Valentine Crafts & Home Decor

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday! Well, it's official, Valentine's Day is just around the corner! I must admit, I love Valentine's Day!! Blogging has really brought out my creative side, and I'm so excited to share my Valentine's decor with everyone.

I really, really love this hanging heart! I picked it up at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. It has such a country feel and looks fabulous on my front door! It even has a little iron key hanging from the ribbon on the front! It's way too cute! Hobby Lobby really had some great decor items that are perfect for indoor or outdoor use. I love the store so much! We go there when we have time to look around and really enjoy a day out!

These cute little hearts I purchased at Dollar Tree. They are pink in color and full of glitter! I love all the sparkles! I got a pack of 5 of the hearts in various sizes for $1.00! Can't beat that deal!! I knew instantly what I wanted to do with them. I purchased the little owls, ladybugs and frogs in a craft pack at Hobby Lobby for $3.00, and then I got some red and baby blue glitter glue at Wal-Mart to decorate the hearts with. It didn't take me very long to decorate these hearts and make them totally adorable! I must caution everyone ... it does take a couple of days for the glitter glue to dry. So make sure the glue is completely dry before you hang your hearts up for decorations. Otherwise, the glue will run!

This is what my finished wall looks like now that the hearts are up! I really love it. When you walk into our house, this is the first thing you see! Before I added the hearts, all I had up on this wall was my cute mirror and our clock. It looked so plan. I love the blast of color that is up there now! I don't really anticipate on taking these down once Valentine's Day is over. I think they might stay up a little longer! If you notice, at first I had one empty heart with no writing. After a few days of having this up, I discovered what I wanted to write on the heart so now it looks different.

This is what my hearts look like now! I love them so much. One has our name, our wedding year and the other has the names of our 2 four-legged friends; adding their names on the last heart really completed the look! My dear hubby and son even loves the hearts!

Ah, another project in the books  :)

The is my last decor project. I also purchased a red fringe heart at the Dollar Tree. At first, I didn't know how I was going to attach it to my hook. Then, I found some cute pink ribbon with black polka-dots at Wal-Mart. It totally worked! I love how it looks hanging on my utility door. I love how it's so simple to turn inexpensive items into great decor pieces for your home!

I hope you all love the projects! Feel free to share yours with me on Thursday during my Inspire Me! Thursdays link-up!

From my front porch to yours,
