I just borrowed the ultimate sappy, tear inducing, love gone wrong-gone right, Valentine’s movie from our community library.
You see, I needed to get in the mood. (Yes, the mood.)
The mood for decorating with love, hugs and kisses, that is.
Playing around with Valentine’s decor is such fun! I enjoy it because I can go to crazy town with one of my favorite hues (Pink!). I also like the fact that just a little valentine love can make a big impact. (So no need to store tote after tote of cupid decor in the sweltering attic.)
I made a simple mini heart garland yesterday.
Quite easy, really.
All I did was punch out a bunch of hearts with my nifty heart puncher. I used three different patterns of pink scrapbook paper. I then stretched out a string of pink and white baker’s twine and placed 21 hearts (face down) equal distance from each other along the length of the string. Next, I added a drop of Elmer’s glue to each heart (touching the string) and placed another heart (face up) on top. (Kind of like a tiny paper heart sandwich.)
And that’s it.
Now, I never did watch that cry fest of a movie. (I guess I was in the mood for dancing hearts after all.)
Besides, I should probably stock up on more Kleenex first. (You just can’t be too careful when watching that dreamy Ryan Gosling in The Notebook.)
So what about you? Any happy valentine projects displayed in you home? (Or do you need to get in the mood, first?)
