I'm a big fan of decorating for the seasons. Really. I am.
I have decorations for Easter, and Thanksgiving, and Christmas. (LOTS of decorations for Christmas!)
But for Valentine's Day, not so much.
However, this year, I decided to put some up. Some HOMEMADE ones. You see, my inspiration over at Flowerpatchfarmgirl made these lovelies.
I didn't have a heart punch like hers, so I just folded magazine papers in beautiful colors in half, and free-handed the hearts.
HUNDREDS of hearts while I was watching a movie one day.
It took me an entire 2 hour movie to make these. (Probably would've went faster with a punch...I priced them in the store...but it wasn't worth it.)
I just used my tape runner to attach them all together, and put them on long pieces of embrodery floss I had in my sewing box.
I think I like flowerpatchgirl's are a lot better....but mine do the job.
Then I added some decorations I already had.
Helps that I have red throughout the house anyway.
It's comin' ya'll. The Holiday is upon us.
Don't hesitate to tell your sweetheart/kids/anyone you love them. NOW!
