DIY Valentine's Day Box Frame Workshop with Make Do & Trend at Pretty Things

Valentine's Day Frame Craft DIY Workshop - Make Do & Trend

Yesterday evening I attended yet another craft event run by Kirsty from Make Do & Trend, hosted at Pretty Things in Horsham. If you regularly check in with my blog, you'll remember that before Christmas I went to a Kitsch Christmas Wreath Making themed one (which you can read here). And I have to say this event was just as fabulous as the last!

Inspired by Valentine's Day, we were creating our own box frames in this workshop. Before the event each of us was allowed to select a four-letter word to feature in our frame, since it was Valentine's inspired, most of us went for the word 'love' whilst others experimented with their vocabulary! What I loved most about this idea though is how versatile it is, you could frame anything from home or baby, to even a gardening themed one with grow - you have complete freedom on this one!

From then on there was some painting and papercraft, in order to achieve our gorgeous little frames! I have to say I was in my element with the vintage floral papers, everything was so inspiring and I can definitely see myself giving all my friends and family one of these frames as future gifts.

No craft session is complete without a generous slice of cake from Pretty Things though! (If you haven't heard of it, it's basically Horsham's equivalent of Peggy Porschen!) After the mermaid cake I sampled last time, this time I decided to trial the rainbow cake - tantalising for the tastebuds and a feast for the eyes!

As a group we actually got so into our crafting that we were completely surprised to find that it was nearly time to leave for the evening, I guess it's true that time flies when you're having fun.

I really cannot recommend Kirsty's workshops enough though, whether you're a crafting extraordinaire, or just starting out her workshops really are suited to all abilities - with a little extra support from Kirtsy herself if you find yourself getting muddled! It's a fun, friendly environment, with like-minded individuals to just relax and craft with excellent cake - musn't forget the cake!

Until next time..
