Valentine's Day Decor

Hello everyone, Sara here. Can you believe it's almost Valentine's Day?? I can't!

After Christmas I always go check out the clearance sections to see if I need anything new to add to my Christmas decorations. Well this year at Target I found awesome felt heart ornaments at a cost of $0.10 for 3 of them!! I kind of went overboard and bought a ton, but I knew I could use them eventually.

My first thought to use the hearts was to make a garland. So I fiddled around until I figured out what I wanted to do. I have put together a mini-tutorial too!!

First I cut out the letters for "BE MINE" with my Cricut and traced them onto the back of a scrap piece of flannel after I had ironed Wonder Under onto the flannel.
Be sure to trace the letters in reverse!!
 Then I cut out a heart template (again with my Cricut) and traced that onto a piece of felt.

Once I had enough hearts and the letters cut out I ironed the letters onto the hearts.

With the letters and hearts ready I was ready to add them onto my Target hearts.  Again I ironed the hearts onto the larger hearts.  I used a scrap piece of knit to lay on top of my felt hearts so that the iron didn't melt the felt.

All of the hearts looked great, now all you have to do it tied them together!

I used thin pink ribbon, but you could use anything to tie the hearts together. 

Once done tying you are done, a brand new heart garland!

To finish off my Valentine's Day Decor, I printed off an adorable printable I found on Pinterest. I also made a quick wreath with pipe foaming, tissue paper, and felt heart stickers. 

I love my new decor and can't wait to see what I can find in the clearance section after Valentine's Day to add to it!!
