I have recently decided that I am going to start decorating my home for whatever holiday is in a given month. What brought this on? After I take down all the Christmas decorations, our home looks incredibly bare! From October through December the house is full of holiday decorations and very festive. I would love for our home to look like that all year round.
My husband would not be happy if I spent money on Valentine's decorations, so I had to put my thinking cap on and become crafty.
This is what I came up with and it cost me just $4.00! It will have a home in the center of the mantle, along with some other things.
I bought this board at the craft store for $1.00 and I had the paint on hand.
I asked my husband to make me a frame out of his pile of scrap wood pieces, then I painted it red.
I bought some candy conversation hearts in the bulk candy section of the grocery store. I used one pound's worth for $2.50. While my husband I were watching a movie, I sat and hot glued these hearts onto the board. All 318 of them.
I thought about attaching a ribbon to hang this up, but then decided that it would look best on the mantle.
I am posting this over at The Girl Creative for her link party, Just Something I Whipped Up Monday.
