Here are some of the things we’ve used to deck the halls with love here. There are a few things left for me to finish, but it’s a start.
Cupcakes. Mocha Frosting. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is… Simeon helped me every step of the way. He also picked out the wrappers. They have hearts on them.
I got these lace paper hearts from the dollar spot at Target (love) and hung them in the hall. Simeon dances under them to make them move.
This was a dollar store wreath. I spray painted it pink with left over paint from Cordelia’s room. Those are felt hearts and felt strips. I sewed pink buttons on the hearts and wrote Welcome Love in glitter glue. Leo says it looks like a do not enter sign with the felt strips on the diagonal. Psht!
These are tiny frames I picked up for a dollar at Michael’s last year. I tore the plastic cover and stitched felt for the center. This is a shelf above the stairs when you enter.
We’ve spent hours and hours building legos. I call this one lego love.
Dollar store wreath. You can’t tell but it’s half red, half gray. The flower is made of coffee filters.
Paper hearts glued on candles I picked up at IKEA for 49cents last summer. The other side of a mirror has a collage photo we made with photo booth. It’s matted with some vintage-ish scrap paper.
Part of the unfinished mantel.
On either side of the unfinished mantel I used dollar store wreaths and red yarn. They have felt flowers with pink buttons.
I still want to make an advent-ish calendar and pennants. Then I think I’m done. Simeon and I will make a scrapbook with photo booth pictures we made. We’ll make Valentine’s for people we love. We’ll make more cupcakes (because the world will never have enough cupcakes). We’ll build more legos. We’ll draw pictures. We’ll make some stained glass-ish heart art with coffee filters. And whatever other love themed activities I can come up with. I’ll try to showcase some of them here.
If you have ideas… share!
On an unrelated note: Grey’s. Callie is pregnant with Mark’s baby. What?!?!
