Can you believe Valentine's Day is only four weeks away!?! It's such a fun holiday, with the red and the pink and all the hearts and love blooming!! This year, I've decided to make Valentine's Day even more fun with decorating for it, sharing the love, and blogging about what I'm doing! So for the next four Fridays, I'll be sharing my Valentines fun with you! DIYs, recipes, and ways to spread some love! So tune in each Friday! Today, I'm kicking it off with a couple really easy and cute decorations to brighten up your space!
For my two DIYs you will need:
Heart Ornaments: you can make these yourself by punching a hole through heart-shaped felt, or I bought mine at target in the dollar section after last Christmas.
Twine, Ribbon, or Yarn
Tulle, for decoration (optional)
DIY #1: Hanging Hearts
This DIY is SO easy, especially having ornaments, with the built in loop in the top! So start with one heart:
Punch another hole (if there isn't already one) in the bottom of that heart, and loop the string of another heart up through the hole like so:
And then pull the second heart (the purple one above) through the loop to connect it to the first one.
Then, hang on your wall using the string attached to the top heart. I stick a Command hook on the wall to make for easy removal after the holiday!
I hung mine in a small narrow area in my bedroom, which added the perfect touch! But you can hang it ANYWHERE, and add some V-Day fun!
DIY #2: Heart-"Felt" Garland
I'm a giant sucker for garlands! I love them and think they make the cutest decor, seasonal and all year round! Plus, this one is SO easy, which is always awesome!
Start by cutting your yarn. I did three strands that were 2 full arms lengths, but you can do any length that will fit the area you're wanting to decorate.
Tie a knot at each end to secure. You can also braid the yarn if you want that kind of look.
Then add your hearts! If your heart isn't already an ornament, make sure you have a loop of string at the top, and then do just like you did above to sort of tie the heart to the yarn, by looping it around and through.
And repeat until you're happy with the amount of hearts!
And then hang where you desire!
