Valentine Hanging

I love seeing all the Valentine decor floating around on Pinterest and in blogland.  To be honest, I have never decorated for Valentine’s Day.  But this year, I decided that my house just looks so plain without any decorations (read..beige walls, beige carpet, beige furniture).  Can you say rental???  So I definitely need a little red and pink decor this year.  Here is something that I whipped up this week. I had everything on hand so it was free! My 5-year-old daughter helped me with this and I love the way it turned out.

Tissue paper
Glue gun

Cut a heart shape out of cardboard. Using scissors, poke a hole near the top

Rip the tissue paper into small pieces and glue onto cardboard (Kids love this step and there really is no way that it can be messed up.)

When the entire heart is covered, let glue dry.

Hot glue a piece of coordinating ribbon around the edges of the heart to cover the exposed cardboard.
Thread another piece of the ribbon through the hole at the top. I attached a safety pin to the ribbon which made it easier to thread through the hole.

I hung it on my mirror on the mantel. I think it looks like it is covered in rose petals.  It reminds me of the floats in the Parade of Roses.

I can’t wait to add more “lovely” decorations to my house.

How are you decorating for Valentine’s Day?
