It has been too long since I posted last!
Got a little Valentines Day craft for you today!
Our house has been a bit neglected over the last month or so,
with so many things that have been going on in our lives.
So last weekend the kids and I decided it was time to get our festivities on!
We took an afternoon together, and pulled out my scrapbook paper stash
to make some simple and festive Valentines Day decorations.
We made a
I had in my mind that I wanted to make some of these 3D paper hearts
that I had seen and pinned onto my board on Pinterest.
When I went to make them there wasn’t a tutorial at the time, so I just took a guess on how they were made. But just recently (today) I saw that a tutorial was put up and I see that I actually made mine different – I used 3 hearts instead of 4. So either method would work…4 would be pretty cool though…
Ok but seriously, could my hands look any drier?!
Good golly…I only have about 20 bottles of hand creme around here, you’d think I could use some?!
Then to finish it off, in the centre of the top of the heart, (like above)
I glued in a 7 inch piece of string, so that I could hang them.
To put together the garland, I tied the string in the hearts onto another piece of string that was long enough to span my mantel. I just tied them on by making little bows. (see below)
So pretty easy, right?! It’s also a great project to do with your kids!
Simple and festive.
