My no sew Valentine's banner.
To make the no sew banner we painted bare wooden mini clothes pins a fun pink. Then Teagan, my toddler daughter went crazy with glitter on these adorable felt hearts!
We punched out flower circles using coordinating scrap book paper and added two holes at the top so we could thread them. The string we used is a bright pink cord from Hobby Lobby for about $2. Finally, I had extra tulle hanging about so we added bits of it to fill the banner in and add a bit of girly fun! I love the way it turned out and it took just a few minutes!
Here's the felt wreath I posted earlier. This year I was so into pinks instead of reds! Check out the tutorial here.
My fun cupcake liner wreath! I'd love to try one of these in white. Here's the tutorial for making this.
I used scrapbook paper to cover a few books and add more color. In the future I would recommend wrapping paper as it would fit better. I just discovered Mod Podge and had a fun time making these scrapbook paper frames for the girls. Here's the post on how I did it!
I added a few mini paper flowers as vase fillers, some flowers and a pink candle. Finally, I topped it with a pink iron Eiffel Tower from Hobby Lobby that is normally in Teagan's room...and voila! Our mantel for 2012! We went from zero Valentine's decorations to these fun items this year. I can't wait to add more...but next up is the "greeeeeeeeeeeeen" holiday, Teagan's favorite from Daddy's country of Ireland. So stay tuned for all kinds of lucky fun!
