Simple Valentine’s Craft to add cheer

IMG_0859

I’m sure you are aware I like to get my craft on every now and again. I don’t have a lot of Valentine’s day décor, and I can’t seem to find anything I really like that I want to spend money on. So I decided to make a few inexpensive things to add to my décor, especially after taking all my Christmas décor down the house was feeling kind of sad and empty.

I first made this very simple very inexpensive Valentine’s Banner. I already had the scrapbook paper and my Silhouette Cameo to cut the banner for me. However if you don’t have a Silhouette no need to worry, most craft stores have banners pre-cut for you or you can cut your own from templates.

Once I cut the banner I measured some string to the length of the mantel on my fireplace, then used my paper punch to make holes for the string and presto! A cute festive banner, and it only took me about 45 minutes to make.

Second craft was this Valentine’s Deco Mesh Wreath, another easy project that only took about 90 minutes to make. You can find full instructions for this wreath at Michaels.com. Although I will say their instructions are not the greatest, luckily this is not my first wreath so I was able to get through this. If this is your first time making one, I would advise watch a tutorial on youtube. There is no right or wrong way to make these everyone does it just a bit differently.

Hope you like these two fun projects and share yours if you make some festive projects. I love seeing everyone’s creativity.
