Valentine's Ideas from Kristi

Click HERE for TrolleyCards Giveaway! I made this shirt for my 2 year old daughter and it turned out great. I bought different colors of tulle and cut them into small square pieces. I traced a heart onto this white shirt and then scrunched up the squares of tulle and hot glued them onto the shirt. Use a back of a pencil to press the tulle down and then you won't burn yourself. After all the tulle was applied, I hot glued rhinestones into the center of the tulle. Please use hand wash only on your washer, and air dry, so that nothing will come off! I might make one for myself!!

I bought copper wire at Home Depot (lots of it, about 30 feet) and had my husband help me wrap and form this big heart that hangs outside on my shepherds' hook all month long! After bending and shaping the heart, I spray painted it red and added ribbon to it as well!
Here is my ribbon wreath for Valentine's Day! I just love it! My favorite apothecary jars filled with none other then: Candy and heart shaped marshmallows!!
How could I not make a wreath out of valentine candy?!?!? This is 2 years old and still going strong!
Happy Valentine's Day! This is one of my favorite holidays and hearts are adorning my house everywhere. Here are a few ideas to help your home be filled with more valentine decor!
Love, Kristi

I love that shirt! So cute, and easy. The ribbon wreath was great too, but I bet time consuming to make.

Your ribbon wreath looks like a big version of mine! I like yours better! I'll keep that wire in mind. I just used a hanger.
