Valentines DIY

February 03, 2014


Add a touch of love to your home with a few easy peasy DIY Valentines decorations.  I gathered up my girls and we had so much fun putting these quick little decorations together and it added just the right amount of love to my mantle!
 

I purchased the love and the letters from Hobby Lobby.  I didn't want it to be heavy wood and not a lot of money invested so I choose chipboard letters.  The burlap pennant came in a package of four so that was perfect. 

So here is all you need:




We painted all the letters red except out O we painted white.  Once dry we added hearts.  That's all there was too it!


Anna traced around the love letters on her pennant to paint while I painted my pennants a pink.  I was going for a distressed look with some of the burlap not covered as well as other spots.  When my pink was dry I took a round sponge paint brush and added the polka dots and Anna added polka dots in two sizes to her unpainted burlap.  FYI The love letters and the hearts took two coats to get a good rich red.


 I cut out a heart template and lightly traced it onto my pennants.  I painted the hearts red and then added glitter glue to add the sparkle!  I know....... glitter in my house! Blasphemy!   Love the glitter glue because it adheres so well without flecking off.



A few mini clothes pins and a pink twine and its a darling addition to my mantle! Oh, and if your wondering about my ombre heart...... I shared how I made it here



What do you think?  Love it?
