How about making some super easy Vintage Valentine Pierrots & Pierrettes Rosettes for the Love Circus?

I made a big pile of these in about 3 hours, with cup cake liners, a glue gun and my printables 😀

Supplies: (1) Various Cup Cake Liners, (2) Various Doilies, Glue Gun, Bakers Twine, 2″ Hole Punch, 2″ punched cereal box circles (for sturdyness), Paper Straws.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Flatten a cupcake liner
  • Attach a 2″ punched cereal box circle to the front of the cupcake liner
  • Attach a 2″ punched cereal box circle to the back of the cupcake liner
  • Cut out a Pierrot image from the printable collage sheet
  • Attach the image to the front
  • Attach a paper straw to the back, or sandwiched between the layers
  • Display the Rosette Sticks in milk bottles or narrow jars
  • Tie some bakers twine around your container, and ta-dah!!!
  • Cuteness Complete!

Since I made up a whole bunch, I wanted mine to be in two different heights for some extra variation. To achieve that, I cut a second paper straw in 2 halves, and put a skewer inside the straw. I did not bother to glue it stuck, but you can, if you are gifting these to someone special 😉

I also made a few pipe cleaner Heart Sticks to display with the Rosettes. Use two pipe cleaners for each heart, and join them according to the image below, then twist the stem a few times to make it sturdy:Wings of Whimsy: Valentine Love Circus - DAY 8 - Pipe Cleaner Heart Sticks - free printables  #vintage #ephemera #valentine #circus #clown #freebie

I’m thinking to give some of them away as little Valentine’s gifts, there will still be plenty left in my Love Circus 😀
