oh, by the way . . .
You're Gonna Love It Tuesday
