The crafty little Valentine’s day project I alluded to last week ended up being presentable. Although, I wonder if I should be embarrassed to admit that both my Friday AND Saturday nights were spent elbow-deep in paper, glue, and string? Yikes.
Anyhoo, V-day is a fun little holiday and I’ve been seeing so many cutie-cute V-day ideas that I wanted to copy (for awesome V-day crafts, or actually, crafts of any kind, check out One Pretty Thing – it’s where I got the idea for this little project!).
I had a ton of red, pink, and white paper, as well as twine, fishing wire, and glue. I grabbed a heart punch from Michaels (with a coupon, of course – never go to Michaels without a coupon because it’s usually super-easy to google “Michaels coupon” and find one for 40-50% off). Cost of my purchase? $5 and I used a gift card. So technically, that means free.
I punched a whole bunch of hearts, put glue on the back of one, laid the fishing line/twine on the glue, and then put another heart on top – sort of like a fishing line/twine sandwich. Easy peasy.
As you can see above, the twine garland was hung on the fireplace (it’s been looking a little bare since I took down the Christmas decor).
The fishing line hearts are tied to the chandelier in the dining room. They kind of look like they’re floating.
Anyone else tackling some last-minute V-day decorations? What about presents? We’re going to exchange homemade no-spend Valentines this year and I could use a few ideas… Also, let me know if you try this – I’d love to see pictures!
