I’m not a cutesy wootsie kind of girl. I’m not big on foof or frills or flounces. So I am still unsure how much I am loving my widdle biddy Valentine’s decorations I made today. We’ll see if they last the week.
I bought a nice wooden tray at a thrift store the other day. I tried it out in a few spots around my living room, but it was either too big for the space, or it was where my son could reach it (and turn it into a step stool, racetrack, bongo drum….) so it ended up on the dining room table. But an empty tray sitting alone on a dining room table is just sad, you know?
I lined the tray with some paper I got in a pack from the Dollar Spot at Target. I didn’t glue it down or cut it to fit, I just folded it to the right size and set it in there.
The H is a magnet that I found in the Dollar Spot too. The teapot was my grandmother’s and I love it.
I cut some thin strips of one the coordinating papers and quilled some paper hearts. I just used a wooden skewer for my quilling tool, and swiped a glue stick on each curl to form them into a heart shape.
While I was cutting up the scrapbook paper, I made a new sleeve for my Febreeze Luminary.
Yeah, they are a little cutesy for my usual taste, but I am going to keep them up for a few days to see if they grow on me. Do you do any non-frilly Valentine’s day decorating?
