Valentine's Day decor ideas


I'm feeling very RED this week and super inspired to create Valentine projects to add to my decor. I don't have very many items for Valentine's Day it seems.  So I searched blogs etc for tutorials for inspiration....

Such as this Valentine card made with fabric or a Heart Pin from Purl Bee...
or
Charm pack vase wraps.....


Which I made today :) with left over charms of Love is In the Air Moda charm pack.
and
Felted Hearts by Cross Creek Primitives....

How about another fabric wreath?
I made this Valentine style wreath last weekend using an 8 inch wreath and Love is In the Air Moda charm pack...

plus I caught a blog that Nicole from Raggedy Old Annies had added new dolls for sale. I promptly bought these...



I just thought the little boy in the red polka dot pants was too hard to pass up.
And actually at Thanksgiving break in Iowa, I had thought a bit about Valentines' Day when I stumbled onto this scrapbooking paper by K and Company. I picked up 3 small frames as well.

With a bit of cutting and a few minutes to mount...I ended up with them little Valentine-y frames..

My girls ♥ them.

So anyhow, I spent the day finishing things here and there.  I bound a tablerunner at G's basketball game, pieced some of a new MBS project, sewed binding on another tablerunner, finished the vase wrap, started machine quilting another tablerunner and then we started re-doing my 2 year olds closet.  What a crazy day here! Tomorrow...who knows, maybe I will finish quilting the runner? and finish the closet....
we shall see.
