My attempt at Valentines Decor :)

Oh my goodnes...I have crafted ALL day long. Well, as much of the day that you CAN craft when you have 4 little ones :) And if you don't believe me, come look at the disaster that is my home :) Although its rare, most of my projects turned out alright and I thought I would share.

I was inspired by a lot of different bloggers. I patterned my LOVE frame after the one at Crap I've Made...hers is absolutly adorable!

I also was inspired by the darling garland from A Pumpkin and a Princess, it is just precious.
With those credits given, here is my take on Valentine Decor. I have a few more finishing touches for tomorrow and then I'll post a complete finished photo.


As you can tell my colors are turquoise, hot pink and light pink. I wanted to have different textures so I added a bunch of burlap and yarn...their not popular or anything, are they?! ;)

I simply wrapped some styrafoam balls with yarn and glued the end on and then wrapped a styrafoam wreath form with burlap strips and topped it off with some hot pink tulle. SO easy...all of it took me about 45 minutes.

I blogged my Kind Words printable earlier this week, next to that I just wrapped some more yarn around a glass vase I had in my basement. I actually LOVE how it turned out.

It adds a modern, funky look to our decor...I am loving the yarn!

For my LOVE frame I just spraypainted a large black frame white. Then I covered the cardboard with burlap and hotglued it on the back. Then I ModPodged the chipboard letters with some fun coordinating fabric and it was finished. I LOVE this big, eye-catching piece!!

Finally for our garland I just glued two doilies together, laced a piece of yarn through them and had myself a cute little garland to tie it all together.

It all came together quite nicely, I must say!! I guess that is the upside to being a VERY inconsistent crafter...you are thrilled when something actually works out! :)



Happy Go Lucky
