Last year when I pulled out my Valentine's Day decor, I found three things. I thought I had more, but apparently I was still in twin-induced fog brain. Well this year, I remembered that I only had three things, and have spent some time adding, inexpensively when possible, to our decor. Here are my new things:
This black shelf is in my kitchen and I try to decorate it for each holiday/season. I have always put out the jar filled with candy hearts, and the bigger white heart is out all the time, but everything else is new. The sweet little bird is from Hobby Lobby, and I made everything else. I had the white frames, so I just made some text boxes in word with some Valentine's words--so easy. I whipped up the pillow with some fabric scraps, in other words--free! But my favorite is the yarn wreath.
HERE. I love their version, but it is made for 8x10 porportions, and I wanted to put it in a 5x7 frame I already had. I just used a text box in Word, typed my words, changed the color and font, and then made it the right size. Again, super easy, and one I might replicate for other holidays.
HERE. They used 5x7 frames. I went with 8x10, and while I like the impact, I realized that it is hard to fit 3 frames that size in a row. Another inexpensive project. Frames: $3 each from Walmart. Letters: $1 each from Hobby Lobby. Red spray paint: $4 from Walmart. Glitter: $3 from Walmart. Paper: from my stash. Total: under $20, and I can reuse the frames for more holidays.
I have stuff to do one more project, but it doesn't look like I will be getting to that in time for Valentine's Day. Maybe. We'll see how the next few days go.
