First up is this canvas with fabric hearts. I saw the idea originally at Quilt Story. It cost about $3.50 in supplies for the canvas, paint, and foam brushes. I already had Mod Podge and lots of fabric! Anna and her daddy painted the canvas and arranged and glued the hearts.
Next up is this cute mason jar. Amy from MomAdvice linked to the idea here in her article talking about using Goodwill finds to decorate. I used a spaghetti sauce jar that I kept because it had a really cute shape, a paper doily, a felt heart, and some red and white baker's twine. We are using it to hold a candle.
Here is our tulle wreath. I used 3 spools of tulle (15 yards on each spool, $1.50 or so each after coupon) and a foam wreath form ($3). I cut each piece of tulle at around 16" and tied each one on the wreath form.
I don't have a picture of our last project, but Anna really wanted to make a paper chain. So we made a heart shaped paper chain and it is on her miniature pink tinsel Christmas tree in her room.
Here's a photo of the whole Valentine display - it is on the top of a large wooden filing cabinet we have. I found the bird houses at a garage sale and leave those up year round. I also love the little silver owl - it was an after Christmas clearance purchase at Target.
We might do a few more Valentine projects, but this will be most of it. We had a lot of fun and it used up some supplies we had on hand!
How much decorating do you do for Valentine's Day? Any favorite ideas?
