Some of the things we were up to on our Valentine's Decorating days last week...
A heart garland as shown on Martha Stewart, Valentine's Day Garland.
It includes a pdf pattern, the hearts are nesting so there's less waste. Sticking the bottom of the hearts back together works best with scotch tape over both pieces, then flipped to the wall so nobody sees.
Some hanging paper hearts, as seen on my girl Carrie's tutorial here, and the single strip hearts are made by curling the round part inside around a pencil, then stapling together on the inside. I stuck some extras over the front doorway and the office.
Gummy Hearts, as instructed here on Skip to my Lou, Gummy Candy
(We used heart ice cube molds from target. The gummy candy is ok, the cherry flavors definately have more flavor than the lime ones we made)
Heart Clips! As inspired by Dana at Made It.
Phrases I used: UR A star, Honey Bun, I love you, For Cute, Good Un (its an inside joke with John and I) X0X0, Cutie Pie, Baby Love, Little Hug, Little Kiss, Big Hug, Big Kiss (like from Nacho Libre)
As I was glueing the letters I thought of even better ones...like Babe-a-licious and Hot Stuff, Mama's Boy, Daddy's Girl, Kiss Me U Fool, and Wink Wink. Oh well, maybe next year.
I've seen all kinds of things Conversation heart themed this year...shirts, hair clips, cupcakes, clay necklaces, the list goes on...
