My days are normally full to overflowing with diapers, dishes, and discipling. Somewhere in there, my formerly-crafty-creative self gets squished down and I often come to the end of the day without having created so much as a well-executed meal (pancakes for dinner again?). That’s why I like crafty stuff that I can whip up in a matter of minutes. With my kids at the table creating alongside me. With minimal supplies. And minimal clean-up. A tall order, right? Well, this little idea delivers.
Valentine’s Day is in two days. Or tomorrow, if you’re reading this on Wednesday, which you probably are, since I’m writing it at 11:17pm. (Oh life, you are kicking my butt lately.) Anyway, this is a really cute way to pretty up your space in this season of love. I am a big fan of V-Day, actually. I know it’s way cooler to be all “Valentine’s Day is a holiday designed solely by Hallmark for profit and I don’t need a day to tell me when to love my honey blah blah blah”.
I still love Valentine’s Day. I love love. Love is rad. I don’t just mean romantic love, by the way.
God is love.
Fall asleep tonight pondering that one, would ya? It makes my brain hurt to think about the awesomeness wrapped up in those three little words.
So, a heart garland. Or a banner. Um, whichever it is. Here’s how I made it…
2 sheets of craft felt, one dark pink and one light pink
Fold your sheet of craft felt over a couple inches, and cut a heart shape out.
Cut as many as you can, depending on how big you make them (which is totally up to you).
Fold again and cut more, and continue until you’ve used the whole sheet.
Cut your ribbon into 3 inch pieces. Glue the ribbon and hearts together with the hot glue gun.
If you use a wide ribbon like mine, you will want to angle it slightly up when you glue it, so that it drapes nicely. Glue the ends into a loop for easy hanging.
Hang and enjoy!
What are your Valentine’s Day plans? Do you love the holiday like I do? Or are you not really a fan?
