valentine’s decor

valentine's decor at the pleated poppy

i am not a big decorator for the smaller holidays (basically anything other than christmas), but it sure doesn’t look like it in these pictures!

i’m don’t love the idea of buying new decorations each year for the holidays, so i make do with what i have and what i can make on my own.  so i tend to reuse previous year’s decorations, but with a little bit different styling.  call me cheap!

 i got these paper flowers from consumer crafts awhile back when i ordered my bandanas for my chevron bandana quilt.  and they’re on sale still!  the set came with a few other colors that i used for joy’s adoption shower.

the antlers are still up from christmas, and will probably hang out there for awhile.

funny story about this pompom garland:  i was in the craft section of walmart and saw yarn in pink, aqua, and red (a good red is hard to find in yarn!), so i grabbed them to make this pompom garland for valentine’s day.  um, apparently i am very forgetful because i had already made this garland last year.  so now i have yarn to return.  because all i do with yarn is make pompoms!

 these fun little jars have been recirculating on pinterest again!  i loved them so much last year that i just did them again, but with all aqua jars this time.  here’s a link to where i got the idea from originally.

 i grabbed a few of my pretty vintage books to set the jars at different heights and add a bit more color.

i made this fabric wrapped wire word at craft weekend.  everyone else was so creative with lots of colors and different fabrics, but i was boring with just one.

 once i actually got out my small bag holding all our valentine’s decor (after i already bought the yarn), i realized that when i added my new valentines bunting (sold out in the shop – sorry!  i’ll make more next year) that i now had 5 garlands just for valentine’s day!  ri.dic.u.lous.  i only wanted one garland on my mantle this year, so i used the others around the house elsewhere, like here over our front porch windows.

i love the look of 2 garlands swagged, so i used a fabric bunting and also the paper one i sewed up last year.

 remember my glitter heart shirt i cut up and remade?  i couldn’t throw away the cute glittery heart, so i just stuck it to the wall under my button monogram.

i did buy these cute little mail boxes for the kids while at target on a date with gracie.  at a buck a piece, i couldn’t resist!  i told the kids it was for writing love notes to each other… trying to encourage sibling love ;)

    Love your blog, Lindsey. Grabbed my doilies and baker’s twine and dressed up some Mason jars last night. Thanks for the inspiration. Thought of you when I saw these jars on Nora Griffin’s blog. http://www.justmakestuff.com/ndg/2013/01/jars.html One more use for your yarn. :)
