Valentine Decor

Hey guys. I have been searching blogs everywhere for inspiration. Not just crafts, but organization, cleaning, parenting, exercising, etc. Look on my sidebar for a lot of the sites. Sometimes I need a swift kick in the pants. Hmm, as I sit here in PJs and munch on chocolate cinnamon bears (THE best treat ever). I'm working on it! Anyway, I found some great, easy crafts to do for Valentine's Day. It was a perfect way to be productive while watching my guilty pleasure shows.

I found the great idea for felt kissing balls and wreath from The Idea Door, who apparently got her idea from Design Sponge. I, for the life of me, could not find a heart shaped wreath anywhere, so another round one will have to do.
Did I mention its a cheap project too?
Felt, wreath, pins, pack of 6 styrofoam balls = $10
My lovely "mantel".
I love how versatile these balls are. You can hang them, put them on vases and candle holders, put them in baskets, pretty much anywhere.
Here's a close-up of the wreath. It was my idea to add the red felt flowers. :)

You would laugh at how simple these flowers are to make. Less than a minute. Seriously. Learn how to make them here.

Not part of my mantel, but there are all kinds of free printables for Valentine Subway art. Mine was found here.

So there you have it. I don't think I'm done yet though. Too many good ideas out there to try!

How cute! I'm not much for Valentine's decor, but I think I just changed my mind!:) I'm so glad that you're doing this blog!!! Keep it up!

So you inspired me to try this too! Apparently all of Logan is out of red felt, so I'm going to try it with some really thin fleece. We'll see how it works!
