My sister brought some senior girls from her small group to Charlotte on Saturday and I knew they we going to stop by our house and before I knew what was happening, I had streamers and crafts and iced coffees ready for their arrival. It’s a sickness, when I know girlie folk are coming I can’t help but pinkify things.
We had such a fun time together and I had the supplies for a few different Valentine’s crafts:
Embroidery hoop art (remember all the different ways you can use them?!)
crepe paper garland from this tutorial at Oh Happy Day
Many of the little decorations were left over from the Girls Weekend Slumber Party thing, lots more inspiration like a Ballon-dalier and paper dot garland back at that post…
After everyone left I threw together a little hoop art display with thrifted embroidery hoops and 4 minute or less art on them. I used little command hooks so I didn’t have to make a million holes.
I’m not a huge, let-me-pull-out-my-red-and-pink-plastic-bins Valentine’s decorator. But I’ll take a few minutes and gather up what I have that’s in the red and pink family and be happy to display it. And now I have a few more little objects to use year around, and gather together during Valentine season.
Come back tomorrow and you can see how I got addicted to making cupid’s arrows all weekend too! No need to run to the craft store unless you want, you can probably shop the house.
What about you, do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?
