Valentines Day Inspiration 2014

Valentine's Day is two weeks away.
Earlier this week it was around -30 degrees here, so it was fun just camping out in the house all day and avoiding the cold!  Perfect time to get festive for February 14th :)

The two framed hearts on the right are free printables from Tatertots and Jello.

I made the wreath, framed heart, and banner a couple years ago.  You can find those links here.

This year we added a few arrows in the mix.  I used sticks, felt, and a glue gun to hold it all together.  

We filled a jar with a little Epsom salt and added some sticks and wood hearts. 

A mini vial with Epsom salt and a paper heart.

Happy Creating :)

Valentine Heart Wreath {without a hole}

Rolling these little flowers takes forever, but goes quickly late at night when the kids are in bed and I'm catching up on the DVR.  :)

I cut a big heart out of a piece of thick and sturdy cardboard.  I covered that with red paper just in case I didn't glue my flowers close enough and the cardboard peeked through.

I rolled the flowers using the same tutorial I used on this Valentine wreath.

A few burned finger tips later I had all my felt flowers hot glued in place :)

 Every single time I make a wreath, I always forget to attach the ribbon or wire for hanging before I start.  Every single time!  You would think I'd learn...sigh.
So when I was finished gluing and finally remembered, I poked through the cardboard with wire to attach a ribbon for hanging.  
I hope that holds... 

Happy creating all :)
