I decided that I needed to get a move on the Valentines decorating since it is only uhm 2 days away.
Hmm. I knew I wasn’t going out anywhere to buy any decorations because I’m pretty much
cheap and not spending any money right now quarantined due to the fact that I’m ill. So I decided I’d try my hand at a craft. I found these really beautiful printouts over at Crafts & Sutch and they were just too dang pretty not to print out and create something with.
Just the inspiration the doctor ordered!
Now, mind you, I have not made a craft since I was in high school
15 3 years ago and I had no idea about what I was actually trying to do, nor did I have anything other than regular boring house stuff and the super cute lovely paper.
So here is what I did:
I printed up the 4 sheets of cutesy love song papers and a paper heart cut out that I just found by Googling “paper heart cut out.”
It was tricky, but I survived. Just kidding, it wasn’t hard at all!
Next, I looked around for some sturdy paper and found some on top of the fridge because naturally that’s where it belongs.
Then I grabbed:
2 paper bags
the heart cut out
the pretty paper
and dental floss
oh, and a glass of wine. But it’s totally up to you if you need that to create this super amateur craft (or just need it to finish reading the rest of this post… I don’t judge)
And here are a few pictures:
I very easily cut out a total of 16 hearts using the template so they would all be the same size
Sprayed the adhesive on the card stock, poster board, whatever it might be called paper
Put the hearts on it
Flipped the paper over and sprayed it
Put pieces of the paper bags on it (I cut it up) right side down
Flipped the paper back over and started to cut out the hearts (this was the longest part)
I then threaded the needle with the dental floss and with my handsome assistants help I placed the hearts about two inches apart from one another
After that I hung the garland from my mantel!
Quick and easy, VERY!
Fun, HECK YEAH!
Make a craft and decorate for Valentines day crossed off the list, YOU BETCHA!
I hope all you lovely ladies get flowers and all of you men get lots of kisses!
