I did my very first DIY Pinterest project!
And I have to say, I am so happy with the result!
I found this idea and pinned it on my holiday board and I couldn't wait to recreate it myself.
It appeared to be very simple which is a bonus for me!
The kids really missed all of the Christmas decorations and kept asking about them so I was eager
to get started on this project so that we could move on to the next holiday!
My inspiration photo used a heart floral form but after visiting 3 different stores and no luck
finding a heart I decided to just go with a round form.
Also, my inspiration used red fabric, but I had this huge section of red felt that I had no use for
so I decided to use it instead.
I cut out TONS of red squares, probably 3 x 3 inches in size, but since my craft time is very limited I just eyeballed it. No time to measure over here!
Then, you just stick a pencil in the middle of the square, dip it in glue (I just borrowed some of the
kid's school glue) then push it into the foam.
I didn't take pics of the entire process, but you get the idea. You just cover the entire thing with the squares. I didn't even bother covering the back, just the front and sides.
And here is what I ended up with!
I found that cute little ornament thingie at Joann's and just pinned it to the back of the form
with a straight pin. Then I hung it to the door using fun ribbon and a Command hook.
I've got a few more ideas for the mantle that I'll share with you soon!
What about you? Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?
