Here's a craft we did to 'pretty up' the house for Valentine's Day.
I was at my local craft store the other day and they were selling off the last of their Christmas decorations for $1 a bag. Each bag had ten decorations in it. These little hearts came in pairs - that was even better value!
So I got 40 little hearts for just $2.
At Christmas time they would have cost me $6 a pair - and they're only plastic.
So that's $120 worth of decorations for just $2 - BARGAIN!
We set to work painting them.
The crafting starts early in the morning (every day) at our house, this was before breakfast!
Rather than try and paint dots on them I painted some paper and puched out the dots with my little vintage hole punch - which I found at the Op shop for 50cents last week!
A coat of 'Mod Podge' made them all lovely and shiny.
I was going to hang them on a branch but I could find one I liked, so we just strung them up as a garland.
Liberty presented me with this sweet little roombox this morning.
It was her Valentine's Day present to me!
She worked on it with her daddy in the garage. She found a wooden box and painted it white then got her dad to add a piece of wood for the porch, which she had him score floorboards on.
Liberty asked me if she could borrow some of my dollhouse stuff, lol!
This morning she said she needed to go outside to get some fresh air ( I wondered why!) and she came back in with this precious little gift of love!
