Hooray for Valentines Day!

I made some fun Valentines decorations that I wanted to share with all of you!!

Pennant banners are all the rage right now, and so is I cut out some X's and O's with my silhouette, and stenciled them on. Then I added some glitter to the letters and around the outside. I love how it sparkles at night when the chandelier is on!

I have some twigs in a vase on my fireplace mantel. I decided to cut some hearts out of old book pages and some with just regular cardstock using the silhouette. I just hung them on the twigs and it added a cute little Valentine touch!

I Love to take pictures of my little ladies!! I change the pictures for every Holiday! I love having my kids be part of my decorating. They really have a lot of fun with this! For Halloween they all wore witch hats, and for Christmas they were dressed in lime green sitting in front of a lighted tree. Its fun to edit the pictures and add sayings or poems. For Valentines I spelled the word LOVE!

I had some left over Burlap, so I just bought some wreath forms from the dollar store and wrapped strips of burlap around them. This project seriously took only 15 minutes, and I love how it turned out! I just tied some ribbon around it, and added some felt flowers and it turned out great!

Everyone has probably seen these coffee filter wreaths. I made this one last fall, and it has had a few different looks! I used a grapevine wreath form from the dollar store, and then just folded and glued the filters on. I love that it cost me only 3 dollars! For Halloween I used a foam stencil brush and just dabbed a little black on the edged. It looked darling! Then at Christmas I did the same thing over top of the black with gold paint. Then I added some glitter while the paint was still wet. So....why not change it again? I added pink paint and red glitter for Valentines day! I sure have gotten my 3 dollars worth out of it!
