Well since we took down our Christmas decorations, the house has looked so bare! I've been seeing all these great Valentine decoration ideas on blogs and thought I would get started with some of my own.
I knew as soon as we took down the tree, I wanted to make some heart ornaments for a "love tree"! I finally got them done this weekend.
So, all I did was cut out some felt hearts with my pinking shears in some different sizes. I tried to glue them together with a little stuffing, but the glue didn't work out. So I sewed them together on my machine. (I'm not much for hand work!)
Then my daughter and husband put the rhinestones on some of them! Daddy was into the whole thing! He even got out some of the lights from Christmas and put them on the mantle!
So, I got this idea from Jen over at Tatertots and Jello. (awesome blog, you should check her out. She even has a giveaway going on right now!) She did X's and O's, but I will have to rob some frames from elsewhere in the house to add to this.
This is just scrapbook paper with some floral gems!
Then I just added a big candle with some scrapbook paper and a bow! I saw this idea on Lemonade Makin' Mama's blog.
So, this is what the table looks like so far! You can see the lights in the background. I plan to add a banner to the mantle and I have some cute blocks on the way that I won in a giveaway! I'll take a pic and let you know where to get your own!
I would have posted sooner, but I have been busy making these...
It's hard to see in the picture, but there are close to 100 little rhinestones on the "h". I still have some more to make, and I just bought a bunch on tshirts, so I'll be putting them in my shop soon. I also just got loads of flip flops, so order away! (I know, I am shameless)
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
And Happy Birthday Alex!
