Love is in the Air . . . Let’s Decorate!



Hello and Happy Wednesday!  If you came over from Decorate to Celebrate isn’t this Valentine decor just screaming sweet nothings! Before I get into the mushy details of this love fest decor, I have my own news to shout from the roof tops!  I am just thrilled to announce that this is my first post as a design team member for Decorate to Celebrate!  I have always loved that challenge blog and it has always inspired me.  To be a part of their team is just an amazing honor!  Make sure you pop over, get inspired, create and link back up!  We really want to see what you got cookn’ in the the Hallmark Holiday of Love department! dtc5 This project was a fun project to create.  I came back from CHA very inspired and creatively energized!  I had it planned out in my head for some time, but needed to roll up my sleeves and get on with it.  As you can see there are a lot of components but all were very easy to execute and on the C-H-E-A-P (music to the hubs ears)!    dtc 3 The pennants and stands were made in just a couple hours and the materials list was SHORT! PLUS IT WAS NO SEW!!!!!! All you need is fabric of your choice, yarn and wooden porch railing decor found at Home Depot, craft paint, hot glue, scissors, and sand paper!  I hand crocheted the bows . . .  look  HERE for the tutorial! dtc 4 This bouquet of love was so simple.  The metal tin came from the Target dollar bin and I rounded up some Valentine cupcake wrappers along with a foam ball and some straight pins.  This was made with 75 cupcake wrappers. All I did was fold the wrapper in half and “scrunch” the bottom and pin to the foam ball.  Continue until all the wrappers cover the area that does not fit inside the bucket! dtc 2 Now on to the heart shaped yarn wreaths!  If you have followed me for a while, you will know that I have a thing for making yarn wreaths.  I find them relaxing. I guess this is my version of knitting or crocheting.  It was super simple, just pick up some foam heart wreaths for around $2 each and some yarn! Tie a knot at one end of the yarn and then pin it to the back of the wreath and just get your wrap on and knot the end and pin it! dtc1 Last but certainly not least, YARN BALLS!  This was my first time tackling these little guys, but after being the master of yarn wreaths, this was easy peasy!  All I did was gather up 12 small foam balls, using the same technique as I did for making the wreaths.  A great project for indulging on bad reality TV and being  a couch potato!

I finished the project with a few pieces I picked up from Michael’s and Hobby Lobby’s home decor and Valentine section using as a container for the yarn balls, the love birds and glitter hearts.

I hope this was an inspiration and got you in the mood for crafting love!  Be sure to head over to Decorate to Celebrate and link up any Valentine decor projects you are working on for either a party or your home! Thanks for sharing a piece of “love for decor” pie with me!
