Valentines Day Decor

I love Valentines Day, its always been one of my favorite Holidays. I love the pinks, reds, hearts, cookies, candies.... or maybe that's because its close to my birthday!

Even though I love the Holiday I have not decorated much for it this year.

I finally got around to putting away my Christmas pillows and made a new Valentines pillow. For some reason I didn't take any in between pictures, but this one was pretty straight forward. I cute 9 hearts by hand (no Silhouette this time, I know!!!) I used some Under Wonder and ironed them on, and then outlined the hearts with my sewing machine. (Don't look, but I am learning how to sew so my lines aren't great!!!) The 3 middle heart's are made from a Target dish towel.


I also put together a little valentines day decor on our mantel. I really like the simple love frame (made with the same Target dish towel!!!) and I think its going to have a permanent place in my craft room - since my craft room colors are red, black and turquoise!

  7. These are great! I grabbed some of those hearts you've made a garland from at Target during the after Christmas clearance, just knowing they'd be great for Valentines, but I've been drawing a blank till now! I'm going to get my daughter to put one of those together now :) Thanks for linking up to our Valentines linky party!

  12. The garlands are super cute! And the heart pillow is so fun! I think I would have cheated and used my Silhouette. You did an amazing job cutting those all by hand!
