Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentines Day

I don’t usually put up Valentine’s Day decorations but when I took my Christmas decorations down the whole house almost looked naked!  Since I will use almost any excuse to break out the glue gun and craft paint, I decided to make some decorations this year.  I didn’t want to break the bank, so I picked most of my pieces from Michaels Craft Store (you can’t beat a 40% coupon) and the dollar store.

Valentines Day

Our mantel has a huge mirror above it.  For a long time I couldn’t figure out how to add a decoration to it until I realized I could use a command hook that is applied to the mirror with an adhesive strip. I made a pretty red wreath using paper roses to hang from the hook.  I made the roses using craft paper then I hot glued them onto a green floral wreath that I painted a light pink just in case the color of the wreath showed through.

Valentines Day LettersI also found some fun wooden letters at the dollar store in my town.  I painted them a light pink and white using craft paint.  I was able to use left over paint that I had, and the letters were a $1 a piece.   They are so cute and were so easy to do!

Painted Valentines Day HeartsThis mirror in my dining room is so so very plain. (It’s going to have to go soon.)  I decided to add some painted hearts to dress it up a bit.  The hearts are just paper hearts from Michaels that I painted red, pink, and white.  (Don’t forget to paint the back)  I hot glued a piece of ribbon to the back of each of the hearts so that I could hang them from the back of the mirror.
