I'm finally getting around to decorating my house for Valentines day. However, since it is my first Valentines Day here in Australia I am starting completely from scratch. Here are some of my favorite decorating ideas & tutorials of which I hope to make/ use this year:
I absolutely love this ribbon wreath and will
attempt to make my own this year.
Here is the tutorial from Deep fried kudzu.
I also love this white burlap no-sew wreath tutorial from Diary of a craftaholic.
This beautiful FREE printable Valentines bunting is from Tricia Rennae
& is destined to hang in my living room.
As is this FREE printable mini heart banner from Prettyfnmess.
If I had more room in my tiny townhouse I would
make this Valentines tree from Beth @ The stories of A to Z
And decorate it with these woven paper heart ornaments from Craft ideas.
As well as these FREE printable heart ornaments from The toy maker.
I also like the idea of making a wish tree for Valentines
day like this one from Kind over matter
When K is older we can make these crayon shaving hearts together
from Skip to my Lou. I can't wait!
This heart garland from Martha Stewart is also cute.
Hope I've given you a little inspiration to craft away & beautify you house for Valentines day!
On an exciting side note I finally figured out how to make my own button for this blog. This is a very big deal because the previous version of myself was pretty much computer illiterate (insert huge applause & a pat on the back here). It only took me about 3.5 hours to get it right! HAH! I may not have showered yet, am still sitting in front of the computer with messy hair, dark black circles under my eyes and stains on my shirt from tonights dinner, attempting to post this blog with a half crippled & cramping hand, BUT, I finally got it right & am feeling mighty proud of myself!
Anyways, the moral of this rant is that if you like my blog, use my ideas or link back here in one of your blog posts, please grab a button & give me a shout out.
Thanks & good night! :)
