Our Valentine House

I have been so excited to decorate for Valentine's Day this year.
Probably because last year we had just started to get ready to sell our old house on Rosemary and none of this stuff was allowed!

So this year, bring it on! 

2 heart wreaths for our front doors.
Made from cupcake wrappers, 150 for each wreath, yep 300 wrappers.
I did a little search for Valentine's wreaths and found this really cute one

I found 2 wreath forms at Hobby Lobby.
Already red glittered so there was no need to wrap with ribbon.
Then spent some quality time with my glue gun and the cupcake wrappers.
I love them.

And while I was hanging around Tatertots and Jello,
I found these very easy and very cute Valentine's Day Ruffle Balls.

So easy, and they go great in my hurricane jar.

Remember that L'Amour Charm pack that I was waiting on the other day?
Well it arrived and I made a banner out of the charms.

It was really tough to take pictures of but it is so cute in person.

And these felt rosette balls took FOREVER!
But very worth it.

I made just two of them,
I originally planned on making several but just don't have the time.
But they sit up on our mantle nicely.

I am still using the candy jar I made at Halloween,
so easy to just switch out the bow and add new candy.

So there you have it, our Valentine's Day House.
