Valentine ornaments, spun cotton toadstools

 I set up a tiny little valentine swap on Instagram this year. It turns I HAVE missed the valentine swapping.  I wanted to stretch my wings a little bit so I made spun cotton toadstools on candle clips.
 I bought the balls that I made the caps with, but I made the stems from cotton balls of all things.  Then many, many, many coats of paint later I glittered them and glued on German butterflies and moths.
 It was quite an interesting craft actually. It does take days and days though.
I rewatched the old videos of Crystal making spun cotton Easter decorations on the Martha Stewart show to get me started with the cotton part.

I really hope the ladies like them!
